500,000 th Bottle: Who Will it Be??

Hello Oceangrammers!

The beach where I am right now says:

Now I know it's probably not completely accurate. You must refresh the browser to get a new total, and I'm sure there must be more than one bottle thrown at the same instant all over the world. But the numbers are changing fast. This morning I was trying to watch for 400,000 but that number passed quickly!

Keep an eye out! I want to see "500,000 bottles thrown" on somebody's beach!

To save the picture:
1. Hit the "print scr" key on your keyboard (nothing will happen yet)
2. Go into a graphics program (such as Paint)
3. Click "edit" and "paste".
4. Save and viola!

Send me those pictures. I want to see it! Who will it be?? Maybe me?

Have fun!


P.S. Here's the message in that bottle, if you wondered:

I got a #500,000 message tonight. I couldn't find your e-mail address, so I just made a smaller jpg version of it and uploaded it to Imageshack:

It was a nice one :) I replied with a thanks, and said that it was *my* 500,000th message.

I got it around 1:40 a.m. EST on 8/13/06
