n.— «Can anyone give me a factual account of how those little tiny plastic disks got into the sand in HB. I was born there in 1964 and for as long as I can remember they have been in the sand there, but not down in Laguna or San Clemente. Some buffoon told me that they are called “Nurdles,” dumb name but anyway this mystery has been picking my brain for some time.» —“HB Nurdles” by Charles McCartney Usenet: alt.surfing July 1, 1996.
