    This isn't going to help the "Dirty Jersey" reputation!

    I'm more worried about getting shacked and then coming out worse than a voodoo doll.

    I have on 1 or 2 occasions seen this first hand in OC Maryland as well. It makes you wonder what else is in the water. Several times I have seen dental floss and other items which I figured were flushed down someone's toilet, discharged, and then floated back to the beach.

    ya i was on the beach the day it happened it was really weird the beach tag checkers were saying that weird stuff was washing up like needles then right when i got in the water they closed down the beach. Then on sunday, when they said it was safe to go back in the water, i went surfing on 21st and when i came home i turned the radio on and they said more had washed up right after i left.

    Supposedly the NJ Attorney General is offering a $10,000 reward for someone who can rat on the person/company responsible for this waste.
