When Thousands of Rubber Ducks Were Accidentally Dumped into the Ocean


♪♪ JANUARY 10, 1992. A CONTAINER SHIP TRAVELING
FROM HONG KONG TO TACOMA, WASHINGTON, LOSES 12 CONTAINERS OVERBOARD. ONE OF THEM SETS LOOSE THOUSANDS OF TINY,
YELLOW, PLASTIC DUCKS ON THE CURRENTS
OF THE NORTH PACIFIC. Narrator:
THE CURRENTS CARRY THE DUCKS
ALL OVER THE WORLD. SO, MONTHS LATER,
THEY START WASHING UP ON THE COAST OF ALASKA, TURNING THIS TOY SPILL
INTO AN ACCIDENTAL EXPERIMENT. SO, FROM THE DUCKY STUDY, YOU GET REAL-TIME DATA ABOUT THE CURRENTS
IN THE NORTH PACIFIC. Narrator:
THE ACCIDENTAL DUCK EXPERIMENT IS STILL PROVIDING INFORMATION
TODAY. THEY’RE ALMOST INDESTRUCTIBLE. I MEAN, LITERALLY 20 YEARS
AFTER THEY HIT THE OCEAN, THEY’RE STILL WASHING UP
ON BEACHES AROUND THE WORLD.

  1. This Man Just Wanted To See If His Wife
    Was Deaf. But He Didn't Expect This.
    Fred feared his wife Rhonda wasn't hearing as
    well as she used to and he thought she might
    need a hearing aid.
    Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the
    family Doctor to discuss the problem.
    The Doctor told him there is a simple informal
    test the husband could perform to give the Doctor
    a better idea about her hearing loss.
    'Here's what you do,' said the Doctor, 'stand
    about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal
    conversational speaking tone see if she hears you.
    If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until
    you get a response."
    That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking
    dinner, and he was In the den. He says to himself,
    'I'm about 40 feet away, let's see what happens.!
    Then in a normal tone he asks, "Honey, what's for
    dinner?
    No response.
    So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about
    30 feet from his wife and repeats, 'Rhonda, what's
    for dinner?" Still no response.
    Next he moves into the dining room where he is
    about 20 feet from his Wife and asks, 'Honey,
    what's for dinner?"
    A gain he gets no response.
    So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet
    away. 'Honey, what's for dinner?'
    Again there is no response..
    So he walks right up behind her. 'Rhonda, what's
    for dinner?"
    'Damn it, Fred, for the FIFTH time chiken
