The Blob

A lake of ooze is moving around under New York City. Blbg Blog observes.

The subterranean Brooklyn blob represents "more than a century’s worth of spills, leaks, and waste dumped by oil companies" – and it's "pooled into a vast underground lake, more than 55 acres wide and up to 25 feet thick." Not only has it infiltrated the region's water supply (don't worry: they pipe water in from the Catskills), but it means you can set the soil on fire.

Which goes to show every cloud has a silver lining.

Luckily, NYC has very little soil.

Well, except for that HUGE block of green in the centre called Central Park.

It's not psychokinetic, is it? You know, "mood slime"?
