Off the coast of Aberdene Scotland a frigate sank in smooth seas when it
is assumed that methane gas from rotting seaweed became concentrared
enough to cause the water to lose its tension? density? something?.Is this
for real? Paul Harvey News lat December 2000.Chemist from that city
confirmed its rare but it happens.
