    It seems that the country of origin can be identified by the length.

    I heard that China is researching the possibility of colonizing this island to forestall overpopulation there. Isn't that ironic?

    That's mostly because it can clog your toilet. Once they get to the sewage treatment plant, they get filtered out along with all the other large stuff that people flush :yuck: and sent off to landfills.

    I've been trying to decide since I saw this posted last night if Ivan really thought it was true, or if he forgot to log off Tsu's computer again and she posted it to be funny. :rofl:

    Of course it's true. They explained it scientifically. They said "like aggregation",and refered to ocean currents and the earth's magnetic field. These are clearly words of authority!

    AND it was on the Internet. How much more proof do you need?

    No, that was me. :biggrin:

    I wasn't sure what to think. At least one legitimate news service carried the story.

    Dare I ask? Which one?
