Relax. It's just an inferiority complex. After all.... who was it that maintained a colonial hold on a vast percentage of the planet, and had, by 1947, lost 90% of it?

•At least they are the best of contemporary allies

•They brought us the Beatles (but balanced it by bringing the world that trash band we had to endure last night, 37 years after the end of the Beatles)

•AND, they assist in creating an entire export market for dental products.


(plus, without them, the 1814 redecoration of the White House would never have been)

I agree... the ocean is already getting a hefty share of the trash we produce.

Does putting a thing in the ocean necessarily make that thing trash?

Not if it is found and disposed of properly. <G>

The sender should have responded with a facetious retort on how thankful they were that someone had gone out of their way to pick up the litter of another.

Okay, who thinks the Brit actually has the same last name as Dr. Evil's cat? I think somebody was jerking Harvey Bennett's chain.

This latest episode involved chucking five plastic bottles into the ocean. Previously though he had been told off as he used to throw glass bottles in and a local woman had objected when she saw him doing it so was she sanctimonious as well? Or is he just a serial litter lout?

The women in England was a little preachy is all. She had not the info you do to go by. Anyone seeing someone throw a high number in is a different case.
