- Right now, valiant BP scientists are top-killing the heck of out of the all-spewing oil well in the Gulf of Mexico! Yup, they're sure giving their all at killing ... the top ... of the thing ... in a top kill. Which involves stone-cold pumping mud into the durn hole, we guess. Will it work? Is there any way for so-called "scientists" to know how this is working, or whether it's working at all right now? Probably not! But many nerd-types are hopeful!

So, fingers crossed that all we have to deal with is the terrible disaster that's already happened, and not thousands and thousands of gallons of new disaster daily! [NYT]
