IT CAME FROM THE RALEIGH SEWERS!

Sounds like a bad Fifties B-movie, doesn't it?

But in reality, something slimy and ominous is lurking in the sluiceways of the capital of North Carolina.

Behold the horror that was recently discovered by a maintenance "snake camera"...

This video has gone viral bigtime in the past day or so, with some speculating that there might be an alien organism breeding beneath the streets of Raleigh. Personally, I thought it looked a lot like something out of the video game Dead Space, or maybe the insides of that giant worm from Gears of War 2.

But as it turns out, it's actually a colony of tubifex worms, which are said to be common in sewers but rarely documented in such up-close detail.

Still looks pretty dang deees-gusting though :-)

(Thanks to Lex Alexander for the fascinating find!)
