Voice Post: Hydrofracking
126K 0:38
“Hey, it's Megazone. I just felt like sharing something. So, I'm driving down I-190, and there's a pickup truck for some company, I didn't really catch the name, but the biggest text painted on the side and back of the truck was "HYDROFRACKING". And, as a Battlestar Galactica watcher it really made me kind of lose it. I managed not to drive off the road. I'm pretty sure it's some form of drilling, but I'll have to look that up. I just thought the phrase "hydrofracking" sounded somewhat dirty after having watched Battlestar for the last couple seasons. Thought I'd share, bye.”

"99% of the time, wells begin producing more water after hydrofracking."

That other one percent? They breach the Earth's crust and cause a massive volcanic eruption.

Even thought your other readers have told us what it means, it's still funny. I have to work the word into everyday use: "Well I'll be hydrofracked!"

And then, when people ask "... you'll be what?", you can take it to the next level by grinning cheerfully and saying, "High-pressure water will be pumped into me to increase my yield."
