"Thousands of rubber ducks to land on British shores after 15 year journey" (c)

Не бойтесь же: вы лучше многих воробьев. (Св. Евангелие от Матфея, 10:31)

Found this information in Elruu's journal) As I'm a huge rubber duck fan... *points up* ...I just can't help sharing)


"10 JANUARY 1992: Somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean nearly 29,000 First Years bath toys, including bright yellow rubber ducks, are spilled from a cargo ship in the PacificOcean."

"When several containers of children's bathtub toys spilled over a ship's side and were released into the Pacific Ocean, who would've thought a concerted research project to study the ocean's currents would be the result?"

"The armada of 29,000 plastic yellow ducks, blue turtles and green frogs broke free from a cargo ship 15 years ago. Since then they have travelled 17,000 miles, floating over the site where the Titanic sank, landing in Hawaii and even spending years frozen in an Arctic ice pack. And now they are heading straight for Britain. At some point this summer they are expected to be spotted on beaches in South-West England."


From here:




And you, guys?) Do you like rubber ducks? ;)

Darling, it's funny you've mentioned rubber ducks because we've just brought one from Amsterdam in full bdsm gear, with ball-gag in his... well, beak, and in leathers. You should come over some time and see this masterpiece)
We haven't seen you for a long time, after all)

bet on both sides | do what you must
_Francis_, :D I hope THAT one won''t be swimming free, "innocent bystanders" just could die from shock ))

Great idea, BTW )))

Чиффа. Although it says in the manual that our ducky is waterproof and should float quite well we have not tried it yet. The existence of batteries inside its belly (for vibration) gives me doubts. I am very afraid that innocent «byswimmers» can die from electric shock as well as nervous one))

_Derek_, yes, I second it. I too would be cautious about putting anything with batteries in water. It will be a pity if it breaks, really... :D
But I think for innocents nervous would be first. In "big water" they first will see it and only some time after - feel.
