    Post ''In His House at R'lyeh, Dead Cthulhu Waits Dreaming''

    Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.
    In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.

    In The Call of Cthulhu, author H.P. Lovecraft indicated that the buried city and tomb of the Elder God Cthulhu was buried underwater somewhere in the pacific ocean. In fact, Lovecraft went so far as to provide exact coordinates. Latitude 47°9′S, Longitude 126°43′W.

    In 1997, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration detected several strange sounds, now referred to as "bloops," while performing ultra-low frequency sound tests in the general area of coordinates once given by Lovecraft. (The fact that the NOAA was in this area, doing these tests, is a coincidence. It was not related to, or inspired by, the Lovecraft mythology.)

    In reference to the sound, the NOAA was quoted as saying "Though it matches the audio profile of a living creature, there is no known animal that could have produced the sound. If it is an animal it would have to be huge - much larger than even a Blue whale, according to scientists who have studied the phenomenon."

    The sounds made by the "creature" have led some to speculate that it is as yet an unidentified species of squid or octopus, or perhaps a gigantic species of fish or whale not yet seen by human eyes.

    Cthulhu, it should be noted, is often described as a creature of epic proportions, with squid-like, octupus-like features.

    Dietsch-

    That is absolutely hilarious! I know this cartoon rally pissed off Jack Chick who did the sanctimonious cartoon this parodies, and I believe he even sued the cartoonist. I'm a big H.P. Lovecraft fan, so this is priceless.

    The actual bloop sound, speeded up 16 times:

    Bloop speeded up


    The laughter-like in the middle is truely scary

    Unfortunately, the original sound is not available, but here is a slowed down version:

    amplitude slowed




    Why does this comic quote the saying wrong? It is:

    "That is not dead which can eternal lie, yet with strange aeons even death may die"
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    That is not dead which can eternal lie,
    And with strange aeons even death may die.


    Oh, the unspeakable horror
