No, not your old flame, vacuum cleaner for coral reefs.

Very cool idea. Hope it helps.

Wow. While I think that vacuuming sucks, this would be a fun job. Getting to play in the water and help the coral reef? Sign me up!

Pollution from fertilizers contributes to the overgrowth of seaweed, so they suck it up and use the seaweed to make more fertilizer? I guess as long as that guy on the bottom is not resting on the reef and the fish can keep the freshly vacuumed corals clean, it's good though.

In a related story and related thread, just over the weekend the Chinese announced that they have successfully cleaned out all that algae from the rowing etc. venues. There it was algae mostly on the surface, and they scooped it out of the water from boats.

Imigo, I want some of whatever-the-hell you're smoking to have dreams like that!!

I guess you saw this thread before the other one, and you liked this one so much, it made the other one even worse by comparison. That's life, I guess.
But to reply to your comment, GD: I occasionally buy a single cigarillo like at a gas station. (Not generally recommended [/disclaimer], but not the worst.) You would not believe how often I've been axed what I was going to put in it--more than several times by the gas station clerks themselves! Or did I need something to put in it.
But in every case, I'm like, "No, nothing. I smoke these straight."
Then they go, "Yeahhh, rriiiight." *Wink.
"No, I was a big pothead back in the day, but I haven't smoked since forever, since before you were born."
"No way. You're lying."
"No, really. When were you born?"
"Wow, 1987 [looking wistfully up into space]--those were the days. But I haven't smoked dope since way before that."
"Whoa. For real?"
"What do I got to do? Okay, turn off the security cameras, and I'll light up my little cigarillo right here in the store." (Big state offense, smoking in a public place!)
Anyway, as for that particular dream, GD, I had been listening to some Allman Joys (way pre-Allman Brothers) a couple days before, so maybe it took a couple nights to work its way into dreamworld. As for the drug part, I have dreams sorta like that 2-3 times a year. Usually, I realize I'm falling off the wagon, and sometimes I don't indulge, but usually I do. In this case, with that novel delivery system (fire extinguisher type thing) being aimed at me,I felt I practically couldn't stop it.
I feel I'll eventually cut out cigarillos totally, like I did with reefer--even if it means cigarillos will start haunting my dreams. Dreams of Groucho Marx and Winston Churchill.
