I Feel the Earth Lube Under My Feet
Has it ever occurred to anyone that oil is in the planet for a reason? Lubrication. Do you ever notice the planet spinning? Of course you don't because (at present anyway) the planet is well lubricated and spinning silently. If oil keeps spilling out of that hole in the Gulf, and if we keep drilling, I predict we will start hearing a squeak. It will be subtle at first but soon more and more people will be complaining of ringing ears. The earth will start to slow down; days and nights will get longer and longer until eventually the planet comes to a screeching halt. I think someone should tell future President Palin this. It seems like logic she could understand.
