Personalised USB Stick Discovered In Weirdest Location!

30th September 2019 | News | Billy Rooney

Even with the wildest of imaginations, it is a challenge to comprehend the story of how a USB has ended in the most bizarre of locations. Earlier this year, scientists in New Zealand made a truly astounding discovery after stumbling on a working personalised USB, while analysing leopard seal faeces. Yes, you heard us correct! At Flash UK, we go above and beyond to make sure your vision comes to life when creating your personalised USB stick, we just hope you aren’t ass careless with it as this owner.

A USB Story of Bizarre Proportions

Two employees from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) announced that they had come across the personalised USB stick, which still worked. Upon further investigation, they discovered that the flash drive contained footage of sea lions.

Such a discovery sparked international wonderment as to who owns this drive and for answers as to exactly how it ended up there. Personalised USB sticks certainly aren’t a staple food group of leopard seals’ diet, and members of NIWA soon voiced their concern over how the seal came to consume the drive.

 

 

How Did A Personalised USB Stick Wind Up Here?

The footage on the USB showed a person in a blue kayak filming two baby sea lions, leading many to question, who is the person that captured this footage? It turns out that the personalised USB belonged to a seal enthusiast, Amanda Nally. She was casually watching TV when she suddenly realised that the images and videos that were being shown in the report belonged to her. Nally lost her USB on Oreti Beach in New Zealand while she was busy inspecting a potentially sick leopard seal. 

At the time, Nally reported the sick seal to NIWA’s leopard seal hotline, suggesting that the mammal’s faeces should be sent for testing. The NIWA scientists agreed and, when the faeces were examined, Nally’s USB was found. It is believed that the leopard seal consumed a bird that had eaten Nally’s personalised USB drive.

The Pieces of the Puzzle Come Together

At this stage, it’s important to note that by collecting the faeces of these rare leopard seal’s, biologists can determine how long they have been occupying these New Zealand waters and what the Antarctic predators eat). NIWA Marine Biologist, Krista Hupman, kept the seal faeces USB stick in a freezer for over a year before Nally claimed that it was in fact her USB.
