Run, don't walk, from Alaska's Arctic Coast! A strange, black blob has been spotted there.--- It devours wildlife, leaving behind nothing but bones and feathers. Scientists say it's biological—not some kind of chemical spill or oil slick. The Navy says, "It's some sort of naturally occurring organic or otherwise marine organism" [emphasis mine]. A possibly non-organic organism? Does that mean ... from space?!?!?!?!

No wonder Sarah Palin's fleeing the state.

I hope everybody's careful up there ...

In the provided video footage, it's just sort of lying there, floating in the ocean like a 10-mile-long paramecium. I wish there were video of it eating something, though. That would be awesome.

Somebody up there in Alaska, fly out there and throw it a pork chop or somthing. I want to see it chewing.
