Corn, can’t do this!

My first post with my Dood, Calmixx back in the house, and I gotta start like this! But, if anyone will actually look at this and give a shit, it’s you… My fellow Geeks. This image was taken from the International Space Station. That gang, is the Gulf oil Fuck up!

Yes, the gray muck is oil! I’m not gonna jump on my soap box, but we better wake up now! If Brazil is running fossil fuel free… What the Hell is wrong with the “greatest country in the world”!?! Not like farming Ethanol would be the shot of adrenalin America needs right now. Ok… I’m done for now.

Damn… Can’t wait to see Rachel Nichols in Conan! (see calmixx’s pic)

About Brother Jobu

Little is officially known about Brother Jobu. Geekpropaganda's research department have found ancient cave, Hieroglyphic, Mayan, and Native American paintings suggesting he has been here for quite sometime. Any government inquires about this entity have been met... With resistance. What we do know is, he loves classic Kung-Fu movies, video games, comic books, Football, and music. His true agenda however... Is yet to be discovered.

    Yeah . . . at what point is our Government going to get out there and do something about this. Isn’t that much oil in the ocean . . . bad? Won’t it eventually start poisoning OTHER country’s as well? Is that when our leaders will care? This administration is an abysmal failure. The exact opposite of King Midas.

    While watching the latest news about the BP Oil spill, a frightening thought came to mind: what if we can’t stop the oil? I mean, what happens if after all the measures to cap the pipe fail, (i.e., “Top Hat”, “Small Hat” and “Top Kill”). What then? An accident this problematic is new territory for BP. The oil pipeline is nearly a mile down on the ocean floor, accessible only by robots. Add on top of that the extreme pressure at which the oil is flowing out of the pipeline and there you have it: the perfect storm.

    Moreover, scientists also claim that they’ve found an enormous plume of oil floating just under the surface of the ocean measuring approximately 10 miles long, 3 miles wide and 300 feet thick. (I’m no math genius, but I bet one of you reading this could figure out just how many barrels of oil that is…)

    There are new estimates that the amount of oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico is anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 barrels of oil a day: that’s a far cry from BP’s estimated 5,000 barrels a day. If BP’s estimates are correct, the total amount of oil now in the Gulf would be approximately 150,000 barrels (or 6,300,000 gallons). That’s barely enough to fill 286 swimming pools: sixteen feet, by thirty-two feet, by eight and a half feet deep. That wouldn’t cover an area the size of New York City, let alone an area the size of Delaware. Obviously, the spill is much larger than we are being led to believe. If the leak can’t be stopped, in a year’s time, we’ll have roughly 18,250,000 barrels of oil (or 766,500,000 gallons) in our oceans, killing our marine and animal wildlife. Such a calamity would be environmentally and economically disastrous. I’m not a religious man, but I pray that BP and our government work fast to end this catastrophe.
