Just leave it all where it washes up and someone will find a way to make money off it, which will then be made into a reality TV show, with chunky men in black shirts squabbling over the finds and bragging about how much money they make.

Kind of like Storage Wars.

Washington's departments of Ecology, Health, Fish and Wildlife, Military Emergency Management Division and Washington Parks and Recreation Commission, as well as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, are inspecting the 20-foot boat to determine if it was swept into the Pacific Ocean during the March 11, 2011 tsunami.

Does it really take all that personal to figure out if a god damnboat came from Japan? What's that consist of 1 person on a computer searching the registration and 10 watching?

Reminds me of a Japanese movie that scared the crap out of me as a kid back in the 60s.

It all starts on a Japanese ghost ship, found abandoned on the open seas.

Ahh yes the movie the inspired Gilligan's Island!

The characters in "Attack of the Mushroom People"

Millionaire
Female Movie Star
Ship Captain
First mate
College professor
Farm girl
Famous writer

drop the writer and ad "his wife" and the fact that the film played in Los Angeles about a year before Gilligan's Island was created and there can be no other conclusion but that Sherwood Schwartz got most of the idea for his creation from this movie!

dabbletech: Were they fishing for eers?


My guess is that this type of vessel is used to fish for swimsuit-wearing schoolgirls. The eels have a special sensory system to detect them in the water and they would propel the boat in the direction of the closest one.

Ohh, a Japanese fishing boat.

I was thinking of something much larger. Appropriate that it washed up on Cape Disappointment.

When I was a kid growing up in SoCal, we used to have this horror movie host named Seymour (Larry Vincent) who hated this movie with a passion, which is probably why when he lampooned it, the result was so damned funny. There was one skit about a band of singing mushrooms called "The Fun Guys" which gets me chuckling everytime I think about it. .

Here's Seymour Link

You know, there are a lot of science/math nerds out there tracking all of this debris. Reason being, that they can make use of this data to chart currents, tides, and such...

I am not mocking this. Not at all. I'm just saying that every time a piece of debris washes up, and we know where it came from, it actually helps scientists who are tracking these things.
 
2012-06-18 04:03:41 PM  
Paint the debris up like whales. The Japs will harpoon that shiat and drag it back home.

Yeah, I know the expert said the thing is worth like a million dollars in salvage, but I've got overhead at hte shop here, and I'm gonna have to set on it a while before selling it, I'll give you $50 for it.

So it's a ghost boat, is what you're saying? Or that it was drifting around the sea of it's own accord?

This just gets worse by the minute.

"Reports began to come in at around 3 p.m. of a boat with Japanese writing on it washing ashore"

They 'write' all the boat markings now? I would have called it 'text' or perhaps 'Kanji' or 'Katakana' in order to be accurate. And I'm far from being any kind of PAID WRITER... Can I have this dude's job?
