    As for your thought experiment, I did not think there were active faultlines in the area. Seems a small tsunami dealt at once may be preferably to a constant leak til August.

    By the way, nice display of empathy for the environmental damage.
    What empathy?

    <--- No empathy, remember? I can't relate to what would be sad, so I don't know what you mean by it.

    Empathy for the environment over this spill doesn't assist me with any challenge I'm facing in life right now. Empathy for the environment over this spill is therefore useless, and if it useless it therefore has no value.

    I suppose you would also cry when a grown adult gets a skinned knee. That's what this oil spill is to the planet. Yeah it sucks for the knee for a little while, but in the big picture it doesn't matter.

    Depends. If the knee was Saudi Arabia, I wouldn't be upset. But dammit - The knee is America.

    Any thought as to the size of warhead and how the detonation would effect the environment?

    One worry that I'd have with nuking the oil well is that the radiation might likely settle towards the bottom of the gulf. A strong hurricane would bring up water from the lower oceanic levels, so we might just have a radioactive hurricane.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Radiation is just high energy light (photons) and would be absorbed as heat. What you would be concerned about is the radioactive isotopes formed by the fission. I don't know what the dispersal would be. If it is highly dispersed, like I think it would be as there would be no big chunks of it only particles, then the ocean currents would carry it away. No problemo.

    I would very much want to see a few nuclear physicists come out and agree before I'd be comfortable with us nuking the oil well. I'm not sure if I'd buy it.

    Yeah, it would probably be best to consult one or two of those guys (or gals). I just have an undergrad degree.

    In all seriousness, I agree. Besides, we should test those things from time to time...
    Very nice picture of a FRESH WATER STURGEON
