No way do I put plastic into the Gulf. Only aluminum cans and glass bottles, properly sunk. Aluminum is not toxic; it is the third most prevalent element in the Earth. Silicon (major component of glass) and oxygen being the most prevalent elements. In my experience solid objects start to grow barnacles within a few days. Eventually other things (corals for example) build on any solid object.

Well, if you won't listen to your own wife I guess you won't listen to anyone here. What exactly was the point in your original question?

Solid objects do grow stuff on them but small stuff like that is not going to stay still. To me thats just being lazy and not wanting to properly throw your trash away. Glass bottles especially if they break could actually hurt someone.

Yes eventually it will round off but not right away. Also 5000 beer bottles are not going to just collect and make a reef.

I have found it a lot better to listen to my wife than to contradict her. However, why not do some good with solid objects rather than send them to a land fill where they are of no benefit to anyone? Also, we are not talking about close to the beach.

So it's better to put that crap in the ocean than in a landfill? Well then heck, let's take all the bottles and cans that would go to a landfill and dump them at sea, if what you are doing is a good thing then just think how much good all that garbage would be!
