Little Balls of Oil

This looks like a very game changing way to ship oil!

I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

This could be the new technology of the future! Awesome find Bsuds.

Bitumen balls.......what next? Those multinational oil corporations will stop at nothing to expand tar sands production. I'm sure they have more than enough bitumen in storage now to pave another Trans Canada Highway. Why don't they just use some of that to send overseas, rather than digging up more of the environmentally-destructive crap?

I can't help but recall the episode where Kramer pushed the bladder full of oil out his window and blamed it on the intern.......but still could be really cool if it can work large scale efficiently.

I suppose you don't use any products that are products or bi-products of this ? Of course you do. Try not to be a hypocrite.
