    It looks like some kid stuck his gum underneath the ledge!

    Here's a closer shot of the medallion. I wish I'd had time to get more pics.

    Did you ever see the movie The Blob?

    Be careful and keep a few fire extinguishers handy!!!

    What did it feel like, rough and gritty, or slimy?

    You took your pictures and ran away, didn't you?:dork2:

    Slimy, and it tasted like angelfood cake.

    I had to run away, but I am very interested in relocating it for a closer look. I had people with me, who were not quite as science minded as I am.

    It looks like the end is *heavy*.

    Really crusted-over monofilament and a fishing weight? Perhaps string?

    No... I'm pretty sure this is alive.

    If it's coated with biofilm, it *is* alive.

    Alive... with Slime. Goo. Mucilage. Boogers.

    Looks bacterial and fungal. Boogers I say.

    I've seen similar things in the Bahamas I think. I am very curious what it is...
