Their first thought was "Is Kenny Rogers still alive?"

Worm: " Geez, I'm thirsty. Do you have a Fresca or something ? "

I think this is how the movie THE BLOB started. It would not have ended well except for Steve McQueen.

Did they see their shadows?

I'm not sure if this how the 'Blob' started or if it was 'Dune'

Actually, it was "The Thing From Outer Space," based on the classic "Who Crawls There" by John W. (Worm) Campbell.

No guys it was Tremors

Have we learned NOTHING from the movies??

I thought it was the Biden campaign...

These scientists need to watch John Carpenter's 1982 movie, THE THING before waking up nematodes or anything else that has been napping in ice for 40,000 years. Whatever they dig up will be cranky and upset about being dug up. The phrase, "let sleeping dogs lie" has been a good philosophy for centuries. But if scientists behaved rationally, we would have no horror movies to watch on dark and stormy nights.

Cthluthlu is pleased.

@OldPhil - I think that they awken the Ancient Ones. It is not going to end well.

Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.

I didn’t know the Rolling Stones were in the Arctic

It is certainly concerning that they are 40,000 year old ancient worms, not 40,000 year old young ones.
