Gigantic New SuperOrganism with ‘Social Intelligence’ is Devouring the Titanic

Not science fiction, somehow:

Scientists believe that this strange super-organism is using a common microbial language that could be either chemical or electrical -a phenomenon called “quorum sensing” by which whole communities “sense” each other’s presence and activities aiding and abetting the organization, cooperation, and growth.

The Titanic is being eaten by a huge, complex, distributed, monster. Sounds just peachy.
