Well, I am. I almost – almost – got misty watching this video of a toddler/baby hearing his mother’s voice for the first time, after getting hearing implants for his deafness.
I, however, would not be such a sissy if I had the chance to use a mile-long robotic arm to grab the chairman of BP and jam him into the hole leaking oil in the gulf, thereby solving two problems at once.
But just when things seemed truly dire, there’s a hero on the horizon. Director James Cameron who, like, knows about underwater equipment and stuff because he made “Titanic,” and loves the environment, on account of he made “Avatar,” is being consulted by the government for ideas he may have over stopping the oil flow. The idea that Cameron may know more about shutting down an oil leak than a giant oil conglomerate that we let do pretty much whatever it wants off our coasts, is beyond incredible – even more incredible than the New York Times reporting that there were more than 13,000 golf cart injuries in 2006.
Just imagine what happens if Cameron solves the problem. They won’t be able to get his ego inside a blimp hangar. He really will be the King of the World. He’ll never buy a drink in New Orleans again … which suddenly makes me want to study-up on oceanography.
