    I could work it in, but I wouldn't have a leg to stand on....

    I'm no expert in police work, but given the sneaker this may end up being a case of athlete's foot.

    Potentially related - I know a farmer up there who just lost a calf.

    They have a pretty good idea............ But dont want to guess prematurely. Nothing like adressing the public incorrectly and being left with FOOT IN MOUTH? :rofl:

    Well I have questions about this too, IMO mine are a little more on the practical side...

    Wonder if the fish are starting to key in on the Nike hatch?

    What size hook for a size 12 sneaker? Hm... (rummages through boxes of materials looking for a good color match for a Nike swoosh)

    Too soon? :D

    Many assume it happened nearby but officials agree they could have drifted 1,000 miles based on the decomposition level and the fact that the bones seperated on their own. My guess is they are stow-aways/immigrants tossed overboard further out at sea... I always assumed mafia until I learned the bones weren't cut/chopped but just naturally seperated in the decomposition process.

    No way. That would be over 5280000 feet.

    Assuming the sneaker was still tied upon arrival, I guess it drifted at one knot.

    You guys are being callous. At the heart of all this is the horrible fate of the victim. Assuming the Canadian officials eventually determine the country of origin of said victim, and it's not Canada, who's going to foot the bill for the investigation?

    You're absolutely right. I feel like such a heel.

    It takes a big man to admit when he's wrong, and you've stepped up. A person's true character is revealed not in victory, but in defeet.

    Lucky it didn't wash up on a beach in New Guinea, some tribes might serve it as fillet of sole.
