    However in water I kind of doubt it dissolves that quicklu, and I really never really noticed that xd.

    It doesn't desolve..... it evaporates.... blows away on the wind..... becomes a gas..... that kinda thing.

    Got it..... the oil disolves from the water into the air.... makes perfect sense now that you point it out.

    Don't worry Costner will fix it.


    Gulf oil spill: Kevin Costner donates 'Ocean Therapy' invention to clean oil from sea; BP OK's tests

    Could there be a happy Hollywood ending to the Gulf oil spill?

    Enter "Waterworld" star Kevin Costner, who has spent years and millions of dollars perfecting a device that cleans oil from seawater.

    British Petroleum - desperate for ideas - gave the okay to test six of Costner's gizmos this week, said BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles.

    Costner's high-speed centrifuge machine has a Los Angeles-perfect name: "Ocean Therapy."

    Placed on a barge, it sucks in large quantities of polluted water, separates out the oil and spits back 97% clean water.

    "It's like a big vacuum cleaner," said Costner's business partner, Louisiana trial lawyer John Houghtaling.

    "The machines are basically sophisticated centrifuge devices that can handle a huge volume of water," he said.

    That is actually pretty cool. We should have had such simple technology years ago.

    They probably came from the ship's bilge.
