Toxicologist Dr. Riki Ott explains that the outbreak of terrible-looking rashes afflicting Gulf area residents and visitors may stem from the explosion of oil-consuming bacteria.

Residents suffering from oil and corexit exposure may have a compromised immune system, making them vulnerable to the bacteria.

In other news, Greenpeace reports it plans on sending a submersible down to the "spill" site to evaluate what the heck is really going on. THANK YOU GREENPEACE!
