bubble gum (not the actual chewin stuff, but the same compound of stuff) is used in oil spill cleanups, because some technical jargon stuff of the oil attaches to some other technical jargon stuff of the gum because they both share some kinda technical jargon stuff in the compounds...? (I dunno, i saw it on the discovery channel...)
