    no idea what he's talking about there. but you're right, he likes to throw it around, often!

    The thing that was killing me, is that I recall him commenting in the rovs before so it's not like he doesn't know. a big WTF came to my mind.

    I scrolled right by the pix in his diary. Really, there should be a warning. I know how ya feel about the images. Those videos of September 11th, still can't watch them without turning it off and crying. I really can't see the value in watching an actual death. Maybe for others it is effective. But for some, the mind's eye is effective enough for action. I think most people here, under the sea, a very well aware that the oil we see, everyday, spewing from Gerty is killing millions of lifeforms. We don't necessarily need it thrown in our faces to have an impact. I think that's what made the crab so fascinating. Seeing something alive down there. We all know the gulf is fast becoming a gigantic dead zone. We knew it the day they admitted the well was leaking. This is not a place that stupid people dwell...

    I was really impressed that it did not take long. One day I'll make it to the japanese supermarket a couple of towns over. I'll look for your gum!
