Gadzooks! Did none of these experts see the movie, The Blob? Don't touch it, whatever you do. It might dissolve you and get bigger.

Seriously, that is interesting. Wonder what the goo really is.

Wow, some of those explanations really are a stretch. Bombing runs that sent jellyfish high enough they landed 50 miles away? Frog innards? That's a lot of dead frogs. Air plane droppings? That's a loty of poo. The human pathological need for answers is definitely in display in those reports. Sometimes you have to be sane enough to say: "I don't know!" or sane enough to accept that no one knows.
