    That's what I figured, Coronado.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It's going to fall into a few catagories when the fit hits the shan. First off, who was responsible for rig maintenance under the contract, that's gonna be between BP and Transocean. The next issue is going to be if all safety protocols were followed, that is going to fall under the contracting company more than likely. Next is the extent of human error or negligence, a couple of people familiar with the industry are telling me a natural gas bubble well could have hit the lines and blown the entire rig, the way that thing went up we are lucky that only 11 men lost their lives if you want to call it luck, may they rest in piece.(heard a bunch of reports, but from the sound of things those guys were in the core and didn't have a chance) Finally, who did what is all going to come out after the investigation, but this thing has the potential to become a litigation nightmare for both companies.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Now they're saying it's spewing out much more than they were saying.

    I hope it doesn't affect the FL panhandle. That's our beach.

    I don't think its predicted to. They are saying it will hit the nearest coast tomorrow. Here is the latest spillage projection...

    How can you guarantee that? Oh you mean this particular kind of spill? But could there be different kinds of spills and leaks?

    Sure there would be spills, but they wouldn't be gushing for days on end below 5,000' of water.

    Reminds me of something Obama said just a few days before the spill:

    It turns out, by the way, that oil rigs today generally don’t cause spills. They are technologically very advanced.

    What you think they don't think **** through and make multiple contingency plans?

    1: Continue work on oil cap.

    2: Begin building secondary drill site 10 miles away, drill into original site from new location, apply cement, have a cigar.

    3: Use common containment methods to control the spill.

    4: Light the spill on fire and burn off 98% of it.

    The situation's under control.
    Whew, I'm glad it won't cause any environmental damage or kill off millions of animals. Good thing you were here to alleviate all our fears.
