The 1995 documentary film Waterworld depicted manly yet sensitive Hollywood hunk Kevin Costner’s battle with the Exxon Valdez, and its crazed captain, as the leaky oil tanker spread destruction all over the water (world). Also Costner had a device that extracted fresh water from urine—a device much like the Ocean Therapy machine developed by Costner’s brother Dan and his fellow-scientists, from seed money by the actor, which uses centrifugal force to extract oil from water, and which may soon be deployed to clean up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
