The Gulf Oil Spill

In 1988 I was in Saudi Arabia after a tanker sunk in the Strait of Hormuz. I saw first hand what oil in the water and on the beach looked like. It's mollasses meets gorilla glue that looks like cow droppings and smells like gasoline. Stepping on one hidden under the sand is particularily unpleasant and yes its near impossible to wipe off.
