I for two
Thank you SquidEmperor,
I was absolutely certain someone on here would track down the bottle chucker - but thought it might take a few days.
Great work, hopefully we can get an update story.
Thank you for your digging

I struggled with getting my head round this one, and how much is theory and how much reality. I was hoping a commentator would jump in.
This video helps - an IBMer explaining quantum computing to a child, a teenager, an undergrad, graduate student and a professional. I got lost half way through undergrad...
It also shows just how mad the machines look - known as chandeliers apparently.
Many years ago a mate of mine was really chuffed to get his first job at an NGO in Pakistan.
He was duly dispatched to a regional office where he uncovered fairly serious corruption by the local boss. With the innocence of someone in their first job he gathered evidence and reported it back to head office.
He was quickly called back to headquarters and got on the bus expecting a glorious welcome and maybe a promotion.
Instead was instantly sacked. Not a great start to his career.
Either the local boss was paying off the man at the top, or the man at the top thought defending his position was more valuable than stopping corruption.
But whistleblowers at the UN deserve better protection. This story, and dozens like it, would not be possible without their courage.
And I can assure you they’re not doing it for the non-existent money.
