I'll be honest. I saw something once and the confirmation was so enthralling (read: terrifying) that I couldn't move. It felt like I was literally glued to the ground. I didn't think about grabbing my phone in the maybe 30 seconds I had to do it, it made me reevaluate life, bro. Like, 30 seconds of philosophy on the meaning of life, my purpose...Just everything. I couldn't tear my eyes from it.
It isn't like casually talking about the subject on a web site where you have as much time as you need to make your point. When it happened, I don't think I was capable of making that choice, tbh. It blew my # mind. So, I understand why they don't have proof. I'm not attempting to sway you one way or the other. I am saying if you haven't had an up and personal view of something like this, it's harder for me to properly describe the sensation of it to you.
Mine was a black cube in a cloud in SE OH, btw.

No one is doing brain surgery offshore in a work environment...good grief.
Yes there are dangers, no different than being a carnival ride operator...
Skilled people have A LOT of time...i know.
he craft rose up out of the water (Gulf of Mexico) about 40 feet, no water was dripping from the craft. Within a split second the craft disappeared at a 30 degree angle into the sky. Speed appeared to faster than speed of a light turning on in a room. Within seconds it had disappeared completely.
I can say for sure that the craft was dark colored, oval in shape and made no sound whatsoever.

I'm sorry but I can't see what the amount of leisure time they've got has to do at all with what we're discussing here. I'm not sure what you're getting at. They might have all the time in the world, but that does not change the fact that electronics are not allowed outside crew quarters on oil rigs. Were you trying to make a point about a different subject??
