When talk of global warming started gaining some credibility,
thousands hundreds dozens looked to Kevin Costner’s Waterworld as a harbinger of things to come. And I assumed I’d never hear any more about it until a rakishly handsome boy was born with gills.
But it seems Kevin will make fools of us all. You see, Waterworld was never meant to be a real movie but rather a clever ruse to obtain the technology necessary to separate oil from water. And after the terrible oil spill in the Gulf, everything’s coming up Costner.
AOL News reports that the machines he developed during the making of Waterworld work faster than existing models, clean 99% of the water, and actually produce usable oil. Way to go, Science. You’re getting beat by The Postman. Step your game up! He was in Swing Vote! Have some shame!
And, at the risk of this sounding like a comedy bit, AOL is still around and has news? And, presumably, cub reporters just trying to break a big story on Kevin Costner? Why am I saddened by that? Do any ‘Jibans still use an AOL account and, if so, is it literally a steampunk-style series of tubes?
Aw heck, I don’t mean to poke fun. There’s just no “Lost” news left and I have to fill time before the finale.
