Reef made of condoms

A huge floating reef made up of millions of disposed condoms
has been discovered in the mid Pacific. The condom mass is
two miles long, up to sixty feet deep, and in places so
tightly compressed that a small plane could be landed on it.
The mass was discovered by the Australian Oceanographic
Laboratory Outpost on Macquarie Island in the South Pacific.
Scientists there explained that the accumulation, which
consists almost exclusively of condoms, is explained by a
principle of physics called 'like aggregation.' Like
aggregation is caused by the massing of similar objects due
to ocean currents and winds, the response of the objects to
the earth's magnetic field, and other factors.
The tendency of dust to clump and mass in a house or under a
bed is explained by the same principle.
The Australian scientists are mapping the reef by satellite
because it is a serious marine hazard. The world disposes of
an estimated 300 million condoms a year."

isn't it funny!

i've read conflicting versions of this story. some say it's myth, some refute the myth. it's a wild and reasonalbe thought that like attracts like.

when i was kid growing up at the beach i didn't quite understand that "personal hygeine products" washed up from cruise ships. i just thought that people were going to the beach to... blech.
