    The aftermath of the BP spill continues:

    And why in the fuck do we have to rely on news outlets like Al Jazeera to publish this stuff. Why aren't mainstream news outlets in the U.S. still following this story?

    BP Oil Spill Aftermath: Eyeless Shrimp, Clawless Crabs and Fish with Oozing Sores

    Sickening.

    More importantly, does mutant seafood taste better than dog?

    :dunno:

    It's because there are much more important stories going on in the MSM like Obama eating dog meat as a child and Romney spraying his dog down with a hose after making it ride in a car carrier on top of the family car. Things like mutant sea creatures are just stories like Creature From the Black Lagoon. We want real stories about who eats dog meat and who sprays their dog down with a hose after it shit all over the car.

    How can mutants exist if evolution is wrong?

    look up the definition of 'mutate', then 'evolve'. Then ask that question. Actually, if you look them both up, you probably won't have to ask.

    I live on the gulf and half the people I know are shrimpers and fishermen. I think they are closer to the story than Al Jazeera.

    Shrimp and crabs are bellwether species, dramatic evidence of genetic mutation is something to be worried about. We have been using the Gulf for a chemical dump and toilet for a long time, I feel we will see the day when its entire eco-system collapses.
