We think we have it bad

Come to the crystal clear waters of the Yellow Sea and frolic in our newly formed oil bath. Our ancient chinese secret formula will exfoliate your skin down to the bone. Great for removing those long time pesky inperfections in your complexion. Also included is a hair oil treatment you'll never forget.

This is of course a worker being rescued from the sea when an oil pipline broke spilling 400,000 gallons into the Yellow Sea. From the description this type of oil is far more difficult to clean up than the oil we have on our shores. I believe it to be bunker oil which is about as thick as peanut butter and it doesn't look like the chinese were prepared for the clean up by the following statement:

"We don't have proper oil cleanup materials, so our workers are wearing rubber gloves and using chopsticks," an official with the Jinshitan Golden Beach Administration Committee told the Beijing Youth Daily newspaper in apparent exasperation.

Oh and do they bother to close their beaches and fishing? Of coure not, they just wait until the population figures it out that it's not smart to go swimming or fishing. When your sea bass dinner starts smelling like 40 weight it's time to switch to chicken.
Now I see why the republicans like the chinese so much... not many rules.

Given that their rivers are notoriously grimy, I'm sure this doesn't rate too high on the Chinese government's Nonpublic Things To Do List.

Ready for a swim? Come on in, the oil's nice.

I heard that but thinking about what is happening here I just listened about it. They will nt do the right thing as more than here they do what they damn well please. Just one thing, that has to be a joke about the chopsticks right?

Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh .... I know this is awful, but I couldnt stop laffing on this .... especially China, who's also fixin to tear up Afghanistan and mine the copper ... too bad they dont want to add troop's in Afganistan, heh? Well ... no need to I reckon when you have sucker's like the USA to pay and die for everyone! :)

Humanity across the board deserve's everything it get's.

It's amazing what the Chinese eat, ever seen a Walmart store in China?

At 3:00 AM in the morning a post will be put up on my blog showing most of the components of a 'forever shower' that uses just two gallons of water. Maybe less.

China has surpassed us in energy usage. Something they are not proud in some ways, it makes them seem like us after bitching about us and our wasteful ways for years.

You and I both know that bunker oil is just about fucking tar.
They have to heat it up just to get it to flow.
Nasty shit, that stuff.
