A New Species of Sea Anemone Lives Upside Down in Antarctica
An Antarctic drilling program recently busted through a sheet of ice and discovered a new species of ethereal sea anemone that clearly came from space, finally proving our longstanding suspicion that every single facet of John Carpenter's The Thing was 100 percent truth.

"We also saw a guy from that weird Norwegian team chasing after his dog. He fell down a couple of times; it was pretty funny."
There were literally tens of thousands of these things right underneath their feet, the first known species of sea anemone to live in the ice (presumably because their home planet in the Negative Zone is a moon of perpetual winter). It's not like there's a ton of stuff living under that ice with them, so what are they eating? They look like grasping hentai ghost hands, so our guess is that they snatch the grotesque spirits of the damned on their descent down to hell and digest them for a thousand years.
Either that, or plankton.
