Directly from the things-you-don't-want-to-run-into file:
Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) in the UK issued a warning to all vessels in the Pentland Firth to beware of a huge fishing net that was lost overboard from a fishing boat. It is about the length of six football (soccer for us North Americans) fields.
Already one fishing boat has been caught in the net and had to be cut out and towed back to harbour.
