Fun With Oil Spills

Another day, another failed attempt by BP to stop the Gulf oil spill. Oh well, at least its not in our back yard, right? But wait! With the help of the nifty website If It Was My Home, we can see what the oil spill would look like it it were taking place in New Mexico. (Huh. Sucker covers Las Vegas, Espanola, Albuquerque, Grants all the way out to the Arizona border.) For fun, you can even move that big, oily blob around the globe. Heck, stick it over England, home to British Petroleum. See what that looks like.
