BP Oil Spill

so as most of you know i am in the oil industry... it sucks when there is an oil spill and the company responsible doesn't know how to fix it; it hurts the entire industry. my company has not had a drop of oil spilt in several years. in their defense everyone expects them to fix something like this overnight, and that isn't how things work out in the Gulf, especially on a new well that was not completely developed. drilling is the most dangerous part of the life of a well. keep in mind they are working in mile deep water with mangled tubing. you can't just send a team in scuba gear down to fix it.

i'm not going to make this a thread on what they should or should not have done, cuz i have too much of a sense of humor for that.

but in a nutshell, this is what ACTUALLY happened:

I dont know what to say about this !

Actually whoever came up with this is sick but a tad bit funny.

Creative you may say however maybe they can think of a way to clean up the mess.



I sure wish they would quit showing the pelican covered in Oil and the bird just frozen there in the middle of the mush. Yeah Yeah it tears me up seeing that **** go ahead call me soft hearted.

Enough pointing fingers lets just fix the ****.

Amazing we can stick someone on the moon , we can clone sheep , we can do **** in the aerospace industry that if yall knew you would Freak but we cant fix a dam oil leak. WTF

I cant even watch the NEWS because of this.

The well broke. They'll fix it. End of story. Beating BP up is just not going to solve anything.

...it DOES make them a GREAT investment while their stock is down. 10K buy in BP stock, coming up!

Yep, that brings the collective IQ of the beltway to..

Could be worse.. I hear Cali is still trying to figure out how many zeros are in 100 for their budget..

Obama said that this spill was going to take years to be fixed
he also compared it to 9/11 for some reason.

Because referring things to 9/11 has become an easy way to get a knee-jerk reaction from the public.

The gov't cant run a whore house worth a crap. What makes anyone think that they are capable of capping a leaking well? The last thing we need is the gov't calling the shots here. Let people who have the tech and the money to fix the problem fix it.

I'm tired of hearing the gov't say that BP isn't doing enough fast enough only to watch them turn around and talk about how the gov't red tape is bogging down the whole operation.

I thought one of the rules of this website was no political discussions???


"Commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream closer."

Commitment= attending college
Action= graduating
Dream= graduating college with a new Camaro
