as for the pics of the birds, i really think all those bottle caps would blow away. i mean half the bird rotted and blew away, why did the caps stay.
You got to be kidding right? If you are trying to be sarcastic you can put a /sarcasm after
a joke or sarcastic remark...if you are not joking then I pity your ignorance (on second thought maybe ignorance is bliss for you...not the rest of us though.)

Marine Debris Program - Funding Opportunities

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that human's incredible lust for plastic is having an effect on the ocean. Imagine 6 billion people and all their plastic, about 10 % of which ends up in the ocean. Have you ever been to a third world country? If so you know the garbage is littered every where and then eventually gets flushed into the ocean. Americans aren't much better and the volume of consumption is staggering. Did you drink from a plastic water bottle recently?

"The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labours hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective". -- Henry David Thoreau
