Did you hear about the message in a bottle [Yahoo! Buzz] that made a trip across the Atlantic Ocean over 16 months, spanning from Florida to the Emerald Isle in Ireland? “Last year, a high school student named Corey Swearingen put a letter in a bottle, sealed it up, and dropped it in the Atlantic Ocean, off the Florida coast. It was kind of an experiment for school. In the letter, he appealed to whomever came across the bottle to contact him and let him know where in the world it showed up.” That is a pretty cool form of communication!
