Getting messages are so common nowadays as we receive them daily through our cellphones, web messengers & other gadgets.
Don't you sometimes wish it could be more thrilling? Sometimes I imagine myself staring into the vastness of the ocean, and spotting a mysterious floating bottle along the way.... like the universe itself has something to tell me!
These 10 Mysterious Message in a Bottle tattoos will take you back to old school and will bring back the magic in receiving messages from the unknown! Who would you wish these messages came from?
Messages long ago were sealed in a waterproof vessel that floats (particularly a glass bottle) and were used by the navy as far back as the 16th century. The english navy used to send bottled messages ashore to send information about enemy positions.
Back in June 10, 1914, 1,890 bottles were cast into the ocean by a scientist from the Glasgow School of Navigation to test the undercurrents in the seas around Scotland. One of the bottles were recovered in 2012, and was confirmed by the Guinness World Records to be the oldest message in a bottle ever found----which is 98 years old!
Recently in April this year, a 108-year-old bottle was recovered. It was one of the 1,020 bottles released into the North Sea between 1904 & 1906 by former association president George Parker Bidder III. Bidder was conducting a research that proved the flow of East-to-West currents in the North sea. The Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom in Plymouth have already reported to Guinness World Records to verify the new record.
