Who would have thought......

And, if the centrifuges don't work as well as they hope, they could always stuff the master copies of The Postman into the junk shot and help plug the well that way  ;)

sounds like it could work to me.

What also interested me, is by maritine Law Costner would own the oil extracted.

Can sell it back to BP and get his $23m investment back and more.

I would finally forgive him for the three hours of my life that was wasted on Waterworld.

I have no diea if this will work, hopefully it does but the article and pointed out several decent points IMO to not get overly excited just yet.

If some enterprising person is able to seperate the oil from the water (eventually someone will figure this out), then do they own the oil?  Does the US?  Does BP?

Don't feel bad about that. One of my guilty pleasure movies is Big Trouble In Little China. A masterpiece it is not!
