• Dutch Pony Spill Now Being Used for Science!


    Last week we posted about a container ship dumping ponies into the ocean. Apparently these guys are so recognizable, that the scientific community is now using them to study how plastic trash in the ocean travels. It's still not completely known how quick it takes stuff like this to sink, and having brightly colored equines makes studying stuff like that much easier.

    I guess pollution has a good side... in combating pollution! Yay?

    Thanks to Lucas for the heads up.
