    The chem comp of the watery "goop"?
    There is no such thing as "goop"...what is it?
    The oil/corexit mixture is in various states of dispersal.
    All the different "morphs" like tar mats , balls, gunk , goop, blobs,etc....represent various stages of dispersal. All are toxic. I think this would be alot more evident with some fly-overs ...
    Except.. the Gulf is under a no-fly zone order.. except.. for the oil companies and the military.
    The local governments allow or are part of this.
    So "slick".. most of them think the are....no guilt..for lining their pockets with BP/Gov money while the people suffer.

    Maybe the guys in the northern gulf better take a lesson from the Egyptians before it is too late.

  • Brilliant term: Watery Goop. That would earn you an F in High school Chemistry.
