That's where the seagulls congregate and come up with plans on how to dominate the world from the skies where nobody would expect it.
Give it to singapore, we can build land with it...
and people say climate problems are not important
Why can't we dump it all into a volcano or something clever like that.
Because that would be a lot of effort to waste since people will bitch about doing that.
unregulated burning of garbage = toxic gases/chemicals released into air/water
We should sell our groceries in delicious edible bags.
Is that any worse than the unregulated trash collection in our oceans?
Heck, we might start a new ecosystem down there or something. Underwater cockroaches.
Dammit. I was trying to find a Futurama picture from "A Big Piece of Garbage" but had no luck. I don't even know where my futurama discs disappeared to.
The image where the mayor of old new york secretly pushes off the garbage pile to the ocean.
WTF, that is truly disgusting looking. D:
I think it's cool. It reminds me of those cockroaches that carry around the brain bug in Starship Troopers.
I love that scene, I forgot how awesome that movie is.. I should buy it.
agree, that movie was way underrated, it was pretty decent for what it was.
anyway i was saying more than a year ago there are other things besides global warming that are dangerous.
but of course who cares unless a giant trash wave hits them.
Finally, we now have an excuse to repeal the above-ground nuclear test treaty.
As with most problems, a giant floating garbage heap could be solved by a nice 20 megaton thermonuclear airburst.
God bless America.
*avoids flying chairs*
Satellite pics or it didn't happen.
search for sat pics couldnt find them
I don't think I ever threw anything in the water, in the street yeah but not in the sea..
Well how big is Texas anyway ?
2.3 times smaller than Alaska.
Or if you prefer it another way... 10 times the size of Florida.
And if you prefer it even another way... 1.4 billion square feet.
And in meters ?
W00t, free shoes!
I like the volcano/ land idea. Though land may have 'unforeseen consequences'. Volcano would have to be limited maybe... putting texas in there and all.
Give it to Singpura, they need land.
Are you sure about the stats on that? Texas is pretty big. Twice the size of Texas would pretty much cover all of Europe.
Guys, I say we claim it.
I want to see more pics - I'm leery about this. If it's actually anywhere near as big as Texas, it'll get my vote for a new wonder of the world.
Texas is small compared to the ocean though.
All you want to know.
It is entirely too strange though that I can't find any pics that show an expanse of water from a boat or something...
EDIT: Found this video on wikipedia.
Yikes... Surprising. So I guess the reason we're not seeing pictures of some thick mass of plastics is because most of it is broken down and sort of hides in the water as a soupy sludge.
just look a map
So how do we use it again?
Separate names with a comma.
