The article is a bit wordy when it could be summed up "Litter bug found after 30 years"

:-P

Poor Skylar Mae or Mae not grow up to hate that name.

Pam Stanfield said her husband, Daniel, and daughter, Skylar Mae, were treasure hunting on the shore of Open Lake, near Ripley, Tenn., after recent flooding when they discovered the bottle with a message inside.

That's a nice term for scavenging.

After a past, similar thread I purchased the movie Paddle to the Sea on DVD. I remembered it from grade school and had fun showing it to my kids.

I doubt this bottle's journey was quite as entertaining.

That was a great star trek episode.  Daniel Davis is an amazing actor. "Ship in a bottle"

It was probably in the bed of a pickup most of the time.

Every bit of water from the Green River (RIP John Prine) to Ripley is prone to flooding, no telling how many places in various woods and swamps that bottle has spent time in.

What most people dont realize is the themes recently explored in dark and edgy shows like Black Mirror, Westworld and movies like Prometheus were already explored in STNG. Things like the idea that life is a simulation, the ethics of android sex, using AI as labor, the idea that humanoid life was planted by aliens. They did all that stuff in a network TV medium in 40 minute episodes with no nudity, limited special effects and major language restrictions. Before the internet.

that is akshully a really good point.  i just came to say: 'message takes over 30 years to travel from A to B", and
some things that should not have been forgotten, were lost.

That is cool. I would love to find one. With my luck, I would find one asking for help from 40 years ago. Oh well.
