Blue Goo Falls From Sky Into British Man’s Yard

gooThe mysterious spheres of jelly are “not meteorological” in nature. The whole thing smacks of a 90s Nickelodeon game show gone horribly awry. Via BBC:

A man in Dorset has been left mystified after tiny blue spheres fell from the sky into his garden. Steve Hornsby said [they] came raining down late on Thursday afternoon during a hail storm.

He found about a dozen of the balls in his garden. He said: “[They’re] difficult to pick up, I had to get a spoon and flick them into a jam jar.” The Met Office said the jelly-like substance was “not meteorological”.

Mr Hornsby, a former aircraft engineer, said: “The sky went a really dark yellow colour…As I walked outside to go to the garage there was an instant hail storm for a few seconds and I thought, ‘what’s that in the grass’?”

Walking around his garden he found many more blue spheres were scattered across the grass. He said: “The have an exterior shell with a softer inner but have no smell, aren’t sticky and do not melt.”

Josie Pegg, an applied science research assistant at Bournemouth University, speculated that the apparently strange phenomena might be “marine invertebrate eggs”.

            J’aime utiliser l’équipement minier modifiés pour tuer des extraterrestres. Le coupeur de plasma est votre ami.

            le coupeur plasma, ce nest pas mon prefere, maintenant j aime beaucoup le flamethrower ou le `line gun`, hier soir jai jouais le `mini game du asteroid`merde merde merde, cest trop difficile!!!!

          • Anarchy Pony | Jan 30, 2012 at 2:32 pm |

            Laissez-passer à l’anglais s’il vous plaît. I hate the flamethrower, I just can’t get into it, it is just not as effective as I wish it was. The line gun however, is a dominant force. Cut all three tentacles off of a lurker in one shot = epic win. I also love the ripper.

          • Jin The Ninja | Jan 30, 2012 at 2:42 pm |

            no prob;) haven`t used the ripper yet- the thing about the flamethrower is you do have to aim at the limbs, which can be annoying in the heat of the moment, but it`s great for taking out the babies, stingers, and that guy whose armour you can`t shoot through.

          • Anarchy Pony | Jan 30, 2012 at 2:49 pm |

            The babies are lurkers, and the big guy is a brute. The ripper, once you get it a little upgraded makes short work of leapers(the guys that run around on their arms) and regular and enhanced slashers. Also I love the force gun. It doesn’t seem like much, but if you get its damage upgraded twice it is great, ’cause it knocks all lesser necromorphs down and can usually smash them to bits after that, it can also totally obliterate a whole group of swarmers in one shot.

            as soon as i beat the bloody minigame i’ll get the ripper/force gun.

            i do like flying guillotines of death/invisible telekinetic smashing.

          • Anarchy Pony | Jan 30, 2012 at 2:57 pm |

            Are you stuck on the asteroid section? That thing can be such a bitch. 
            What’re you gamin’ on ninja? You online at all?

          • Jin The Ninja | Jan 30, 2012 at 3:00 pm |

            i was playing skyrim a bit online after you said it was good, but i got bored of it really fast/too hard. lol.


          • Anarchy Pony | Jan 30, 2012 at 3:02 pm |

            No I meant what console? Or are you an uptight PC gamer?

          • Jin The Ninja | Jan 30, 2012 at 3:14 pm |

            sorry ps3 (formerly psthrizzle-i shouldn’t show off my slanguage:P)- not really i am on a pretty good gaming rig, but for school/work i need something really fast and i hate apple. i dabble in mmorpgs on rare occasion.

          • Anarchy Pony | Jan 30, 2012 at 3:16 pm |

            Oh, PS-thrizzle, I get it. Dumb I am, you on PSN or mostly offline? 

          • Jin The Ninja | Jan 30, 2012 at 2:52 pm |

            double postage.

  2. My theory? It’s a disinfectant mixed with shit from an airline toilet.


  3. justagirl | Jan 30, 2012 at 3:16 pm |

    guess what…  the sky is falling.

  4. Anarchy Pony | Jan 30, 2012 at 3:26 pm |

    Damn Jin, our thread got all smooshed, meet me back up here. Anyway my PSN tag is WolfeDesKrieg so drop me a line if you want.

  5. Ill bet money they are some type of water polymers. Possibly for some reason unknown to us the Gov is doing some type of experiment with them and weather. Just a thought.

  6. DeepCough | Jan 30, 2012 at 11:29 pm |

    Goddamn chemtrails!

  7. It is actually a discharge form aeroplane toilets. The blue colour is from the toilet disinfectant.
