    Latestly? haha I actually tried to find the original source, how did I choose this out of 5,000 Google News sources? Sorry, Sven, and board pplz...

    World’s oldest message in a bottle came from a Dutch jenever distillery


    I like this article. It's from a Dutch newspaper, so of course, the focus is on the Dutch bottle, not the message! :| lol Cool tho, gives a little more background info you guys may find interesting. :p

    ALSO, error in this article...yikes..what's up with journalism these days!!

    Between 1964 and 1933 should read 1864 and 1933.

    Good job, editors! :D
