    I realize many of you still labor under the delusion that "Fossil fuels" come from long dead dinosaurs, so first let's have a moment of silence for the billions of velicoraptors who died on that spot oh so long ago, then you can post how:

    1. The find won't make a difference

    2. The Find will melt the ice caps both on Earth and Mars and

    3. It's ok if the Chinese drill here

    McMoRan Exploration Co. today announced what it said could be one of the largest oil and natural gas discoveries in the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico in decades.

    The discovery was made at the Davy Jones ultra-deep prospect located on South Marsh Island Block 230 in about 20 feet of water and 10 miles off the Louisiana coast, the New Orleans company and Energy XXI, one of its Houston partners in the project, said in statements this morning."

    Wait a minute here! Are you saying that Oil is natural? I thought it was invented by the Bush/Halliburton industrial complex to enslave us and destroy the planet!

    Louisianians won't care about drilling off their coast. Now if the find had been off Palm Beach, Florida.....

    Yes. We have oil off the coast of Florida but they won't drill for it. The Chinese are slant drilling for it now. This deposit runs from Latin America, the Caribbean and the Gulf coast of Florida. The depost is estimated to be between from 4.6 to 9.3 billion gallons. This compares to the 4-10 billioin estimated to be in the ANWAR.

    Our leaders are morons.

    Gawd put bones in the ground for two reasons:

    1. So we can see what creatures on other planets look like.

    2. To give dogs something to dig up.
