Title: G3.5 fakies storming the beach [merged]
Post by: lonewolf on January 03, 2019, 05:15:26 AM
So apparently a container ship lost 30 containers into the ocean near the Netherlands, and now the merchandise is washing up on the beach, including these G3.5 fakie brushables:

Definitely brightens the place up. :P

Edit: Apparently the ship lost 270 containers out of 19,000 according to the source:

Everybody who wants to find a fakie truly in the wild, pack your bags and head to the Netherlands!

Omg xD It's at Terschelling though. Too far away for me haha.

Wow... just read that they actually lost 270 containers! :shocked: Also with dangerous materials...
That area is already a protected environment. I hope they can clean it up

The Red Bull is vanquished again... run free!

                    :huh:>>>No oceans in town, just rivers, one trip I bagged a toy cop car & a little armored car (must have been a story behind that one), and one really realistic giant rubber snake that was stuffed with polyester fiber which I carried home on my shoulders... I had thought the neighbors might be surprised to see me in the distance as I rounded the corner home, but believe me or not, it was the dogs who went wild!
Bagging litter can be fun & hazardous, & toys do sail.... alas I have never found ponies but I will have to write back 17 years from now (I've heard message bottles can float that long) if I'm near an ocean somewhere and one turns up. That day also found a lockable plastic tub from the Walgreens round the bend, asked them if I could take the container home and reuse to lock up my garden tools but they've a policy against this they actually accepted it back and inventoried... dripping as it was and smelling of fish! How strange for the employees... :lookround:

This happened a few years back with a container full of Lego's, I think I'd rather step on a pony on a beach...

Evidently from a cargo ship spilling containers in The Netherlands.

I came here just to post this, I thought I finally had something interesting to post! :|

Never mind, I'll see myself out. :lookround:

EDIT: Now I see how not nice this post sounds... Just to clarify; it was aimed at myself, not at anyone in this thread! I was just disappointed in myself that I waited too long and as a result someone beat me to it. I really never have anything interesting to post. Now I still don't. :P

Found two more amusing photos. :P

(I have absolutely no clue about social media etiquette since I don't use it myself, so I hope I didn't do anything wrong by sharing it this way? I just took some screenshots and left the names in it for the credits.)

"The sea takes. The sea gives. 30 Containers on Terschelling, Vlieland and Schier with Ikea wares, My Little Pony and car parts. The islanders are happy."

Also, I edited my previous post in this thread to clarify that I wasn't being snotty to anyone else but myself. :lookround:

     UPDATE: it would seem scientists are able to use the pony spill to their advantage in studying how plastic travels in the ocean.

Article: https://nos.nl/artikel/2266516-dobberende-my-little-pony-s-in-noordzee-bieden-kansen-voor-wetenschap.html

It is written in (what I think) is Dutch. I just used google translate because I can’t speak it.

Yup, that's what it says! Especially this line amuses me:

"Dan kunnen we achterhalen hoe lang het duurt voordat een My Little Pony water maakt en zinkt", vertelt hij. "En dan krijgt dit ongeluk met de MSC Zoe misschien nog een zilveren randje."

("Then we can find out how long it takes before a My Little Pony makes water* and sinks", he says. "And then this accident with the MSC Zoe might get a silver lining.")

*No idea if watermaken/making water is some kind of nautical expression? It sounds funny in this context anyway. :P

'Watermaken' is basically sinking, right? But yes, it's kind of a weird word :P

Saw the fakies in the news a few days ago. Its so sad what happened, I hope they will be able to retrieve the containers from the sea before the dangerous stuff finds a way out of them!

Ever have one of those dreams where it tricks you into thinking you just dreamed of finding G1 ponies all over the thrift store and then woke up and then you really find G1 ponies all over the thrift store, then wake up...?
