How could an object so small contain $65 billion in water? Any water it contained could be unusable to to contamination.

Maybe they should try to catch it and pay down some of the deficit. Thanks Giana

Keep the damn corporations and their political whores, the Republican/Teabaggers, away from it! They'll frack it, mine it, burn it --- what ever it takes to turn it into a profit! You know it is amazing really, but for all their "we don't believe in science" BS, they sure don't mind making a profit from it.
