Bigger than Rhode Island

This has been all over the interwebs this week, so I’m playing along:

This Google Earth tool allows you to lay the oil spill* over a familiar piece of the Earth to allow you to grasp the size of the spill. Here we see, it is bigger than Rhode Island.

* Notice how I can just say, “the oil spill.” I don’t really need to describe which spill do I?

    hee hee…I think it’s graduated to “bigger than the size of Delaware”, which every Rhode Islander knows, is the SECOND smallest state in the Union!
