Can't believe they didn't tell us what's inside it. Sneakers? TVs? Iphones? Toothpaste? Baby bottles?

I gotta know!

It contains... 1,159 steel-belted car tires from China! Others lost in the same accident contained cyclone fencing, leather chairs and mattress pads.

News Release - MBARI teams with Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary to study effects of shipping containers lost at sea.

Thanks, Europaflyer! I didn't really think we would find out.

Now I can rest easy. Ah . . . tires. Of course.
