    Can you please put in a link to that simulator? I want to see what would happen if I dropped a message in a bottle where I live.

    I have found 3 messages in bottles in my life, all by accident when randomly looking down at just the right moment.

    1 from Canada, 1 from Florida, 1 from Ireland washed up in Scotland, I never go to beaches anymore, I imagine if I started looking on beaches I would find bottles with letters and USB memory sticks in them nowadays..

    How do you keep a bottle from washing back up on the beach you tossed it from?

    These people met cause of a message in a bottle and it's largely thanks to one guy - STING

    That's awesome, I've been throwing trash into the ocean for years and the only one who ever writes back is the government with a fancy seas letter.

    White people have time and <<>> to track messages in bottles.... Where I'm from, such liberties are unimaginable for 99.9% of us. Cool video though. Wish I could track the origin of all the trash on my beaches and send it back over.
