UFOs

This Economist article explores the impact of floating shipping containers which have fallen off ships and pose a hazard to shipping. They have resulted in collisions with sailing boats, which is quite a slim chance I would have thought considering the size of the ocean they are floating in... but happens quite regularly, suggesting there are quite a few of them out there. Some of them were famous, such as the one carrying the friendly floatees which I have blogged about several times previously.
