    What did I just ****ing say?

    Alternatively, BOPs are designed to stack on top of each other. Can't they attach another BOP unit to this stack and flip the switch?

    Watch the video, Slick. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the stuff coming out of the pipe is lighter than water. Alarmist bias? You really are a piece of work, aren't you?

    Hehe, "Slick", nice pun.


    The water density that pressure produces means even nuclear submarines are "lighter than water".

    Perhaps you should learn something about buoyancy, and also how unequal pressure can move objects.

    Yes. Apparently, the effort has failed.

    You don't have a clue about bouyancy,r pressure or water density. Submarines are lighter than water at the surface too. They float until their ballast tanks are filled. A piece of steel has the same bouyancy at any depth. Water is a incompressible fluid.

    Oh good, you Googled something. Keep on going, I'm sure with time you might actually have something to post.

    You do know that the "mud" being used is oil based, right?

    I gave you a link because you always ask for one. Where do you get your information, anyway? You are wrong about just about everything. It's like you just make things up hoping no one will challenge you. You have proven you know absolutely nothing about this subject so you might as well move on to another thread.
    Please do some research before you make even a bigger fool of yourself.

    It's like you have a list of lines and you roll on a random table to determine which lines go into a post

    The last time you tried to demonstrate how I was wrong you were quickly silenced. Care to go again
