Parn I am disappointed in you. They're killing more than dolphins, y'know.

Instill Earth's utter disparity of a world that rends its own flesh with more dead species than dolphins ok.

After reading Part Thirty of Xenogears: A Rope of Robots (In which our heroes come up with an impossible plan, and the villains very reasonably take issue with it.), I realize that BP is Xenodurr. Newsflash, JRPG logic does not work in the real world and even in JRPGs themselves, JRPG logic is highly prone to failure.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100601/ap_on_bi_ge/us_gulf_oil_spill_872 (Yeah, this makes Citan's plan with mirrors on the opposite side of the world from an unpredictable laser operated by a hotheaded teenage king, a distraught altar-boy, and a fluffy Japanese mascot seem like a good idea.)

I've said this in other posts about this topic(not here), but I remain baffled. Why is there not a shut off valve somewhere on the line just in case something like this happens? Because they didn't want to spend the money on it? Baffles me.

At least Panama City will probably economically ruined. If there's something good that'll come out of this, it's that.

And you actually take Meshie-poo seriously?  Granted, he is a janitor (AFAIK) so he probably knows how to clean the oil but no one will listen to him because he's "only" the janitor.

That bitch is insane, but also hilariously entertaining.

I really am surprised this has been so hard to fix.  I mean granted I know nothing about oil drilling and stuff, but you would think we could do something...at least use some damn duct tape....

Sarah Palin is a self parodical joke.  She's fanatically ridiculous, but she plays up to the heated emotions that all Americans feel about life right now.  Never underestimate the power of an emotionally charged and completely irrational angry mob. 

Serene Prophet- it's like I (well mostly my dad) said, the know-how, ingenuity, and technology to fix this mess (or at least minimize damage) is available and should have been employed.  It's just that BP's too damn cheap to do those things (just like they were too cheap to put in a few basic fail-safes in the first place) and we're beyond band-aid fixes.  You know, penny wise pound foolish.  We're at the point where the best bet is to "amputate" and implode the damn rig.  It's already the worst spill in history and is killing the environment AND the economy. I already predict that other oil companies will somehow use this as leverage to raise prices, claim another oil crisis, and charge upwards of $6-$10 per gallon of gasoline for cars.  

I hope by then I get a sweet job that I can actually ride my bike to:P

I'm sure Parn would be able to provide informative links for the subject, but as far as technology goes, the thing is that the only way the drilling technology has really progressed is how deep they are able to dig down into the water. Very little to no progress has been made in cases of disaster and fail-safes for decades, because the only thing people bother funding research for are the things that will eventually lead to more profits (The same can be said of any other businesses like medicine).

That's what this all boils down to- profits.
