    The Anchorage Daily News reports that a 15 mile-long blob of unknown, 'gooey,' probably organic material is floating past communities on Alaska's North Slope. The US Coast Guard sent pollution experts to investigate, who determined that it was not an oil spill or other type of pollution, but were unable to determine what it is. A sample is currently being analyzed by experts in Anchorage, while the blob is following the current northwards.

    Maybe it's the source of this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slow_Do...entified_sound)


    Maybe it decided to go around Alaska for a bit, and now it's dead from the cold. Or, it could just be TONS and TONS of dead sea creatures that have finally floated to the surface after being stuck to something in the murky depths for so many years.

    Or Cthulu waking up, even tho he's way more south.

    Maybe it's a gooey parasite that will cause zombi-facation. Like Phantom sorta suggested, minus the detail part.

    Is it orange and Tang-like in consistency?

    Because if so... our only hope is to reverse-engineer it into giant robots and make fucked-up teenagers pilot them.

    EDIT:

    It could be a bunch of dead Blue Whale's. Or Basking Sharks. Whenever either one dies, over time big, nasty chunks of organic blobs (Their body parts, actually) will float to the surface. If they wash up somewhere, people freak out and claim them to be sea monsters and all that jazz.
