Happy Thanksgiving! Now meet the ice finger of death. According to the BBC, it kills all that it touches, freezing any living thing in its path in an "icy tomb". It also might be the most stunning thing you watch all day, so without further ado, here

Pretty neat, but been going on for milennia obviously and doesn't harm much. I was more fascinated by the starfish and other creatures in the vid.

I've never seen anything like this. Amazing. It certainly isn't good for those who get trapped but if it has been going on for thousands of years I guess it is jut part of the natural scheme of things even if it is unpleasant for those poor being who get stuck in its path. It looked a bit sci-fi to me.

Scary! Hope this doesn't expand to freeze more creatures in other parts. We already have so many problems.
