How to Absorb Oil Spills Safely and Easily

Oil spills can make quite a mess, and cleaning them up is no fun. It can stain your driveway and ruin your clothes. It can be difficult to clean up the residue that is left behind from an accidental oil spill. Simply washing it all down the drain is not an option. Oil can also wreak havoc on the environment when it gets into the ecosystem. Cleaning it up safely and quickly is a priority. It would also be preferable if there were an easy way to clean up the spilled oil. So what is the best absorbent material to use when cleaning up the mess?

One way to clean up oil spills that mechanics have known about for long time is by using cat litter. By its very design, it is excellent at soaking up the materials. You need only spread some cat litter over the oil and let it set for a few minutes. The cat litter will quickly soak up the oil and it can be shoveled into a trash can. Cat litter also works very well if the oil spill is large. You will be able to see cat litter getting darker and as it soaks up the oil.

Other common items that work well for cleaning up oil is sawdust. Sawdust can quickly absorb the oil before it gets out of control. The last thing you want if you have an accidental oil spill is for the oil to soak into the ground and get into the water table. Oil that gets into drain pipes can quickly make its way to rivers and streams. It does not take long for a little bit of oil to do a lot of damage. Using sawdust to stop the oil before it spreads is very effective.

How to Survive 2012

Everyone seems to be talking about how the world is about to end in 2012. A variety of reasons include 1) a big-ass chunk of rock named Eros is about to make super close contact with planet earth (nah, it's going to hit the planet), 2) ancient mayans have prophesized that this was the same date the whole universe was created so we'll all get sucked into some black hole and everything of existence will become, err, well, none existent (or we might just all blowup) 3) Global warming takes its toll and we get swept away with weather-related catastrophies (we should've listened to Captain Planet) and /or 4) war, well, need I explain?

These are all just hoaxes and ways to excite humanity because quite frankly, I think mankind has been bored to death trying to search for a purpose of existence. There's more to life than a day in the office, getting laid, making money and blogging. So hell, let's just pretend that 2012 is the day where we all die. Wow. As for the first reason, well, I'm no rocket scientist but I'm sure the people in Nasa have an answer for that. Yep. We need old man Bruce Willis again to save the world by selflessly vlounteering himself to blow up that Erotic piece of rock lined with Gold, sulfur and other yellow stuff. The 2nd reason still confuses me as research has told me that this marks the end of the baktuns, a way of counting days and stuff. Quite frankly, I don't see the difference of that from Christmas or Labor Day. I don't think it's going to kill us all when the Mayans proved they knew how to count more than a hundred thousand days. For the thrid reason, i have to say, that is pretty close to truth. Although I have to bring up the fact that people have been planting more trees and it seems that media has told us all to conserve, reuse and recycle. But just for good measure, I'm sure all of us know how to swim and that there are boats to help get rid of the problem, if not float over it. Lastly, I think war, too, is overrated and they will somehow develop a way of turning warring nations and their leaders into willing and nerdy digital gaming flok. Yes. Land is taken by digitally annihilating your opponent in a game of Red Alert 3 or Command and Conquer. I can imagine, Barrack Obama and Kim Jong Il going at it. Soviet Supremacy versus Allied Determination. Of course, the thing that powers these gaming consoles will be Nuclear Power planst. Or the warheads themselves. So hell, peace on earth is granted. Let gaming violence commence!

One thing I know ahout the apocalypse and all these factors that have contirbuted to its popularity in 2012 is this:

The world is going to end with a zombie apocalypse. Everyone knows it.
Firstly, a big-ass rock could carry some special virus ion it that turns everyone and everything into mindless, bloodthristy and violent walking (and running) corpses. Secondly, that mayan bullcrap could actually bring out some sort of ancient spell that turns the living into undead creatures and the already dead walking (and running) with them. Thirdly, well, I have to say this was tricky, but I figured it out. People will be so hungry taht they'd go cannibalistic and start eating other people's flesh. Hunger makes a beast out of everyone and the only survivors left will be...the vegetarians. Lastly. Well, the typical nation-creates-a-virus scene where a sudden outbreak occurs and humanity screws itslef up- BIGTIME!

So now that we're sure that the zombie apocalypse is what's happening on 2012, let's move on to what we want to do for mankind to continue existing:

1) Always have a gun with you- You can never leave a good gun behind. Regardless of weight or firepower, guns are the basic tools taht serve as that demarcation line between certain zombiedom or survival of the species. Whether you're locked up in a barricade defending you dear lives or making it through a designated evac shelter, guns are your bestfriends. Worried about killing the ones you love who used to live? Well. just let a team member do it for ya. Make sure you have the irght combination of guns. While Assault rifles fire endlessly and more accurately, a good shotgun is always handy to have around for those shock and awe moments with undead bosses.

2) Always travel in groups of 4-5. The fifth being a decoy and the 4 set to where they're suppposed to go. The fifth guy should always-always- be the impotent and helpless one. If you're going to have a renwed human race, it's always important to keep in mind what kinf of people we want to inherit survival in a damned planet;. There must always be a female to. Brunette, blond, asian or whatever, they must always be protected first- you can't expect s guy to carry a baby right?

3) Make sure you have a handy dandy flare ready.. to hell with it, make sure you got everything!- Just enough to get you to a safe spot and make as many babies as you can. Also, take note of looking out for other survivors. the mroe the mrerier right? Plus, you can't have too many decoys around. More men means more firepower and more women means nore chances for the human rce to survive.

4) Make sure you're in a very safe place. A mall has lots of supplies. A big-ass house would prevent more zombies from entering your home.

Well, these are my tips to survive 2012. I'll come back with some more.

Some Random facts about debaters

Everyone knows how these people mouth-off at least 1000 rounds of senseless words in .001 seconds and that the real thing that kills the poor listeners' souls is not the bacteria filled saliva (comparable to that of the Komodo Dragon's) but the infectious boredom and pointlessness of their speech.

Here are some random FACTS about collegiate debaters that is sure to bring out socio-political awareness in the reader:

1.) 94.9% of men in this community are gay. To sum it all up, there are 90% straight-out fags, 19% doubters and 1% closet dick-suckers. What kind of self-respecting man would rant for 8 minutes about social justice and equality and not know that his/her/it's kind is not generally accepted? I mean, if you're gay, straight-out, flaunt it suck a dick or something.

2.) All of these people are actually socially retarded. Geeks+ Parties= kids who try hard to fit in a world that is obviously not liking them. Debaters they call "prodigies" or have excellent analytical skills are what normal people call "freaks". And they can't even fucking hold a cup right without debating whether it's best that the cup be empty or not.

Don't get me started on what they wear. I mean, cosplayers look more decent than some of these flat-chested, freckle-faced retards who have trouble trying to determine the difference of a motel from a comfort room. I mean really. Even dogs know that the john is not a proper place to make out, err, well, mate! RETARDS!

3.) They're all talk and no walk. Let's admit it. These guys don't do shit about the things they talk about. They're the educated and spoiled sector of the youth who complain and complain and complain. They rant and rant and in the end of the day, they achieve nothing more but a tired mouth and for people who are environmentally aware, they spew out a lot of carbon dioxide. PETA is better than these people!

For people who think that being obese should be taxed, they sure are heavyweight idiots. They even try to argue on the side of the Catholic Chruch and against it, but they sure don't do a lot of reading with their bibles. They couldn't even quote Jesus if Pontius Pilate came up! Or if the Vatican was crumbling. And they have the nerve to tell people about equality and rights, well fuck you! You could have donated your blood to a bank or used all that money and energy for charitable purposes.

4.) They are the epitome of degrading moral standards in the Philippines. I believe I've said enough about this reason in the other statements. But let's not stop there. Aside from making out in the comfort rooms during parties, wearing scant pieces of garments, they even defend fucking homosexuality! WTH? They also claim to be atheists or agnostics. Wow. Well, goes to show that these people think they're so smart that they have their heads shoved way up their asses. These people couldn't even tell that no one gives a fuck about what they say!

4.) In the words of the great GamerTotoy, They live for the big fucking day (or week). These people duke out tons of money and effort into tournaments where everyone wants to hear everyone out. I mean, really, they spend countless hours matter fucking loading and shit like that.

They spend hard-earned money just so they could be part of something big like the National Debate Championship or the Philippine Intercollegiate Debate Championship and what for? To speak for a lousy 8 minutes and spew out tons of spit in the hopes of infecting the adjudicators with flesh eating, mind-rotting bacteria to death. WTF?! If you guys want to find out who the hell's smarter, go to some dumb-ass place where there are lots of plants and rant. Rant your ass off.

Don't they realize that there's a completely sunnier place than hanging out with other social retards?

Say Ahhh...

Cymothoa exigua

UK Guardian blasts PS3

So much for unbiased and responsible journalism. Tha UK Guardian definitely isn't the poster boy for those qualities. The site just ran an artice listing the pros and cons of the Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony PlayStation 3. Everything was going well, except that the writer missed the pros for the PS3.

The site called Sony's current-generation console a disappointment and a platform only for those obsessed with the PlayStation brand. No mention of free online play, a built-in Blu-ray drive, and some of the best games out there were made.

The article called the Wii a nice intro to games and showed some love for its motion controls. The Guardian did say that the graphics aren't as impressive as the Xbox 360's and the PS3's and it told its readers that ground-breaking games for the console are infrequent.

Where it gets shady is on the Xbox 360 part which is a polar opposite of the PS3 bit. The Guardian showed love for everything the console does, but it did try to throw in sone form of criticism by dissing the Arcade SKU.

Way to parade your ignorance, Guardian. Next time stick to guarding whatever you're guarding in the UK and leave the gaming to us.

Floyd vs Manny- Why it would suck

(Bob Arum)

Mark your calendars for the "real" dream match people. March 13, 2010 is the official date where the two Titans face off.

(Do not mess with the mad scientist)

Despite all the controversies and all the boxing-geek analysis of the Mayweather-Pacquiao match, we are all destined to see it come the 13th of March, despite Freddy Roach's insistence that the fight should at least be on May 1.

Fight analysis comes later on. Allow me to rant about 1) Bob Arum's greed for money; 2) Manny's greed for glory- or maybe money too and 3) about how trash talk against the pacman won't work.

Days ago, Bob Arum flew to the Philippines to talk with the Filipino boxing legend about his supposed fight with Mayweather. It is evident that the Pacific typhoon is hellbent on facing boxing's moneyman Mayweather. After his ravaging of Puerto Rican pride, Miguel Cotto, Pacquiao says "I want to fight Mayweather". Not that he was able to fully construct the sentence in a correct manner, the essence is there anyway. To add to the drama, the crowd chanted "we want Floyd!" Is this a challenge to the Filipino pride? Or just a way of shutting up the blabber mouth that Mayweather is? It wouldn't matter anyway. So maybe after a few snacks and a beer or two, the two (Manny and Bob) settle and agree on March 13.


Bob Arum must already know that his boy, Manny, currently suffers a broken eardrum due to a devastating shot from Cotto. Freddie Roach says that he needs more time to recuperate, which I believe (despite being wrong in all his predictions, e.g., Hatton fight ends in 3 when it ended in 2, Cotto fight ends in 1, 9 or 10 which ended in 12) is a reasonable excuse for the fight to be pushed at least May 1st. I know that Bob just wants to make his boy, Manny, happy- but deep inside every fat-ass corporate tycoon, lies a greedy demon ready to pounce on money. And when money's there, it's there. Just so happens that Bob sealed the deal with Golden Boy out of some alcohol-induced talk and both probably wanted the fight March 13- could've pushed for a later date, but NO.

Manny, on the other hand, fiery and determined as he is doesn't see the punch that he's walking into. The Cotto fight has been his hardest fight ever, says Coach Roach, and he's clearly not out of the woods yet. Cotto dished out a hell of a lot of good shots to the body and I'm pretty sure they hurt. Another thing, the Filipino Dynamo is vying for a place in Congress (like they need more idiots there). This should make focus for the Filipino a lot harder. I mean, preparations for the Cotto fight was hard enough to deal with- a reason why Pacquiao suffered that much, what more the tedious task of political advertising? This guy just won't stop. I know that he serves as a poster boy for filipino hardwork and shit but I suggest he stick to boxing. Politics will just ruin his name.

Floyd Gayweather, on the other hand, talks a lot of trash and maybe he should. Given the filipino's success, insecurity should set in and I can't blame the guy for telling the world that he (mayweather) can beat the filipino pride in an "easy fight". I don't quite call him a fighter yet because he's just some opportunist who backs up every time and chances upon that moment where his opponents are most vulnerable. A fighter is one who's fallen but is able to stand up again. Mayweather hasn't been defeated yet so a fighter, he's not. Just some street thug who happened to learn how to box and flee when the time requires it. Now his trash-talking may have affected his opponents from the past- but not Manny Pacquiao. I think one reason why Manny's a great fighter is because he isn't affected by word play. Business is business, like he says (in filipino, of course). Maybe one reason he isn't touch by verbal mud sling is the fact that he doesn't have full mastery of English. He's too simplistic (wouldn't want to say dumb) to understand that he's being treated like trash-which he is certainly not given his boxing success.

Well. With all that money on the line, the bastard pushed forward for a 65/45 share of the profit. Cowardice or just pure money politics? I wouldn't know. One thing's for sure though. This fight's gonna be one hell of a money maker. Kudos to Boxing and the blood thirsty crowd!

Fight analysis-wise, it's going to be Mayweather's jabs against the flurry of Pacquiao's fists. If we're going to observe the fights of Pacman, he's jarred by jabs and given Mayweather's height advantage, it's going to be one hell of a challenge for the Pacific typhoon. Also, Mayweather is a defensive strategist, so if he's not throwing jabs, he's just sidestepping or moving back, setting something up in the process. Hopefully, Roach thinks of a way to counter that. So it's settled, the typhoon against the king. Place your bets people this is going to be either a very boring fight (thanks to Mayweather's gay tactics) or a very exciting one (thanks to the fists or pacquiao).

For the most part, Manny Pacquiao, please don't go to politics, or singing, or acting. A lot of boxers are respected and loved because they are what they are- fighters. Nothing more, nothing less. But I guess you wouldn't understand that. Bruce Lee is a great fighter, but he never ran for president.

Oh, and Mayweather, prepare for a beating of a lifetime you ass-fuck. Mouth off all you want. You got your money. You got your fame. One day, someone's going to have to take a stand. Someone's going to have to say enough. Maybe Pacquiao didn't say that, but the people did.
