Extra Foamy

A Starbucks latte option is 'extra foam.' It makes your drink more like a cappuccino, but with out the cinnamon.

The folks at Yamba, Australia, near Sydney had foam with their water recently. In fact, their whole beach and many of the nearby buildings were swallowed by the stuff.


The foam, light as bubble bath foam, stretched 30 miles out into the Pacific Ocean
It was created by just the right combination of salts, chemicals, dead plants, decomposed fish and seaweed churned up by powerful currents.


Storms off the New South Wales Coast and further north off Queensland created a huge disturbance in the ocean, hitting a stretch of water where there was a particularly high amount of the substances which formed into bubbles.

Ask the kid how his mouth tastes after swimming in river/ocean runoff from the hinterland drainage.
Ask him about how the dirt stuck to his skin after the foam dried and about the rash that he got from contact with his skin.
Looks fun, but tastes like gutter.
