I continue to be horrified by my own observations. In a typical day's sail one sees refuse every mile or so, and that's just within a strip maybe 100 m wide and only those objects that show clearly on the surface. Averaged over the oceans shows that mankind is really messing up the planet.

Of course, a MOB takes a lot of man-made fabric with him, so maybe its still worth getting back on board.
