The Horror! horror...

An old bag can tell a story. Much like in the movie Titanic.

If that same type of ship crashed today, there'd be hips, knees, chins, and many sets of tits floating above the wreckage.

Well, the old bag did jump into the ocean at the end of it.

Yeah, and the greedy coont took the diamond with her.

Isn't the ocean, strictly speaking, already a chemical soup?

So we're just like the boorish oaf in a fancy restaurant adding ketchup to the gazpatcho.

That's what pissed me off the most, too. There's her granddaughter sitting there and the dusty old biatch is more worried about her one-night-stand's moldering corpse being properly accessorized.

Sure, the bag can be there legally, but should it? Think of all the people who are still sensitive to that sinking. Never forget 4-14

This guy and I have exactly the same name and we are constantly getting calls and emails meant for the other. The number of times I have been asked to lecture on science and he has been asked to lecture on design is astonishing.

Because of that we have a bit of a friendship. And I tried very hard (and very unsucessfully) to get onboard this expedition to Titanic.

Would have sucked to go all that way and just see a plastic bag.

Yeah, Cool story...

So, lemme get this straight...

A plastic bag floating on the water is an unthinkable horror, but a plastic bag floating on the breeze is "the most beautiful thing in the world"?

Okay, got it. I think.

It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in.

No. No she didn't. I hoped she would, but she selfishly dropped the priceless gem into the water, freeing her granddaughter from a lifetime of wealth, and then either died in her bed or dreamed that she reunited with Gilbert Grape's little brother on the restored Titanic and everybody thought that was so farking cool they applauded.

BunkyBrewman: Someone on board their ship threw a bag in the ocean?

This was my thought also.

The plastic bag floating near the Titanic probably floated to its location on the Gulf Stream, the strong, warm-water current that flows northward along the U.S. East Coast after being blown off the crew's lunch table, Gallo said.

Barakku ha, I have a postcard with the exact same picture of an otter on it! It says "you otter be here" and is from Alaska. Truly important to the discussion at hand, I know.

I'm thinking the hips and knees would sink but I could be wrong.

Near Antarctica, another worry is that those bits of plastic could harbor microbes or other life that isn't native to the southernmost continent and its environs. These hitchhikers could establish themselves on the continent or the islands around it and potentially become invasive species, pushing out natives.

Nobody better tell him about driftwood. He'll freak the fark out.

The plastic bag is another example of how man's trash is lurking across the oceans and even floating near invaluable historical sites, such as the site of the Titanic shipwreck,

And of course they don't even consider the idea that the bag flew off their own ship.

So, a plastic bag in the ocean is terrible, but thousands of tons of discarded steel on the ocean floor is OK?

Just because no one would give two cents for them does not make them invaluable.

Aren't artificial joints made of titanium and stuff?

museum curator need to flock to this magical place in the pacific. because all their plastic pieces kept in controlled environment are turning to dust.

One plastic bag is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to trash.
