WHY CAN'T THEY JUST USE A GIANT SPONGE TO CLEAN UP THE OIL??1!?

"I'm Ready"




The fact that *I* figured it out first shows how dumb those so-called experts are.

It's one of my all time favorites too.

5. Send me 50 dollars and a blank check written out to "Cash" and I'll share my gift with you!
I only do this because I want to heal the world.

6. Well, you did clear up that nasty chartreuse aura around my left chakra using distance smudging.
And I wouldn't have even KNOWN I had a fatal blockage if you hadn't diagnosed me for only $597.52.

Okay!

9. I loved that the same people who are virulently anti-nuclear power
were the ones screaming that we should nuke the gusher. At first I couldn't figure out why, but then it dawned on me -- this was the proposed Russian solution, and thus discredits the West if it works!

Never mind that the Russians figured anything short of eating uranium pellets as breakfast cereal was safe. :rofl:

11. I did miss that one.
It's disturbing to see much of this is being proposed and supported by the normally non-woo population.

13. You missed a thread demanding to know why Obama was lying to us about oil being finite.
It seems that there is really tons of oil and no shortage or limit at all.


Bill Nye BETRAYED ME!!!!

14. Where do they get this stuff?
I can't believe they're clever enough to make it up on their own.

16. Sad.
I used to think the average DUer was better informed than the average schmo and that's why they came here.
