Let`s see... 4,800 items thrown in the ocean @ $175 per incident for the littering fee... I`d say this amiable gentleman is due about $840,000 in littering fines.

I keed, I keed....

"BBC really made this into a news story! lol" It`s not really a news story, it`s in the magazine section. BBC is not just for news, they have all kinds of different stories and things.

Wow, thanks for throwing all that trash into our oceans. Because there is certainly not enough bits of plastic for fish to ingest, and god knows the ocean is the worlds dumping site.
