I had to bring this photo to you. This is a rubber ducky of epic proportions. I saw photos of this giant duck from a few different angles so if it *is* a photoshop job, it’s the most elaborate photochop job ever.
Seeing this giant rubber ducky balloon, I quickly followed the logical train of thought and started thinking how great it would be if the ducky were actually sea worthy. It looks like this particular duck is a giant balloon similar to what you see in the Macy’s day parade. Big balloon doesn’t work for me. I’m looking for a 250 foot duck made with rubber 3 feet thick. The giant rubber ducky will have just enough weight in the bottom that the ducky will ‘weeble in the ocean but it wont fall down’.
Now building a giant rubber ducky, capable of floating across the Atlantic would be awesome but it would be completely useless if we didn’t go all the way by dragging it out to the middle of the ocean and letting the giant duck float it’s way around the world.
If we’re going through all the trouble to make one of these giant rubber duckies, we might as well make a dozen of them. We will tow a dozen giant rubber duckies out to the middle of the ocean and let them float away. Meteorologists can place wagers on where the ducks wash up on shore and how long it it will take. I’m sure the scientific value is huge and compared to the price of some new piece of technology it’s fairly inexpensive plus, the ducky data will be true to life accurate.
