Fracking Fluid Soaks Ohio - Businessweek
Quote:
The nationwide boom in hydraulic fracturing—aka fracking—means energy-extraction companies in the U.S. can produce thousands of barrels of oil and millions of cubic feet of natural gas from once-inaccessible places. They’re also producing something else: oceans of brine from drilling as well as fracking fluid, the chemical-laced water used to blast open cracks in buried rock where fossil fuel lurks. That wastewater has to go someplace. John Kasich, Ohio’s governor, isn’t sure he wants his state to be it.

The preferred way to dispose of the brine and fracking fluid—typically a stew of water and a long list of chemical additives, including rust inhibitors and antibacterial agents—is to pump it out of sight, out of mind into deep, cavernous wells built for the purpose.

Can't ban gay marriage in Oklahoma? Republican solution: ban all marriage.

I think he's on the right track actually, get government out of the relationship business altogether.

The bathroom is the most dangerous room in your home, as an OKC man found out when he was hit by a car while he was taking a bath Sunday afternoon.

Cornhole is apparently where it's at. I was in San Jose one and when a local found out I went to an SEC school, he was like, "really? Did you tailgate? Did you play ... cornhole?" all giddy and conspiratorial and excited. Like this: :excited:

Wow, dude. Wow.

Ettore Bugatti built a plane in the 1930s, a sleek fast airplane, which was hidden away in a barn during the German occupation of France. It never flew in his lifetime.



A Tulsa-based crew is nearing completion of a replica Bugatti 100P based on the original specifications and reverse-engineered mechanical designs. The original was powered by twin 450 horsepower 4.9L straight-8 engines and had a theoretical top speed of 550 mph, which would make it one of the fastest propeller airplanes ever. The original resides in a museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. They are soon sending the replica to a museum in California, where it will be in display with Bugatti automobiles.

Come listen to the story of an Okie nameless,
Poor homeowner, after a squirrel being a pest,
Climbed up in his attic and fired off a shot,
A man working outside, he missed him not...
This is not the ending,
Charges are still pending.

The squirrel can still be heard laughing.

I know exactly where this house is, drive by it all the time, but I don't know the moron with the .22 that dwells therein.

Anonymous prankster paid $9,700 restitution to Myriad Gardens to pay for restoration of the slimy green water that was there before the bright green water. No charges are being pressed.

The United States Geological Survey has issued an earthquake warning for Oklahoma, the first ever for a state east of the Rockies. The warning says there is an increased risk for a quake over 5.0 magnitude in Central Oklahoma.

Mind you, I didn't twig to it until someone in another forum posted a link to another article from the same "news provider".
