Enough is (Not) Enough

You know that sinking feeling you get when you ravenously tear open a bloated snack bag only to find a whole lot of air and a mere handful of chips lying forlornly at the bottom? Well, a group of South Korean college students finally had enough and decided to air their grievances by building a raft out of 160 sealed bags of potato chips. Two of them then paddled the raft 0.62 miles (1.3 kilometers) across the Han River, supported the entire way by the nitrogen gas sealed inside the chip bags.
