Surviving the World

Lesson #1471 - Aquatic Discoveries

If other scientists can get away with this, there better not be anyone in the entire world angry with me when I call my world-changing scientific discovery, "Horace".

Very sneaky with the hallucinations, Horace.

For the record, 'the Bloop' is just one of a number of unidentified sounds that scientists have named. The others have similarly unique names: 'Train', 'Slow Down', 'Whistle', 'Upsweep', and . . . 'Julia'. What if the sound is coming from a male sea creature who is insulted because he was named 'Julia'? Way to go, very lonely scientist who named an unidentified underwater sound 'Julia' just so he would have someone to talk to. You've doomed us all.
