It just occurred to me that the oil pockets1 has a function2. And it makes me wonder what happens when the pockets, now without raw oil, should start doing something? Do we have any idea what their function(s) are?

Maybe it’s obvious. If so I’d love to be enlightened.

I also see that it took me almost a month to write a small something. :P


  1. For lack of a more precise term I use oil pockets for the underground pockets containing oil before we pump it out.

  2. To be precise I should say the oil pockets probably have a function, because I don’t know. But seeing as nothing in nature is waste or useless - I take the liberty here of saying it has a function.
