Life Imitates CTHULHU FHTAGN

 

H.P. Lovecraft, creator of pseduo-Victorian-horror-sci-fi, is awesome.

In “The Call of Cthulhu” the coordinates for R’lyeh, Cthulhu’s watery grave, are given at 47°9′S, 126°43′W, near the Pacific pole of inaccessibility. Totally arbitrary and fictional, right?

Nope. In the summer of 1997, the NOAA detected a HUGE unidentified underwater sound, nicknamed “The Bloop” near the same coordinates. The source, apparently, was biological. The sound has not happened since. CNN article. Wikipedia Coverage.

Listen to the Bloop. Freaky.

According to the article, some speculate that the sound may have come from a “huge and as-yet unidentified species of octopus or squid.”

Coincidence? I think not.
