Can you solve a mystery that's happened 4 different times over a period of time in the past year?


How can a sea shell, like the one pictured here with a normal size bottle cap, end up laying in a secure fenced in factory parking lot over 200 miles from the nearest ocean?

    I never thought of a fresh water shell, which is a big possibility in solving this mystery.

    This was considered The Examiner-1, however we ruled this possibility out due to the fact that it would have involved at least 4 different birds carrying the seashells over 200 miles inland on 4 scattered dates, which is highly unlikely.

    Both of these ideas are very possible MizBejabbers. My co-workers and myself couldn't solve this mystery on our own, which is why I decided to raise this question to all of my friends here at the Hub Pages.
