Pacific Ocean — Forget the Eiffel Tower or The Great Pyramids. Today’s greatest man-made wonder is the giant trash pile floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Measuring twice the size of Texas, this monument to man is now the greatest tourist destination in the world.
Individuals from all over flock to tour the 8th wonder. There are no visa requirements to visit the giant trash pile as no country will claim ownership or responsibility for the mass, which makes this one of the most affordable vacations you can take.
This was truly a community effort and marks the only time the entire world has worked together to achieve anything. In fact, many of the world’s citizens contributed to construction without realizing it.
By throwing plastic, Styrofoam, and freezers in our local rivers, these were quickly swept out to sea to begin the marvelous journey. Eventually, thanks to the tides, the world’s refuse bonded together and a wonder was born.
International shipping played their part as well, often dumping trash straight into the ocean. A little known fact, the trash pile is home to one of the most interesting graveyards that features many of the crew from the Titanic and Amelia Earhart. Construction took years and is currently on-going.
There is plenty to tour on the giant trash pile. On the Eastern border lies the mysterious whale carcass. How did it die? Is it really trash? Visit and chisel your initials into its dead flesh.
For lunch, visit Northtown, a quaint little village of locals upwind from the whale carcass. They use locally sourced ingredients to create some of the best typhoids in existence. Take some home with you for a nice souvenir.
There is plenty and see and do on the world’s largest trash pile. However, the southern side of the mass has been taken over by p*ssed off dolphins and it is recommended that visitors stay away from this area unless they are fluent in ocean kung-fu. While you visit the island, it is also appreciated that you take none of it home as a keepsake.
Let’s keep this natural wonder pristine for the next generation to enjoy and ignore what it might mean for their future.
