I ain't two computer illeitijckrwate.....hang on...I'm cranking up smell checker...or is it "spell checker???"......

 

Anywho, a post appeared earlier today that was a hoax.  Some tuna fishermen claimed to be directly underneath the DWH rig shortly before it exploded, and sent in a moving narrative about their experience.  Problem was, they took a picture of the rig they were fishing under.  Horse hockey, it wasn't the DWH.  Based on responses by alert readers, it looks like some internet wizards spliced some fishing footage with some captured vid of  the wreck. Top that off with somebody helping with some oilfield terminogy, and it painted a realistic picture for a while....'til the chickens came home to roost.  Have you ever look at the deposits chickens make directly under the roost?  'Nuff said...

 

Here's the deal......

 

Curtis ran with this because I sent it to him. He has a product to sell.  That is free enterprise and the free market that some laud as our rise, salvation, and resurrection.

 

The free market system is based on greed.  "I wanna find the most oil with the best lease and I wanna find it first!!"

 

If you run an internet site dependent on hits and sales, you wanna be the first to post a "hot" story.

 

Here's the beauty about the free enterprise system...BP has a s**t load of money, and they are motivated by the value of the escaping oil to fix the problem and fix it quick.  It's a lot of oil.  It can't be measured.  But as they report 5,000 bbls/day, and if its true, they drilled a dry hole, based on a natural decline curve.  (Hint hint!!!  Nothing in the media about decline curves!!!!)

 

BP ain't gonna put they clothes where the water can goes and drive off.  They may or may not be "good corporate citizens" and "do the right thing" even if it breaks the bank.  Let me assure you from my personal perspective that doing the right thing economically is in the long run the best thing for the enviornment.  "Drill, baby, drill" VS "Spill, baby, spill" will be in the news for a long time.  They got their sound bite. 

 

Before you decide who you want running this leak containment, think about this.....how are you gonna feel 10 years from now when you decide to drive to the local market for a pork chop to grill, get stopped...... try to explain your craving for a grilled pork chop, and get arrested for "needless consumption of hydrocarbons"....  Think about your teenage children who will "cruise the main drag" on Saturday night because parents are "SO BORING"....and they just want to escape.....

 

Folks, if you will give me the power to arrest everyone who is burning fuel without a LEGITIMATE purpose, I will end our energy dependence.  We are rapidly giving our government the ability to defind LEGITIMATE.....And Bill Clinton couldn't even define what "is" is................

 

Location, location, location......the best location in the world is the United States of America....

 

Lifestyle, lifestyle, lifestyle....how many of you can say you don't use resources selfishly, needlessly, and in direct disregard for the "greater good"........

 

Curtis made one significant mistake.  He trusted me to review this and edit it for him.  Not my job.

 

But this brings us to another question........An experienced company man can make an embarrasing boo-boo on an internet site, right?  Well, that's the same SOB that makes decisions at the rotary table that CAN have an impact on your survivability on the rig, and the lives of your loved ones.

 

To recap, Curtis could have done better by reviewing more closely. 

 

But I place blame on the first one to FU......and if you don't understand the full meaning of "FU", please call me at 318-780-3920......

 

I sent it in and I wish to bear fully the responsibility......

 

If you wanna know what really happened, don't piss me off for this lapse, first by me, and Curtis by association.  While I make my mistakes, I keep on chuggin'.....and I have s__t in my head that will stand the test of time.......

 

Come work on my rig.  I promise to do better......clean underwear at the end of every shift....cool water in the can.....lots of hard hat stickers........pipe tally books galore.....free gloves if I see you wearin' out the last pair and picking up the good ones somebody else threw down because they were free.....But if you finish your 8 or 12 and if you're grinning from ear to ear....and you don't have hash marks....you ain't been puttin' out.......

 

 

Ramblin' here........

 

Deeper--------It's like having Santa Claus for a company man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Can I apologize enough for this mistake???????????????   Deeper..................
