    Remember that Millenium Falcon shaped thing they found in the baltic sea last year?

    http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article14918073.ab

    well they are about to go dive for it. the article is in swedish but just use Google translate. The clip is also in Swedish except close to the end where its in english. I posted this because Im sick and tired of hearing about cool discoveries and then never hearing another word about them. The dive team are sceptical that its alien, more likely meteor, gas or natural formation, although the thing has a 300 meter dragmark behind it...

    I'm interested in seeing how this turns out. My dad knows a guy that is involved in large slavage operations. He said they once found a shipping container and brought it up. When they opened it, it was literally full of dead people. So it should be interesting to see what other secrets the ocean is hiding.

    Where did you get this from? There has been no local news about the USA or Russia having any military exercises on the Baltic sea.

    Do you have any more details on this? Surely this would've been news headline material, in a big way.

    That's no moon...
    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Nope not really. It was something they weren't suppose to talk about. The government gave them a very hard time about it, like they might have done it themselves, and then told them not to talk about it. I don't know why. It was found in international waters and it was a well known salvage company.

    Given the objects location, size and shape. If it is a craft of some sort and not just a land formation, I would say a Russian Novgorod boat is a pretty safe bet.

    Caution -- Aftonbladet is the Swedish equivalent of Fox NEWS. This is not news worthy and it's obviously a fake story / photo.

    It's funny everyone thinks governments can be corrupt and cover stuff up... and yet.

    I'm not personally vested in it one way or another. I was just relating something from someone who seems to be a reliable source because he had first hand knowledge and is a professional in the salvage industry.

    I did a quick google search myself (string: shipping container full of corpses) and found several simular occurances. Here's a forum discussion based on a article from 2009.

    Believe or not, I don't care.

    Oh, I wasn't intending to discredit your information. What I was implying was that the government sure made a tight cover up.

    Shipping containers of dead bodies certainly isn't impossible, quite probable actually, but I would say that the scenario surrounding this kind of macabre occurrence probably isn't as exotic as we might like to imagine.
    Illegal immigrants would be my bet.

    well, they said the expidition will take about 2 weeks, and they set of on the first of june, so Im guessing end of june, but who knows how long it will take them to compile the data or find anything at all. It might be an elaborate hoax (a long time ago in a galaxy far far away) maybe its amazing marketing from lucas for the new star wars live action that theyved secretly been filming behind our backs!

    As I said, Im excited because this is the first time ive heard of a cool thing in the news that has actually gotten a follow up.

    The nightmare corpse-city of R'lyeh…was built in measureless eons behind history by the vast, loathsome shapes that seeped down from the dark stars. There lay great Cthulhu and his hordes, hidden in green slimy vaults.

    Remember that Millenium Falcon shaped thing they found in the baltic sea last year?

    They said "It's definitely something". Can't be clearer than that.

    No news here but more of a video version of the link posted above.
