For those that haven't seen it yet, there is a good program on the Discovery Channel covering the response from day one to present. olnolan

i dont need to cry any more about it than i already have. i have been watching this mess every day. bp will be a thing of the past, and the devaluation of their stock is going to be another Enron/Bernie Madoff adventure for the Brits. (no i don't have stock)

you can bet your ahhss that their big wigs in charge who are to blame will get their millions tho. they need to find the bp guy and the trans am guy who had the argument as to whether to shut down the well right before it blew up and get the name of that bp guy who ordered them to proceed, and cut off his nuts

cnn used to be pretty good about it, Anderson cooper esp, UNTIL he decided to make his show a re-hash of the rig workers interview he did. now i dont watch him anymore when he gets into that cause there's nothing new.

oil leak in the gulf

Not being an engineer, but while can't they slide a balloon (bladder type) down the pipe and in flat it to stop the leak. It doesn't appear to be high pressure coming out, maybe 30 to 50 psi. a balloon on the end of a stiff pipe should side right down the pipe well below the top end then be inflated with a hundred pounds on nitrogen which wouldn't burn and expand closing off the flow.

I've been doing military honors for the past month and been doing a lot of traveling, this past weekend I was up in Odessa and Midland Texas. This trip we stopped at the Petroleum Museum in Midland. They had a lot of history there and a lot on how they used to stop leaks, I think that BP should make a trip up there to rethink what's going on. Non the less they sell oil drop shaped stress balls there.

They estimated the psi @ 9000.
