If you haven’t heard, we may or may not have a gargantuan sea creature living in the deepest parts of the ocean. In 1997, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) discovered an ultra-low frequency and extremely powerful underwater sound, which they named the “Bloop.” NOAA did not, however, discover the origin of the sound.
Here’s the recorded sound of the Bloop at 16x the original speed:
Here’s how the NOAA describes the Bloop: “[it] rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km.” Dr. Christopher Fox, a member of NOAA, believes it to be a man-made sound, such as a submarine or bomb, or a geological event, such as a volcano or earthquake. Unfortunately, no such recorded sounds of geological or man-made events matche the Bloop, leaving the case open for further investigation.
There are some individuals who believe the Bloop to be the sound of an unidentified gargantuan creature. To give you an idea of the size of the unknown creator of the Bloop, the sound is several times louder than the loudest known animal, the blue whale. But it’s not only the sound that we have to take into consideration, it’s also the location of the sound.
The triangulated origin of the Bloop is roughly 950 nautical miles from the precisely-described location of R’lyeh, the sunken extra-dimensional city in The Call of Cthulu. Are you starting to see what I see?

The God of Chaos and Madness has awoken! His reign of insanity is the only explanation for our trying, troubled times. Gas price inflation, international wars, riots, genocides, rapes, uncontrolled law enforcement corruption, it is all the work of the Lord Cthulu. Our nations, our leaders, and our world is being bent to the ruling of his dead-but-dreaming idealism. If only HP Lovecraft was still around, he’d know what to do! (Or, at least, write a sweet story about it.)
We should take bets on which happens first: the Rapture or the reign of Cthulu. Maybe they’re two of the same? That certainly would explain Harold Camping blowing $140,000 on billboards.
