It makes sense Space Force would have a turtle expert.
Somebody had to keep an eye on the Great A'Tuin.
A member of the newly inaugurated US Space Force discovered more than she bargained for as she conducted a survey of turtle nests on the coast around Cape Canaveral last month. Angy Chambers, a civil engineer and wildlife manager with the 45th Civil Engineer Squadron, was forced to suspend her check on testudinal housing …
Just a few miles up the road from me, 4 or 5 at most, turltey is *exactly how they pronounce totally. Now, if you are unfamiliar that branch of the Geordie dialect and are visiting the area, if you are being offered "turd in the hurl", just try to remember it's actually a quite nice sausage and Yorkshire Pudding comb and not a method of flinging shit around.
I doubt the packages were intentionally thrown overboard (jetsam) so they must be flotsam. The discoverer cannot simply do whatever she wants with flotsam. If someone can demonstrate they are the original owner then they retain ownership. The 45th Civil Engineer Squadron should have given the original own the opportunity to claim the packages and supply proof of ownership such as a receipt.
You jest, but there have been cases where buyers have reported lost/not delivered/counterfeit/adulterated product to the plod.
And there were also cases where the plod has advertised "Surrender anything illegal, no repercussions, amnesty and all that, one day only!", and I can't help but wonder what happens when someone comes early/late to drop off.
At Dartmouth many students were making master keys to the college. So, at the beginning of one term they said, "all master keys can be turned in to the campus police - no questions asked. After the first month, if you were found in possession of a master key you would be separated from the college."
A visit to the campus police revealed a wast basket full of (shoddy) master keys. (Don't ask how I would know shoddy from good.) If you asked about the return policy they just pointed to the waste basket. No questions were asked.
