What to do with the clippings – part one

What oil slick?

Whatever happens come Friday, there’s likely to be a considerable amount of leftovers, so what can be done with all that hair?  Well, it turns out that a decade or so ago NASA decided to try to use human hair as a way of cleaning up oil spills.

I’m not sure what happened to the tests, or if it’s something BP even considered, but if you’re heading down to Alabama and see a distinct lack of rats tails and mullets, it’s probably fair to say that this was up there with all of the other “successes” thrown at the oil slick.

Voting is still open until midnight on Thursday.
