Is she on Fark? Cause that would win a CSBS thread.

...the USB worked...

You really shouldn't put just plug any old crap into your computer.

...it was only last week NIWA revealed in a blog post that when they'd defrosted this particular sample, an unexpected item had appeared: a USB stick.

It would have been something if the USB stick had photos of the guy from NIWA's wife and her boyfriend.

Offline, one researcher who watched the video said, "It was the shiattiest thing I've ever seen!"

Am I the only one giving this story the side eye?

So it belonged to the woman who collected the poop it was in.

Yeah.

Now I'm thinking it was dropped into the sample bag, perhaps on accident, but a cynical part of me thinks it might have been on purpose.

No, they said it was in a seal not on a porpoise.

"Incredibly, it turns out she was the very volunteer who found the scat sample and sent it to NIWA in the first place, completely unaware her USB was in it."

This story is complete bullshiat
