A supply glut in combination with bottlenecks between fields, refineries, and tankers in the once-independent Republic of Texas, has enticed unknown refineries to blend cheaper (and poorly-characterized) cutter stock into their bunker fuel products to hit viscosity numbers, damaging fuel systems in northwards of thirty vessels in the Gulf region (archived).
No interest has publicly been expressed by oil insiders on the numerous shambling cryptographic provenance solutions in search of prolems and customers; but this has not deterred Team Cockchain ("Smokin' it!" ™®) from announcing eleventeen different projects to disrupt this massive industry from their mothers' basements.
In the most recent chapter of "I can't believe how far they'll go to undermine their own credibility!", Jeff Bezos' Amazon Washington Post artlessly deploys the passive voice in its coverage of provincial stotting and other chimp activity.
A brief review of what passes for videography courtesy Maggie Vespa KGW1 in the service of American Journalism shows that where JBAWP reported "counterprotesters shouting at the driver", violent leftist elements clearly lobbed improvised ballistic lols at an iconic American landscaping vehicle (0:09), prompting its hasty retreat from a hostile work environment.
