While this trash gets points for buoyancy (I mean, look at those lightweight items floatin’ around in that little puddle), it fails to generate the magnitude of a full-fledged pile of garbage. It’s like when someone tries to coordinate a flash mob, and only one of their friends shows up to participate. It’s just sad and a little desperate.
