It is more than 100km wide and its fluorescent blue sheen has been spotted by NASA satellites in the south-eastern Indian Ocean.

It all sounds a little ominous - like those giant oarfish that were popping up from the depths of the sea a few months ago - it's not.
As a matter of fact, it's beautiful. While it looks like whirlpool, but it's actually a giant bloom of plankton in a spiral current called an eddy.

Cool 

I'd be checking to see if it originated over around the Muraroa Atoll !?!

The Kraken may have been snacking on Pacific French Fries..

Oh! I saw this GIGANTIC MASSIVE THING! I meant to say!
It was after a particularly drug-fuelled party.
Can anyone tell me, does this thing have legs, wear a bow tie and could it have possibly walked to England?

That doesn't make a single iota of sense. But, as you mentioned, I too was disappointed when I clicked this thread and didn't see any massive testicles.
