NEWS FLASH: Oil-eating bacteria in for a feast, but might cause the earth to implode!

Now get this: An oil-eating bacteria produced by the company Osprey Biotechnics in the USA might be used to clean up the BP disaster. The product, known as Munox, is a bacteria that degrades petroleum. Since the BP oil spill on April 20, Osprey Biotechnics has been working to get Munox applied to oil-contaminated water and sand in the Gulf of Mexico. Apparently, Munox consumes oil, digests it and breaks it down into harmless substances such as water and minute amounts of carbon dioxide. Osprey estimates that 55 gallons of Munox would treat 36.5 square miles of water in the Gulf of Mexico, and a little more than 100 of the 55 gallons would treat 4,000 square miles. The company says it has enough inventory on site to make hundreds of thousands of gallons.

The best case scenario is that the bacteria will have one hell of a feast and everything will be hunky-dory again. The worst case scenario - as far as I can see - is that it will eat every fucking drop of oil on the planet and the Earth will collapse in on itself taking us with it.

But I'm not a fucking scientist, so who give a fuck what I say :-)
