Remember that oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico?  That was nasty, huh?  Good thing that's all over and done with.  Except not….

Dr. Jim Cowan, with Louisiana State University’s Department of Oceanography, spoke to Al Jazeera recently and described the regular complaints he gets from fishermen, who often warn of deformed sea life like eyeless shrimp, crabs without claws, fish whose hearts don’t fully form, and numerous creatures with unexplained lesions on them.

“The fishermen have never seen anything like this,” he’s quoted as saying. “And in my 20 years working on red snapper, looking at somewhere between 20 and 30,000 fish, I’ve never seen anything like this either.”
