In 1997, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recorded a strange sound in the ocean at 50S; 100W. Strange and LOUD. So loud that it was picked up by two separate microphones 3,000 miles apart. The sound, dubbed "The Bloop," doesn't sound like anything at normal speed. However, the NOAA did us the favor of speeding up the recording to 16 times the normal speed, Scientists determined that its wave pattern indicates it was made by an animal. There is no animal big enough or loud enough to make that kind of noise, not by a long shot. Not a blue whale, not a howler monkey, or a startled teenage girl. What do you think it is? I thought it was cool so I put it up. I read about it on Cracked.com. You can see where it happened on the map part on this video.
