  1. Oh man, where to begin?

    THAT’S ALOTTA OIL!

    VENICE IS IN UROP LOL

    WE CAN GET OUT OF IRAQ NOW LULZ

  2. We can has HFC-powered vehicles naow?

  3. Man, you guys are fucked.

  4. Goodbye sea life in that area. So much for the fishing/crab boom Louisiana had after Katrina.

  5. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    Can we be like China and execute all the CEOs of the companies involved in this fuck-up? I heard Halliburton is involved.

  6. It’s all over the news that the obama administration was on the job ‘right from day 1′. Good thing too, or this oil slick might of gotten really BIG !! Oh wait, it IS really big.

  7. bella venezia?
    dio mio!

  8. Sonofa… anyone got a big wet/dry vac?

  9. At least the boats don’t need to worry about fuel – just skim it off the surface as they go along. :D

  10. The best part in all of this is they started having problems weeks ago and BP did nothing about it then. The rig was going down for over a week before it “exploded” and killed everyone but one person. Now there is some cockamamie “fix” being fabricated that will funnel the oil.

    • the BP platform was drilling for what they call deep oil. They go out where the ocean is about 5,000 feet deep and drill another 30,000 feet into the crust of the earth. This is right on the edge of what human technology can do. This time they hit a pocket of oil at such high pressure that it burst every safety valve all the way up to the surface thus causing the rig to explode and sink. Flat out this was a true accident. BP was using the pinnacle of oil drilling technology and it wasn’t enough to prevent this from happening. It’s not the governments fault, it’s not BP’s fault. It was an accident.

      Reminds me of The 1969 Santa Monica oil spill, when a rig 50 miles offshore had a blowout fouling up 30 miles of SoCal beaches. That was the end of offshore oil drilling in California, despite the massive reserves.

      • Accidents and fault are not mutually exclusive concepts. There’s the whole idea of negligence. This event is the very reason why some people oppose offshore drilling in the first place. Especially when we’re pushing the limits to exploit a well like this one.

        I can’t even conceive of what the long term effects of this will be, but it’s going to dwarf Valdez by several magnitudes. How the hell do you clean oil out of marshlands? Louisiana is still trying to fully recover from Katrina, and this is going to destroy their economy. On top of that, anything that gets shipped along the Mississippi is going to skyrocket in price. Shrimp already went up 2$, and that’s on the wholesale end. All this, and we’re still in the ‘figuring out what the hell to do about it’ phase. The actual solution could take months to years to execute, with this well pumping out 200,000 gallons a day in the meantime.

  12. “It wasn’t our accident, but we are absolutely responsible for the oil, for cleaning it up, and that’s what we intend to do,” BP Group CEO Tony Hayward told NBC’s “TODAY” show.

    Transocean is to blame so they say.

    “What has failed here is the ultimate safety device on a drilling rig,” he said. “There are many barriers of protection that you have to go to before you get to this. It isn’t designed to not fail.”

  13. BTW…. Ultimate FAIL

  14. This is seriously fucking up my Southern Louisiana experience. Last time BP was blowing up refineries in Houston and now this shit.

    Oh and now I’m going to have to pay top dollar for decent sea food or buy the chinease garbage which fucking sucks and tastes like rubber.

    Also all the fucking fishing this summer is ruined, not to mention thousands of fishermen are out of the job right when the season opened up. They were just BLESSING THE FLEET last weekend too.

    This would not have happened if Obama did not order FEMA to blow up the levees.
