The Bloop Mystery
In the year 1997, a massive underwater noise prompted people around the world to start considering the possibility of underwater mega fauna. The Bloop was picked up by multiple underwater listening stations across the Pacific Ocean, and immediately reached fame among fans of the paranormal everywhere. The almost lifelike aspects of the mysterious sounds caused speculation that it must be the call of some yet undiscovered sea monster. Analysts found the sound to be several times louder than the call of the blue whale, which is currently the largest known marine animal. Once again science seems to have ruined the mystery, with the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmosphere Commission) releasing a report that theorizes The Bloop to be a boring old ice sheet breaking up. When played next to another recording, The Bloop does sound eerily similar to the destruction of a polar ice sheet. This new evidence has not stopped armchair theorists from deciding that the mystery of The Bloop is still alive. The internet is riddled with amateurs in love with the idea of a giant ocean creature. The weight seems to be with the report of the NOAA, as science normally prevails over people writing nonsense on the internet.
