I'm sorry for the lost of personnel and for their families, pretty sad especially since this is the first incident that has happened in a very long time. Kind of funny that it happened 3 to 4 weeks right after Obama approved off shore drilling....makes you wonder if there's a conspiracy in this....

you know when you F*&K up so bad it can be seen from space... you F'ed up BAD! My condolences go out to the familes of the drill workers though, i'm sure they did everything they could. SO i don't know if you guys read about this but Russia has had 5 of these disasters and they fixed 4/5 of them with small nukes lol, sounds like a good way to retire some of the weapons we are getting rid of anyways.

It's nice to see people and friends with something nice to say

The job we do is not a easy one everyday we risk our lives to bring these resources out of the ground 24/7, I was on a yahoo msg board, and some of the stuff I was reading just made me want to ***** Slap someone to hear all the conspiracies about how this was just a stunt to raise gas prices! The only thing we need to worry with now is containing the blow out, and pray for the family and friends of the 11 Roughnecks we lost!

My thoughts and prayers are with those lost on the Deep Water Horizon!

My thoughts exactly, If fuck1ing pisses me off to see the stupid shit posted on this subject trying to turn it into a political matter. I work the oilfield and feel insulted everyday reading the shit the media post not knowing a dam thing there talking about. Eleven men lost there lives trying to contain the blowout and save the the other 115 men onboard, There true heroes because they knew there fate staying up there to fight the blowout. No one wants to talk about that because it can't be twisted and turned into conspiracy or bad news.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

Reports are that it was a huge methane gas bubble that did it.
