    BP advertisement

    There was a BP ad at the top of my forecast home page. I can't remember why, but I'm pretty sure I don't like BP.

    Ad networks, like Google, fill the open ad space that Swellinfo doesn't sell directly.
    So, these aren't hand picked by Swellinfo...

    reminder: BP spilled about a gillion gallons of oil in the Gulf... Please don't forget, why you don't like them...

    Yewww... on it! I kinda figured as much. Sorry the BP ad had to pop up on your site then. No doubt BP pays top dollar for ad space, but I wouldn't want to be the guy taking the check.

    I eat a lot of fish from the Gulf, I have yet to get sick from any of it, but that doesn't mean it isn't doing harm long term. I wonder how good of a clean up job they are doing, or if it's pretty much impossible to clear up such a mess.

    I remember hearing some really bad stories of people getting sick shortly after the cleanup after was started. Anyone in the Gulf have any stories to tell - good or bad?

    I don't know how to do the quote thing but, you guys actually thought I forgot why BP blows? C'mon. I figured the statement was profound enough for the sarcasm to be immediately detected. I would need to be pretty dumb (too dumb to use a computer) or pretty secluded to have missed that oil spill.

    Under each thread, to the bottom right is "reply", "reply with quote", etc...

    Sarcasm often doesn't translate well on the internet (unless you use parenthesis and write sarcasm with a smiley face) .

    Not that this in any way makes the BP spill ok, nor does it mean everything is back to normal, but somebody told me about this and I went and looked up an article. It looks like natural bacteria have actually done a large part of the clean up themselves! The earth can be pretty cool sometimes...
