'Sewer Monster' discovered below Cameron Village
The sewer monster is made up of thousands of tiny organisms called bryozoans, or moss animacules, said N.C. State University biologist Thomas Kwak. Invertebrates, they bunch together in colonies and feed with tiny tentacles.
"They can get as big as the size of a watermelon," he said.
They've been known to clog pipes, but Raleigh officials aren't worried, even though bryozoans can move up to 10 centimeters a day. "I don't know if we've seen anything move on its own inside a sanitary sewer line," Public Utilities Director Dale Crisp said.
Seems to be some debate whether they're bryozoans or tubifex worms, but personally, I think they look like something out of Prey.
System Shock 2 did it!
"mmmmmmyy beautiful annnneelids.""
Oh god, here come the nurses...
This is where I'd photoshoop a SS2 mother's face onto some movie poster if I weren't so fucking drunk.
That's it.. sip.. relax... and listen to the song of the Many...
My is full of wonderful ideas and experiments!
The fight between Bryozoans and Annelids is not decided yet. Someone needs to get down there and actually take samples, THE WORLD MUST KNOW!!!
THAT IS EXCELLENT. It's, like, a poo elemental.

I lolled then I wikipediaed.
Just beware of when they gain their range attack (see normal growth and aging table)
We've been sending probes out here since the seventies. So have you guys. And in all that time none of us have detected so much as a hint of life on any of Jupiter's moons. Then 10 years ago the monolith was discovered, Discovery was launched and everything went wacko, you catching my drift?
Looks like a big pulsing blob of emphysema lung. I used to feed (dead, freeze-dried) tubifex worms to my fish; I probably would have been less cheerful about buying a big old bag of them if I'd seen this first.
it reminds me of kombucha
wanna come run through some sewer pipes in st paul with me? the worst i can promise is some weird spiders that crystalize to expel their young. it's an extensive system of approximately 7 miles of random tunnels that eventually discard to the mississippi river..
So that's not...mud...in the river?
Also in Australia.
If this bryozoan blobby thing starts raping school girls with its tentacles, my life will be complete.
I believe the technical term is "Golgotha Shit Demon".
I saw only the video last week and didn't have the context or location, so thanks for posting this.
I must say I'm fascinated by these things. I'm glad such things don't just exist in horror/SF tales.
(Also: let's hear it for the boys from my alma mater, w00t)
