Oil leak off Mumbai coast has stopped: Coast Guard sources http://apocadocs.com/s.pl?1281403790

Oil leak... pesticides...what a delicious elixir!
Maybe some giant sea monster will be created out of this toxic combination and wreak havoc across the planet, humbling the human population to change its profligate ways.... Hey, I can dream!
