The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

It's cold (0 – 3 °C), completely dark (no photosynthesis), and food is very scarce (some fish rely on eating their own young when they come back, fat and naive, after reaching adulthood at the surface). And The Blob™ is an ambush predator as they say in the video, so it just sits there waiting for a juicy morsel to come along.

A very exciting life. :mrgreen:

Oops, that was a mistake. I didn't mean to hit post, just preview. Things in [webm] tags don't display on my browser. I have to delete the tag to actually see it.
