Hmmmm... Could we train it to eat oil sludge and pee gasoline?

'...four types of latex balloons, five different types of string, nine different types of soft plastic, four different types of hard plastic, a piece of carpet-like material, and two large tar balls.'

What are 'Items found in Charlie Sheen's underwear?'

There's an International Marine Debris Conference?

Who knew?

What do you bet some of the conferees are spending time exploring the sights of Hawaii instead?

Some of those objects included four types of latex balloons, five different types of string, nine different types of soft plastic, four different types of hard plastic, a piece of carpet-like material, and two large tar balls.

.... no golden rings? French Hens?

Some intern just got a thesis handed to him.

Yay, Jeff! I was hoping that was what, or to whom, your link was going to be. She's a hottie.

And *snork* @ Sandy!

Is anyone keeping track of what Kirstie Alley ingests ?

3 French Hens,
2 Turtle turds,
And a colonoscopy!

Sounds like recycling to me.

I've had dogs just like that.
Seriously, I never take a walk on the beach without taking a litter bag along. Everything plastic left on the beach goes into the bag. I may not be making much of a difference but we have turtles on that beach and I'd like to keep it that way.
My grandson ran into the Inland Waterway last year. Everywhere he went, I noted a smallish sea turtle about 6 to 8 feet away. It was apparently curious.
I was glad to see it.

My current wife and I were wadefishing near Palacios, TX, in water about waist deep, when a turtle poked its head up about ten feet away from her. She freaked. She thought it was a gator.
