Time to grab your big stompy robits, fellas. That there is a portal to another galaxy through which giant kaiju will come.

That's good news at least.

Ah well, I'll get to use my Destroid Monster Mk II (my giant stompy robit of choice) some other time I s'pose.

Okay, just imagine what this looks like to someone, who's forum pages, for some reason, don't show anything but blankness?  Thank goodness, @Snargfargle included a link.  With the weather we've all been having I was worried.

I found a picture of one of the fireboats.

Reminds me of the stories of the Cuyahoga River (so polluted it caught fire over a dozen times.)

It's been 50 years since the Cuyahoga River burned, here's how you can  celebrate

Ah, the town of my birth.  You know you're big time when your river catches fire.

The oil in the Gulf comes up to the surface, where it can be skimmed away.

On the other hand, the 'Keystone Pipeline' Bakaan Crude is heavy and will sink to the bottom.  It won't catch on fire, but it makes cleanup impossible with the bottoms of waterways becoming a sticky, gooey mess.

This is why there are so many protesters in the mid-west US who have seen these spills off the smaller Keystone pipeline.  And they are trying to run the new lines in a short-cut across major aquifers.
If one of the new larger pipelines under construction breaks, it'll sink straight down through the soil and render thousands of square miles uninhabitable.

Pretty sure this was a gas leak and not an oil leak. Pemek has a terrible safety record so this isnt surprising.

Wonder what part of the Gulf that is at?

Found it, here is the story

Are they sure it was a pipeline rupture and not a whale farting underwater?
