BTW the video is retarded, it could come from any redneck neighborhood where people don't know how to fix their cars and spill car oil everywhere. Also, you get the same poo when you live near a farm crop that uses pesticides often.
The only way the oil would get farther inland is if we had a bad hurricane on the shore. Thats about it. The guy videotaping probably didn't think about that.

poo like this has been happening for years. The yanks up north never noticed because hey.. for the companies out there drilling its easier for them to pay the fines of the pooload of regulations they break than to actually fix the poo.Something like this was bound to happen anyway.Its not just BP its every god damn drill out here on our bays.What gets me is the smart asses who keep spouting all this poo like they know how to fix it and that BP is all to blame, and we're just rednecks who are overreacting about it all. A lot of people out here have lost their livelihood. A lot of us don't know if other places around here are going to close out too. Florida fought for years to keep drilling off their bays and look whats gona happen now!I've been out there cleaning up tar balls and trying to keep my minimum wage job that depends heavily on the tourism here. Instead of people sitting and arguing about it, I'd like to see their asses out there actually doing something. Talk is cheap.

He He, jaygreer3000 has either mastered the art of sarcasm or that is the most misguided post I've ever seen.

1, The company is called BP PLC, maybe you would've had a chance at spelling that rather than the pre 1999 name. After it merged with Amoco (american) they dropped the British bit.

2, It wasn't a refinery

3, You pretty much do own BP and you definitely owned the drilling company who screwed this up.

Handy, if you would have any common sense, you'd check out my profile to begin with. It says: born the second of June 1992. I-A-B does not change the age portion when you age automatically. Analogously, I had to change that myself. You can count, right? It's been a while since I last visited, hence the late change. Thank you for your very insulting remarks about my age. It reminded me to change it. Not that it matters. Obviously, your pompous nature does seem to prevent you from not being a person diverging from the one you are. I'm going with the euphemisms now, see?

Second, I reacted to the whole "I thought Europeans had a good education", which in a whole is ridiculous to state as Europe is not a country where there is a universal educational system. I reacted to that, regardless who posted it. Second, I reacted to you because obviously, whether you directed your attack towards me alone or to a collective of individuals, I found your remark incredibly lame. Think

No it does not. However it can be picked up and mixed with storm clouds via water spouts which and mixed with storm fronts.

First if you had read back further the statement was not implying you alone to begin with. Second- since you changed the age portion also that just makes you full of crap. I have another term, but I'm done with the small minded trollism. Your embarrassing yourself too much.

PS: for your pleasure's sake, I changed that picture of that little boy just to give you the impression that I might approximate the majority of people on this site in terms of stature. It might be fun for you to find out which guy is me.

I would rephrase that but what different would it make were i to chuck euphemismic equivalents for "you're an unfounded, groundless moron" at you?

The rest of you dudes that might want to blame me for making a whole group look bad, I'd just like to inform you that your internet opninion counts for sh*t, just like mine does. The fact that I have a picture of a little boy apparently convinces some that I am still that same little boy, and that might mean two things. You're either afraid a little boy blames someone for throwing prejudices at a small quantity of maybe not so scienitifcally grounded Europeans. Or you're generally convinced I'm still a little boy. Either way, I don't really give a single flying crap about what your words represent.

One last point, it's not just us 'ignorant europeans'.....

The US Environmental Protection Agency has issued statements saying that the agency "has no data, information or scientific basis that suggests that oil mixed with dispersant could possibly evaporate from the Gulf into the water cycle."

handy, how is dust the same as oil? Dust storms are common around the world, dust consists of fine particles of light materials. Crude oil, by nature is sticky and does not readily form small particles. The wind is not going to magically suck the oil off the surface of the ocean. A good way to test this would be by seeing if a conventional vacuum cleaner is any good at sucking up oil.

Also, the only ignorance here is someone being insulting just because they hold a different opinion. Try to temper your responses in future. All that bad science must be making you angry.

Mahalo JantjeKroket I don't think majority of those in Europe are uneducated. It's little trolls like Owanie who tick me off. His kind are the same kind in the Americas that makes each group look like idiots. He and a few others even from USA set me off when they delight in disparaging remarks about others misfortunes.

I'm with handys003 on this one.
We think you should rephrase your summation.
Because you're young, and have the picture of boy.

Oh, and you're from Europe, that's probably our main argument.

Hmmm...your summation really looked very foolish. You sure you don't want to rephrase that little boy?

"I thought Europeans were better educated."

Yeah, because Europe is like a country, obviously! Every nation in Europe has the same system of education! Education makes people smart!

Douchec*nt.

Hmm, If the water can carry oil from the sea, into the clouds, over the land and then rain it back down then why isn't the rain salty too?

Answer, because this is fake. This is just not how the water cycle works. If you evaporate water it doesn't carry impurities. Hydrogen bonds are just not strong enough to hold anything when a single water molecule is involved.

This is the typical ignorant stuff from Europeans I'm talking about. You need to study why the Conservation Corps by FDR was created. Due to the neglect of the Dust Bowls of the 1930's Midwest. It's due in large part of the winds carrying it up into the air stream and carrying it and dumping it as muddy rain on Washington DC. That is how it got passed.

Where are these europeans getting the myth that America invaded Iraq for oil ?

Is that propaganda what your media and schools teaching you over there ?
