Volcano of oil to be absorbed using stockings

3 posts in this topic

As fears grow last night that BP's attempt to put a lid on the massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico is doomed to failure citizens on the Louisiana coastline are pitching in – by donating their HAIR to soak up the spill.

Barbershop and salon cuttings are being stuffed into nylon stockings to form a ‘hair boom’ that which will be placed in areas of the spill to soak it up.

Astonishingly, each pound of hair is capable of absorbing as much as a gallon of oil.

EXTREME RECYCLING!

Isn't there a plan to block the pipe using golf balls and tyre shreds?

There are a lot of plans in place, also keeping in mind that plugging the leak doesn't take care of the oil already out, and from what I remember, yes, hair and fur does in fact absorb oil, so this plan isn't terrible, for all that the media pokes at it.
