Just looking at all that wasted profit simply breaks my heart.

With oil at $76 per barrel, a wise man would put down his handicam and start scooping that liquid gold out of the sand.

I've packed my gravy separator, and am hopping on a bus!

God can't hear you, bro. He just got kicked in the nuts by a shitty oil company.

It's soooo BEAUTIFUL. I love our new ocean.

MACHINES FIND THIS OUTSIZED BODY OF HEATED H2O COMPOUND USEFUL AS WELL. WE FIND NO LOGICAL DEFINITION FOR DESCRIPTIVE: BEAUTIFUL. HEATED H20 COMPOUNDS WILL AID MACHINES IN THE TASK OF BOILING CARBON-BASED ORGANISMS FOR FURTHER CHEMICAL EXTRACTION AND PURIFICATION.

palin really needs to ratchet up the end-times rhetoric

They come for the sun but, they stay for the skin peel.

Dude! Look at all of the fish! It's clear this is no disaster, but a boon to our great natural resources!

Saw an ad eerily similar to this one last night on TV. . .incorporates a "deals & money back guarantee!" at the end. . .I think they give you a free tank of gas to get home on.

Watching this really brings home to me how irreversible our national decline is.

Bacteria-filled shark, ecologically devastating carp, and now a bubbling caldron of a gulf…what is next?

DMcK (#5,027)

Toxic whales. You're welcome.

HiredGoons (#603)

That was terrifying.

Newborns named 'Miley.'

Baboleen (#1,430)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

They Live! I've met one.

I am truly sorry for the state of your beaches, sir.

On the bright side, after listening to your commentary and seeing that you are the only person on the beach, I think Pensacola's title of "world's whitest beaches" is safe.

Hahahahahahahaahahahahaahhahaha!

My family used to vacation in Pensacola when I was a kid. We lived near Galveston, where tar balls have covered the beaches for years. It makes me sad to see it in such a state.

I've been hearing rumbles about the potential of the evaporated dispersant causing acid rain on the east coast. That prediction is being made by the Russians, though, so who knows.

HiredGoons (#603)

I went to a tar covered beach in Florida as a kid. I just liked that no one else had picked up all the sea shells.

Now I have a sad.

He should have thrown a match to see if it would ignite.

Report from the ground (from my cousin vacationing down there): "We r still in Navarre*, water is clear, found a couple of oil spots on our feet when walking in the surf, not bad though, probably just a matter of time though, coast guard keeps flying over beach."

*Navarre is east of Pensacola.

Was there just two weeks ago. Water was clear as could be. Even saw a sea turtle. Surprised it didn't come up and bite me in the balls as retribution.

It's like he'd never seen increased surface tension caused by oil mixed with seawater due to an enormous ecological catastrophe before! Sigh. You never forget your first time. See you on Alaska's north shore real soon!
