One of the great underrated news stories is the massive highway spill of any non-harmful object. Last week, it was Skittles meant for cows. A few years ago thousands of ketchup spilled onto a highway. Earlier this year it was thousands of pounds of salmon. Why is this such an entertaining story? Who knows. But it is.
The latest such story took place near Indianapolis yesterday when a tractor trailer driver lost control of his trailer, spilling 38,000 pounds of marbles onto Interstate 465.

The highway was closed for most of Saturday for cleanup. Despite literally losing his marbles, the truck driver was unharmed. No other injuries were reported either.
