Awesome! I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard at a post. Funniest thing I've read in quite awhile.

Okay , seeing that we are now on page ten without any leads or clues , and that the general consensus here is that it might be a box , I will venture to say that it is a cold 'case' .


Then again , it could be one of Nixon's missing Watergate tapes ...

Going back to the original post, the magnetic south pole is on land anyway isn't it (since 2005).

Since this was apparently so special why didn't someone ask a crew member to note the ship's
position at that time so others can follow this up?

Doing some research on this subject and who know's if this is really from Antarctica but it does not look anything like this so it being petrified wood is out of the question. On ABC they have a really good picture of the block, and it looks more like a plank of wood then anything. historical.ha.com...

blogs.abc.net.au...


I need to add this there was a shipwreck off of Antarctica in 2007 it could have came from there possibly?? : www.reuters.com...

Another story of one more shipwreck off of there from 2010: www.gazette.net...
edit on 26-1-2011 by Golithion because: Possibilities.


Needed to add this since the thought of it being a piece of wood from the former explorers was brought up great study on preservation of these huts in Antarctica, including pics: forestpathology.cfans.umn.edu...

Maybe its from the 'titanic' just a piece of it which drifted off and got caught up in the forming Ice.... or its just some drifting wood from somewhere which got caught up in the Ice...

Dracula's coffin maybe? who knows, its just a piece of junk on a piece of ice, its wierd though. Maybe is a coffin that was frozen for thousands of years and now, with all this global warming stuff the ice melted and the coffin is out again. Uhm.. here's another theory, PANDORA'S BOX.

S&F for this one!

a piece of wood on iceberg and now Mystery piano found on sandbar in miami
A grand piano has been discovered on a sandbar in the middle of Biscayne Bay in Miami.
This is a rather surreal that this instrument ghostly semblance wait a hypothetical pianist for a concert in the middle of the water!

But now, nobody knows how this musical instrument was arrive in that place

The piano must weigh in the 300 kg and there no trail around.




i think we will see more and more things like that, all the dimention are collapsing past present futur soon will become one

It's obviously an eddie in the space-time continuum, as is the piano.

Someone should jump on it.

If it smells like a box and looks like a box then it must be a box. That's my conclussion & I'm sticking to it. I guess Jimmy Hoffa could be in there...

I am thinking about the opening scenes on Close Encounters where random objects appeared in the most random of locations. Perhaps next we will find a Coke bottle vending machine from the 70's perches on the Andes lol

Very interesting find, it does appear to have a bit of pixalation around the edges, which says photoshop to me but who knows interesting none the less.

This is interesting because it could imply human manufacture. It is square, seemingly cut and embedded in an iceberg. Figuring it's made of wood – it should be no problem to date and determine the exact age of the wood, what type of wood, and perhaps how long it has been embedded in the ice by examination of the iceberg.

It takes a very long time for a glacier to form, break off and melt.:

Has anyone attempted to see how deep it goes? Has anyone attempted to remove it?


Too bad the article is so tongue and cheek about the artifact – since it could add more to the pile of evidence that promotes human civilization at the time of – or even before the last ice age (12,000+ years ago)
This thing (the wood) could be from the last ice age (more data is needed!!!). Very interesting – S&F!

I have to agree with RMFX1. It's a piece of wood from some ship or other. You can just imagine two drunken sailors... " ere Jaques, lets throw this piece of wood onto that iceberg and years from now it'll turn up and cause all kinds of conspiracy shenanigans, har har".

On the other hand it could be a piece of wood from that grand piano that washed up on the Florida sandbank


I haven't read all replies to this, so if I've pinched someones joke, I apologise.

Peace brothers

Here's what I was thinking: I was picturing a bridge...for cars!!!


Despite the fact that the south pole has no known land-mass for said-bridge, what's the population down there? Like, one??

Oh Springer. That's why you're the owner and I'm just a member

You may be thinking of the North Pole; the South Pole certainly does have a land mass. As continents go, its land mass makes it the 5th largest continent out of 7 (larger than each Europe and Australia).
Antarctic Land

As for the object itself, wherever there are people, there is garbage. This block of wood could simply be a piece of rubbish that was cast off (or broke off) an ice-breaking ship, or perhaps it was floating in the water and a large wave carried it onto the iceberg.
