Response to Original message
2. Wonderful
This just raised the chances of an oil war
between Britain and Brazil / Argentina, after
Britain wants the seabed around the Falklands.

They wanted it because there -might- be oil.
Now that's most likely confirmed, we can have
Falkland II.

Shame the next earth-like planet is some
50 light-years away.
