Baltic Sea UFO Probably Not UFO

Remember the mysterious UFO-shaped object from a few days back? Well it seemed to get a bit weirder when it was found all electrical equipment (allegedly) stops working when near it.

“The Swedish divers, who call themselves the Ocean X Team, claim the object is giving off electrical interference that keeps foiling their attempts to investigate it. “Anything electric out there — and the satellite phone as well — stopped working when we were above the object,” said diver Stefan Hoberborn in an Ocean X press release.”

Bunk, says some dude from the Mars Space Flight University via MSNBC.

“In this case, the team clearly has a lot to gain from an extraordinary claim,” he said. “Mr. Lindberg is already making plans to take ‘wealthy tourists’ down in his submarine to view the object. If he had used a rock hammer to break off a small piece of the object, a geologist could have determined whether it was a pillow basalt in a few minutes. But if it turned out to be a pillow basalt and not a ‘mysterious UFO-like object’, Mr. Lindberg wouldn’t have much of a business plan, would he?”

OMG that’s totally a UFO. What else could it be?! Oh, right. A rock.

‘UFO Lying on The Bottom of the Baltic Sea?’

This is a bit freaky.

‘A Swedish expedition team has found an unidentified object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, leaving some to believe it’s the remnants of an extra-terrestrial ship…The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, working like an opening. On top of the object, they found strange stone circle formations, which resembled small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something that resembled “soot.”’
