The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Understatement Of The Day

This understatement of the day comes from Dr. Samantha Joye, a researcher at the University of Georgia.  She is involved in scientific missions to gather details about what is happening in the gulf in relation to the latest BPTransocean's oil leak. 

The oil leak is currently spreading out in layers within the water column due to the chemical dispersants that are being pumped in down at the site of the leak.  Here is how the fine Doctor describes the oil....

Given their size, the plumes cannot possibly be made of pure oil, but more likely consist of fine droplets of oil suspended in a far greater quantity of water, Dr. Joye said.

If that isn't an understatement of an underwater oil leak.....

Actually, I would actually tend to agree with the fine Doctor.  I would say that the Gulf of Mexico is a great quantity of water.
