    Jeez, and I thought that recent BP funded study showed that most of the oil disappeared via hungry, hungry microbes.

    Could it be that study was mostly full of shit?

    @Cowicide Considering that essentially every other BB post on the DWH blowout has been proved by the passage of time to be based on uninformed scaremongering, my money’s on the science. (And no, the report you refer to was not “BP funded”. Too bored of this nonsense to waste any more time Googling up refutations, but once again I strongly recommend as a great place to see various hypothesis and suggestions being thrashed out in the open by some knowledgeable, well-informed posters.

    It’s only the base of the food chain. How bad can it be?

    I guess ‘sea snot’ is better than ‘sea spooge’.

    BP has announced plans to dump 120 metric tons of Sudafed into the Gulf.

    the clumps of mucus may have temporarily wiped out the base of the food chain in the spill region.

    …in areas where the heavier fractions of oil hadn’t already done so.

    I had no problems w/ going into the ocean before, but this cuts it. Sea snot! I am never going in the ocean again. Disgusting! I fell like I need to take a shower after reading this story, or at least sanitize my hands.

    Please join my campaign to use ‘snautillus’ as the term for such sea spooge creatures.
