Hey Archy,I think you should start your own Web page.You find the most interesting topics out there.
thanks for the suggestion, but I prefer to post such things as this here to reach a broader audience that would not necessarily look at such issues on the giant content of the interweb. I think as surfers such topics may be of interest since it relates to the ocean environment.
In the late 80's the navy thought it would be a good idea to sink a giant electromagnet off the NC coast. I was coming back from the Eastern Shore of Va and saw it being towed out by a frigate. it looked like a row boat towing a house. I was surfing Duck Pier that weekend and a sea turtle rose up beside me in the line up, let out a moan, rolled it's eyes and sank back down. Mission Accomplished, I reckon.
