    the "string" falls down right before the end, and that thing keeps on moving.

    Wow, I wanna see the insides. [​IMG]

    No seriously, I do. Why can't they just pull that thing off and dissect it?

    And P1ng, maybe if you read the video description on YouTube for the video, you would know it was a nail like pin in the seam of the pipe.

    Ok so maybe its not a string, but its not a new life form either.

    They are clumps of annelid worms, almost certainly tubificids (Naididae, probably genus Tubifex). Normally these occur in soil and sediment, especially at the bottom and edges of polluted streams. In the photo they have apparently entered a pipeline somehow, and in the absence of soil they are coiling around each other. The contractions you see are the result of a single worm contracting and then stimulating all the others to do the same almost simultaneously, so it looks like a single big muscle contracting. Interesting video.

    Here's a more clear video of these Tubiflex worms in the wild. Not quite as horrifying, but still pretty gross.



    so shudup

    Its definitely worms covered in slime...
    Or that doctor who episode was real...

    Even so, the real matter here is that *someone* dares try to p0wn p1ngy, which previous examples will show, NEVER WORK AS HE WILL USE IT AGAINST YOU! *shudder*
    (run, p1ngpong is gonna get someone p0wned)

    Those worms could be dangerous if they leave the sewer which will most likely happen and infest humans.

    Doesn't look like tubifex at all to me. Normally, when encysted, they won't move at all, let's not mention moving that much.

    Also, such a "not a new life form either", well, it's probably easier to find a "new" (read: up until now unknown) life form than one that's been discovered already. It could be some surt of slug or coloniae (with no real tissue, like fungi) of something. The "new lifeform" thing is highly over rated thanks to sci-fi.

    Those are tasty and are properly cooked extra crispy with the right seasonings. A good reason to travel to Thailand.
