More big stuff : a load of garbage...

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, also described as the Eastern Garbage Patch or the Pacific Trash Vortex is an area of marine debris in the central North Pacific Ocean located roughly in an area between 135 to 155W and 35 to 42N. The patch is characterised by exceptionally high concentrations of suspended plastic and other debris that have been trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre....The size of the affected region is unknown, but estimates range from 700,000 km2 to more than 15 million km2.

I know a chap who went on a NOAA cruise to this region earlier this year as part of a project testing the use of small UAVs for this sort of survey work.  One of the best anecdotes from the cruise was when, during some particularly bad weather, he rigged up the UAV's accelerometers to show the boat's motion, which nicely correlated with how badly sea-sick everyone was feeling.

A Devon fish and chip shop owner has broken the world record for cooking the biggest bag of chips.
Kelvin Baines from the Chip Stop in Plymouth undertook a 12-hour marathon and fried up almost 1,300lb (590kg) of Maris Piper potatoes.
