Re: What was that stuff?

I'd take a guess and say precipitation!

Without any doubt if it's precipitaiton it contains dihydrogen monoxide. An exceptionally dangerous chemical. It's deadly to breath, will cause your boat to corrode, and is directly involved in climate change. (I hope Reefmagnet don't see this one).

Here's a link to a reliable link with good citation (Alien'sareTrue.com)
