You never know: maybe this could be a GOOD thing?
Surely there’s some gold coins or a yen or two included in here somewhere…
Up to 20 million tons of debris from Japan’s tsunami moving toward Hawaii
Some 5 to 20 million tons of debris–furniture, fishing boats, refrigerators–sucked into the Pacific Ocean in the wake of Japan’s March 11 earthquake and tsunami are moving rapidly across the Pacific. Researchers from the University of Hawaii tracking the wreckage estimate it could approach the U.S. West Coast in the next three years, the UK Daily Mail reports.
“We have a rough estimate of 5 to 20 million tons of debris coming from Japan,” University of Hawaii researcher Jan Hafner told Hawaii’s ABC affiliate KBBV.
Crew members from the Russian training ship the STS Pallada “spotted the debris 2,000 miles from Japan,” last month after passing the Midway islands, the Mail wrote, ”They saw some pieces of furniture, some appliances, anything that can float, and they picked up a fishing boat,” said Hafner. The boat was 20-feet long, and was painted with the word “Fukushima.” ”That’s actually our first confirmed report of tsunami debris.”
I could use a fishing boat…to sell on Craigslist anyway.
In fact, I could use a lot of stuff to sell on Craigslist…
People are nuts. They’ll buy anything. And put them in a competitive bidding situation? They’ll REALLY buy anything.
Maybe a little site called “Tsunami Treasures” or maybe “Fukushima Flotsam” and I can continue to pay the rent for a few months? Hmmm…
