In the, “you never know,” file, log this one, there’s MORE oil in Texas! Yes, geologists say a new survey shows an oilfield in west Texas dwarfs others found so far in the United States, according to the US Geological Survey.
The Midland Basin of the Wolfcamp Shale area in the Permian Basin is now estimated to have 20 billion barrels of oil and 1.6 billion barrels of natural gas, according to a new assessment by the USGS.
No word yet on when US forces are planning to invade to secure the oil resources.
Did you hear about that recently discovered tribe in Brazil? Yes, aerial photos recently taken in Brazil’s remote Yanomami indigenous territory found a ‘lost’ tribe hat is estimated to be home to around 100 people.
The village, which is close to the Venezuelan border, has a typical Yanomami ‘yano’ – a large communal house for several families that can be seen in the images. Each of the yano’s square sections is home to a different family, where they hang their hammocks, maintain fires and keep food stores, according to tribal advocacy group Survival International.
Strangely, while the tribe has been cut off from all civilization for thousands of years, locals on the ground reported that the tribe was well-informed about Hillary Clinton’s email problems over the 2015-2016 news cycles. “We don’t have emails, but we understand they are very bad things for some reason,” said one member of the tribe.
President-Elect Donald “Walking Corruption Machine” Trump was in the news again this weekend, as his failed Trump University settled civil claims of $40 million for $25 million over charges of defrauding students. Trump University regularly scammed working class students out of tens of thousands of dollars for real estate courses created by Donald Trump promising riches that failed to deliver.
In response to this, the media spent most of the weekend talking about ‘Hamilton’ and whether or not theaters are safe spaces.
