lost shoes

On a beach on an island in Indonesia, actually on quite a lot of beaches we stopped on, there were hundreds and hundreds of lost foam flip flops. One of the crew on the boat told me that if you looked at them again, they were all left footed shoes. And they were. He said that maybe because of their shape or maybe because of something else, all the left handed shoes ended up on one side of the world, and all the right handed shoes ended up on another.

I'm not sure if it's true or not. But it's nice.

(Edit: Stephen Fry says true)
