What does /x/ think of this?
Some blob of black sludge has apparently been afflicting a town in Venezuela
OP only posted this to collect x-files reactions, no doubt.
What we're really all here for:
So a country known for immense reserves of shitty heavy crude with an incompetent workforce and no standards with regard to the environment or safety and which has essentially no economy to speak of at this point due to retarded communists and being led by a bus driver has thick black shit leaking out. Gee I wonder.
I read that TIL on Reddit as well. The comments make it clear: the "millions spent on researching the goo" is govt. corruption. The goo is most likely asphalt seeping out of the roads, or seeping from the MASSIVE TAR SANDS FIELD that sit above the various towns this is afflicting.
Damn, she is still hot.
And it's composition was described just through the physical senses of people. The only description of any analysis done was "hurp durp organic and synthetic materials lie within", which can be applied to literally any kind of ooze that didn't come out of a laboratory. So it's a mystery that's only perpetuated by people who seem to not really want to delve that deeply into what it is, else they'd have done a serious chemical analysis on it by now.
Not saying that it's unimportant or important. It's still black stuff oozing onto the roads and their governance doesnt seem to really care, so.. mystery forever open
Dubs confirms... Yet /x/ plows onward with 'theories'....
I just don't get how with all the "millions of dollars" and consultation with other countries nobody hasn't taken a fucking sample and did some fucking chromatography or NMR or some shit on it. I mean, come on.
