Afloat on the seas of fate (and on the actual sea) for a century, a message in a bottle released from Plymouth, England, has finally washed up in Amrum, an island off the coast of Germany.
A retired German post office worker has found a message in a bottle that was launched into the sea at the start of the 20th Century.
The man who dropped the bottle in the sea over a century ago was marine biologist, George Parker Bidder who released over 1,020 such bottles between 1904 and 1906.
Parker Bidder, who worked at the Marine Biological Association (MBA) in Plymouth, was using the bottles to test deep sea currents. These bottles were specially designed to float just above the sea bed.
Once officially confirmed, this will apparently be the oldest verified message-in-a-bottle, at 108 years.
If you're unimpressed by the distance traveled, another bottle got from England to Australia—in only 17 months.

Even after months of working from home, you’d be forgiven for thinking the whole experience still doesn’t quite feel…well, normal. In addition to all the obvious environmental changes of handling your 9 to 5 from your den or dining room table, the technological aids you didn’t realize you loved back at the office probably don’t […]
Running a small business drops a lot on to the plate of just one person. And between juggling a dozen tasks that need to get handled daily, it’s no surprise that there are a dozen more equally vital tasks that can just as easily go overlooked. While posting to social channels and making web posts […]
