Hah, you are reaping what you have sown on that one. Foxy already admitted in another thread to having a hard time catching sarcasm due to not being a native English speaker.

Oh yeah I did not realize Foxxy had caught on?

Hey Moose,,,,,why am I a mile behind? What are you referring to? I will agree if you just give me the subject, maybe you think I am behind on the BP spew? If that is what you think then that is fine, could be true.

Oncearunner, stop while you're only a mile behind. Merivel dropped you faster than Tyson dropped Spinks.

BP's saying they're guessing as to how fast this oil is leaking out, but I'd wager they have some idea that there's a gold mine flowing out of that well and they want to capture it.

If they plug the hole, they're out hundreds of millions, of not more. If they capture the oil, they stand a chance of recouping some of those losses. So, I'm guessing they're done the math and they think it's worth the risk and extra cost to go for capturing the oil. Environmental and social responsibility played no role in that decision, I'm sure.

camel toe your post is a day late and a dollar short as you should have noted before in my post. @ 16:00 all operations in the Gulf of Mexico will have to stop by presidential order. The Little boy atomic bomb will be dropped into the riser from a B1bomber at high altitude. All this will take place at 17:00.

Cameltoe lol.

Earth to Cameltoe: The relief well they are drilling, or any well they drill in the future into the same reserve will produce that same oil. When that well is capped doesn't mean that reserve is unreachable.

Plug the hole vs let it spew in the gulf and capture the oil else the oil left in that reserve is gone forever if capped. :rolleyes:

You're a frikn idiot. Go hole up with your buddy Maribel in a cabin in Idaho, taking pot shots at the enemy outside of the window while Sarah Palin and Michael Moore take coordinated dumps on your cabin out of the black helicopter hovering above.

As soon as his confused a$$ about the politics behind watered down regulations meets up with your utopian bleeding heartspeak he will be turning his vengeance on society against you. It will be a loon on loon killing. :D

Dude do you understand that the guy you are proping up will turn around and eat your liberal azz?

In addition to the fact you have no Fing clue what is going on except some **** you and USS Bob Levirem are going to sink in a pool of self induced vomit when you realize that the clue you got from the papers was just a hint into what the hell is actually going on under the gulfs surface.

Next time your Camel Toe wants to show try something like a loose fitting pancho. Use that instead of spandex which just highlites your flab.

I don't think so. 5000 barrels per day times 23 days is $8.625M. That is a drop in the bucket compared to the direct cleanup costs so far, which BP says are more than $400M.

Sucking up the oil at the source of the spill is a lot easier and cheaper than attempting to skim it off the surface. More importantly, the less oil, the less environmental damage. The civil damages will be astronomical. Anything BP can do to reduce the damage will save lots of money in the end.

Oh, no. I've been insulted on the internets. :D

Look, I'm sorry Merivel b!tch slapped you and everyone here knows it. But hey, toughen up.

Because I have no idea what the hell you're talking about. Are you angry because people take daily dumps on you? Are dingleberries sticking in your hair?

At least you are smart enough to realize you don't understand WTF I'm talking about, which is a little surprising. After the "BP wants the oil to flow into the gulf so they can get it and sell it" post of yours I was beginning to think breathing was a mentally challenging exercise for you.

Opening Pandora's Box...Oil Well.

If not stopped soon and stopped intelligently, the effects of this "gusher," engulfing the gulf, are about to dramatically change all of our lives, no matter where you live on the planet. Fortunately, or unfortunately, we are all in this together now, whether we want to be or not.

The spill may turn out to be 70,000 barrels a day, which brings us closer to $115M or more for 23 days.

Interesting...BP...new logo was "beyond petroleum" and they do NOTHING but this, oil...said no more than 5000 barrels a day released....Obama administration has been saying the same thing...backed up BP to no end via what they are telling us... come on folks get with the mind...turns out it is 70,000 a day...welcome to modern demoncratic politics...I say this as a leftie...

If you have no idea where to begin, that would mean you have no idea. If you have no idea, what are you trying to say?

Russian's drilled on land. 40,000 foot well. You might not find that on Google.

Did I say "Lava?" 2,000,000 pounds per square foot of "volcanic-like" pressure blew, what we will call, the main valve. That info came from someone I personally know in the "oil" world.

Russian experts suggested a week or so ago the use of a nuclear "device."

In fact, a number of countries said they would come to help and the U. S. refused their help!?!?!

Did I mention that BP had the wrong diagram to close the blowout preventer?

Listen, if you have any other answers/solutions to this catastrophic dilemma, I'm/we're all ears.

in addition, there are these issues-

Methane hydrate threatens more than the oil-spill cleanup

Documents suggest BP, Transocean and Halliburton ignored tests indicating faulty safety equipment, says committee

The Cover-up: BP's Crude Politics and the Looming Environmental Mega-Disaster

The Price and Who Pays: Updates From the Gulf

Lessons From The Gulf Of Mexico

Lawyers: Rig workers asked to sign statements

Is Gulf oil rig disaster far worse than we're being told?

Bottom line, it's a mega clusterfv<k... they don't know how to stop it. The pressure is too great and at almost a mile down in the ocean it's a logistical nightmare.

So, rather than stating "you have no idea", what would you suggest they do?

The "oil world", has not that recently come to include all of us?

Most definitely, but also there is a question of motive. Does this (my, yours, ours, theirs) motive "support" life or "damage" life? I have a gas combustion engine that takes me where my bicycle doesn't. Does it pollute? I suppose so. To what degree? I really don't know to what degree. Would I drive if I felt that the action would destroy life so that I may gain something personal?

I think the point that you bring up is good. But the "oil world" that I was referring to is that world where individual/corporate success is based on accumulating power and position, through selfish and greedy motives, regardless of the consequences to the environment. We are seeing a whole new level of destruction to our environment with this Event in the Gulf. In fact, it's hard to comprehend why this particular "gusher" was created in the first place and why it has not been stopped in over a month. (Where are our priorities?) This is not only a crime against humanity, but to all living creatures big and small. I will even go as far as to say that this Event was NOT an accident (An unexpected and "undesirable" event, especially one resulting in damage or harm). THAT is the "oil world" I am referring to. One of unprecedented corruption, never see before on the face of this planet. Did you watch the video above, "BP Fails Booming School 101 Gulf Oil Spill"?

This Event will dwarf the economic turbulence presently enveloping our globe. It will not be an isolated incident that only affects the local region. Everyone's lives will be influenced, directly and/or indirectly, and it won't be good, unless one perceives "good" as working for Haliburton on the decades long clean up crew.

What's interesting to me is we in the US, the greatest consumers of oil, only care about the environmental damage when it affects our country. For instance, read about the environmental disaster in Nigeria. We honestly couldn't care less. Just keep our gas prices low.

There does seem to be some karmic justice though in that the damage is happening to the states most likely to support the right wing and their drill baby, drill mantra.

The Iraqi Oil spill/Sabotage in the Persion Gulf is still the worst spill after the US and UK invaded by a long way.

Its sort of linked in an ironic way. Now a moneygrabbing British company has ****ed up big style so theres gratitude for you, so maybe they BP or the US should get Iraqi experts in to plug this thing and call it quits.
