Now BP gets their saw stuck

To add insult to injury BP has now got the diamond saw they were using to cut off the riser pipe stuck. All I can say is been there done that. But in my case the only one I couldn't get unstuck was a core drilling bit that binded up on some rebar. Even the boss tried to get the thing out for a couple of hours. We finally gave up and drilled another hole but BP doesn't have that luxury. And from the sounds of it BP will be doing the same thing by bringing in another saw. Hate to say I told you so but they should have just crimped off the pipes coming out of the BOP. They have the tools.

The gang that couldn't shoot straight

But all is not lost. I had an Ah ha! moment and it occurred to me they got Kmart smart and were thinking with their dipsticks Jimmy! And remember ladies you know well and good what happens when men think with their dipsticks. There can be nothing but trouble. Guess if you can't ram a pipe into it then just cut it off.

They should have hired Bob Vilia to do their cutting. Scratch that,Norm Abrams would be better.

How about Tim Allen? Argh! Argh! Argh!

Some are now saying that it may be Christmas before it gets turned off, and that by then life in the gulf will be dead. A few of course are saying that it may never be shut down until it runs out and they don't know how big of a reservoir they've tapped into.

Anyway, the gulf thing is just a few frames of a much larger interplanetary movie and looking at the whole of the movie is what is really spooky.

See what happens when you don't buy American. I'm sure they bought that saw at Walmart..

The rest of the movie is just as bad as this. By Christmas? No maybe longer.

Wal Mart? No sounds more like the Dollar Store.

BBC said...

Tim, you can't buy much that is made in America, unless you want bombs and other war making stuff.

Even American cars have little to do with 'Made in America'.

Say, can you spare me a few bombs?

The Dollar store here is going out of business, that kind of surprised me. But we do still have the Dollar Tree, maybe this town is too small for two dollar stores.

Why not roll after roll of duct tape? It's not just for saving yourself from bioterrorism!
