    Halliburton were supposed to have pumped the cement at the wellhead, which failed. BP complained in 2011 that Halliburton destroyed evidence.

    That's not the story we got, though. The original story was that the floor hands failed to stop a gas kick.

    I refuse to drink any wine that doesn't have a screw off top.

    Bah, if taking out the cork wastes too much time getting to the joy juice, I just whack the bottle neck on the counter. Quick and efficient.

    Lay SOME of the blame on Halliburton, perhaps. Not all evidence was destroyed on the rig. Much of the paper trail that was destroyed by the company was off the rig. Depending on what was discussed in the documents, what test results were shredded there could have been criminal charges filed. That's why i feel those who destroy evidence for higher-ups need to be charged and charged hard, get them to flip and let's show the world even guys in 3K suits are not above the law.

    You have to admit- 11 men died and it is all an unforeseeable accident according to the oil service companies- does seem a bit of a stretch.
