I love sensationalistic journalism ....always using "tons of water" to get a higher shock factor number

5,000 tons of water is only about 1,200 gallons.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53977898

You may love it, but I'm ashamed to see an American flag by your name. What "Murika"?

5,000 tons
x2,000 pounds per ton

= 10,000,000 pounds
/ 8 pounds per gallon

= 1,250,000 gallons

The 5,000 tons figure is for average people like you who don't understand math. 5,000 tons sounds like nothing compared to 1,250,000 gallons or 4,750,000 litres.

("it"'s not an american), trust me....

same addy that chimes in with atom-boy from time to time to add an "american" perspective and support ... *cough*
