    That's really odd. It looks like oil, but they said it isn't. I have no idea what the hell that is.

            Nothing says it's living; but it's algae if it is.

            Where does it say it is "alive"?

            Anyway, it looks like crude oil to me...

              Yuck, thats nasty. It has to be oil because of the looks of it. I'm wondering how they're going to clean it up?

                Ugh... That's revolting! I don't have a clue what it is, either. Maybe oil?

                    It all makes sense now! Sarah Palin's administration created this! That is why she resigned! So the terrible organism she created in her diabolical expiraments wouldn't be blamed on her! It's just a matter of time before it metamorphasizes and helps her concur the world!

                    To the panic room!

                    I think it's just a new species of Slime Mold. Slime mold is mold on land or ocean that is motile, and it looks like slime.

                      That my friend is none other than mouldy slurry, probably dumped or fell off the back of a fishing liner and drifted in with the tide.

                              BTW to the OP, it never says anywhere that the stuff is moving by itself or that it's alive, it says it is floating along. Just thought I'd mention that for the record.

                                Heh, looks like I'm not the only one who figured it might be slime mold. I just hope they figure out what it is quickly before it spreads.
