May I ask what that has to do with anything? Because all I see is a completely off topic post... what does that thread have to do with this oil disaster at all?


The aliens are angry coz we messed up. They're sending hate-mail, but we are too stupid to translate it. Something to that effect, or they're letting us know they're on their way to come help out...

I think he is under the impression some intelligent life from outer space is coming to "save us". Which would also probably mean that he thinks this oil spill is TEOTW.

Well I thought of that, but if he's serious and that is what he's implying then I find that a bit... odd to say the least because from my understanding these signals have been being sent for a long time we just we supposedly 'not looking in the right spectrum' - but I will agree that we have screwed up big time here with this oil catastrophe - if ET life was going to come help us (if they haven't already and aren't working with the government
) they'd have come during WWI or WWII considering the nuclear components in the latter specifically.

But it would be nice if ET's showed up, cleaned up the oil mess, and handed us some crystals that could power the whole planet for 1000's of years


But, I doubt that will be happening anytime soon...

Edit: Check this out - you used the acronym TEOTW for the end of the world, and I decided to do TEOTWAWKI for the end of the world as we know it. Tee-ut-wah-wuh-ke
I don't know why I'm posting this, wah-wuh-ke just reminds me of some Japanese word, I believe it's shoes?

Does anyone know, the accurate, estimated amount of oil spilling per day into the gulf, in barrels is? CNN claims its about 5,000. Yet I have heard other sources claiming up to and greater than 50,000. So which is it?

5000 barrels = 210,000 gallons a day, is the estimate I keep hearing.

You are joking, right?

If not, then I ask you to attempt to just 'walk away' from a air gas attack. Just...walk away from the place it came from...try it sometime.

The stuff spreads out. It's not like dolphins talk to each other on cellulars and then plot gps coordinates, and specific travel plans for the community. It's more like their very air was poisoned, and all their food.

I do wonder exactly what purpose oil serves in the Earth. There must be some reason for it's being present, and presently produced, as, I believe, it is. Maybe we'll find out.

A short while back I saw powerful geysers, in a dream. I know that oil does a great job of redistributing heat, as well as being a natural lubricant. It does not make a lot of sense to waste it by burning it, especially as few other things can in fact, lubricate. Synthetics are expensive etc.... Maybe the Earth's oil is needed to keep the core's heat in check? Maybe we'll all find out some new things. 'They' won't tell you. You have to figure it out in spite of their misinformation.

It would start on a friday and we would stay home and protest all weekend.

And the Big Oil "drill baby drill" folks will point fingers at Obama for letting them drill off shore. While Sara Palen hosts a environmental show on discovery channel causing noise pollution with her mouth.

I have always wondered what the purpose of oil is on this planet. What is its natural purpose? I have never found a decent answer to this question. It seems like a meaningless thing that we have decided to make useful for gasoline, but it doesn't make sense. There are so many other, better, re-newable ways to produce energy. Oil just became the main thing because it was the best thing to make money. So does anyone know, what the real purpose of oil is? What happens when all of the oil is gone? Will that affect life on this planet as we know it, or is oil really meaningless? Not only that, but how is oil produced? What produces it? Where does it come from? We find oil fields all around the globe, but why? Everything else in this world, has a purpose, and is essential to our existence, what is oils role?

I didn't get a chance to read the entire thread, so if someone already posted this idea as a possible solution, then I apologize in advance:

This may sound overly simplistic and may even be ignorant, but why can they just lower a huge flat mass over the hole?

I mean very big, like a football field size(at least) of solid steel or something like that, just use a bunch of huge boats to drag it out there, then get the lat/long from BP and lower it down, if big/wide/heavy enough i would think this would plug it up no?

They would probably have to drag the sunken rig over to the side first tho as I assume the rig is over the hole...



Well since an entire fleet of fishermen have lost work and are in the poor house with the rest of us thanks to Big oil, I guess they can all sell their boats to stop the oil super volcano.
joke

To make a football sized "cork" made of steel just would not be practical because we do not have foundry's to cast something that size. Let alone our cost of steel is outrageous as it is due to a economy in ruin caused by the very same power elite that owns BP and our way of life or lack of. A nuke would not just carry radioactive fallout traveling in the current causing the fishes to mutate just like the mutagen did to those ninja turtles. Maybe some new species will arise from the sludge and take over the planet and dispose of the power elite "wish full thinking"



Someone also mentioned "The aliens in the ocean" or the USO's that we have heard so much about. Good point. If these aliens "indigenous to earths seas" can disable nuclear warheads and shut down missile silos and prevent us from destroying earth. Or Steven Greers good guys. Well then they better get on the ball, or you can expect a scenario much like Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home with the last cetian species "whale" in jeopardy and alien intervention.


Maybe this is Disclosure


But seriously this is not good at all in any worse case or minimal scenario.

It started off as a legitimate a recourse but then the combustible engine has been obsolete for decades. Oil companies dictate to vehicle manufacturers if we can afford a hybrid let alone an electrical car or even a car that runs on dog feces. The problem is not just them it is our complacency and defeatist attitude of "things will take care of them self" and in 10 years we will have cars that fly just like the jetsons. Well some may be aware of suppressed technology from said oil pigs. I dont know if some guy has a cold fusion rector in some deep underground base but when you look at what these Big Oil pigs have done to force us to consume their product it is probably true.

It is more about power than money because they have a million lifetimes to live filthy rich and they will not be able to take it to hell with them. But they are power mad point blank. They want to pass the dynasty on to their children but they really do not think long term these people. Their children will starve and die with ours even.

That is one of the best set of questions I've heard asked.

Scientists cant really determine the natural use for Oil... as far as how it impacts the world.

My assumptions have always been that it plays a large role in temperature and the way the earth handles energy waves being directed at the earth... but... We'll never know!

Well in theory fossil fuels come from dead dinosaurs and plant matter. So when you think about it the Asteroid that killed the dinosaurs turning them in to oil may have had a more sinister long term goal. If true that is one crafty space rock

"BP is also constructing a collection device —a 67-tonne concrete-and-metal box — that would cover the wellhead and channel the oil gushing out of it to a barge on the water's surface. But that device won't be ready for another seven or eight days, chief executive officer Tony Hayward said Monday."

Thus said we should all hope this works. If it doesn't then it's game over man, GAME OVER!!

Oil may reach Loop Current within 24 Hours


GULFPORT, Miss. – Scientists say the Gulf oil spill could get into the what's called the Loop Current within a day, eventually carrying oil south along the Florida coast and into the Florida Keys.

Nick Shay, a physical oceanographer at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, said Monday once the oil enters the Loop Current, it likely will end up in the Keys and continue east into the Gulf Stream.

Shay says the oil could affect Florida's beaches, coral reefs, fisheries and ecosystem within a week.

He described the Loop Current as similar to a "conveyor belt," sweeping around the Gulf, through the Keys and right up the East Coast.

Shay says he cannot think of any scenario where the oil doesn't eventually reach the Florida Keys.

At the very best this is going to get very bad, a true nightmare scenario.

So folks have suggested bombs and submarines to block the hole problem with those ideas is the hole is at 5000ft and over a ton /in2 of pressure. neither will survive the trip down. The concrete cap idea could easily lead to a blow out somewhere else on the ocean floor if any back pressure is created.
The oil is going to hit the gulf stream even if it quits gushing right now, which it has no chance of doing. crunching the volume numbers ,while helpfull to a degree are not as important as coverage area. A large amount of oil in a small area is far less harmful than a small amount over a large area and this leak is positioned to carry the oil into the gulf stream and from there up the coast of N Am and down the coast of Europe and Africa with a gyre of unmoving oil collecting in the Sargasso sea area.
In all the prospects for the Atlantic are very grim and could be compounded by the oil interfering with evaporation and transportation of the heat which drives the N.Atlantic current.
Speculative repercussions I admit but ones with a relatively high degree of probability.

So these big cheese companies should be shelling out thousands of relief dollars to contain this or start cleaning up the mess or put some sort of relief efforts in the works ASAP? SOMETHING????

These companies know the gamble they take when drilling, they should be held liable and hit where it hurts! In their greedy pockets! I do hope a solution is found quick.

What ever the cost it will eventually be the consumers who pay for it. I would be happy if they just put the CEO and Executives in jail for 10 years.

The only way to stop the corruption and dangerouys cost cutting these compainies do is to make the guys who get the 25 Mil bonuses pay for failure. Buck stops there. We start doing that and we can get back to be a civilized society.

What Revelations Say's


Revelation timeline - The Four Horsemen and Beyond

Prophetic timeline compiled by Tony Gosling, Bilderberg.org, 0117 944 6219 Tribulation events foreseen by apostle John in Revelation. Quoting extra material from Timothy R. Phillips in the End Times Bible, World Publishing, and Barry Smith.

Whether or not you believe apostle and gospel author John's roller-coaster Revelation is 'God-inspired' you can be sure of one thing; fanatical Judeo-Christian Right, war-hungry leaders & other fakers are looking at it closely, so that they can compare their own plans and reinterpret the shocking events of Revelation. They are using the media to spin themselves as the good guys. See racist 'Zionism' for example.

Four events that signal the beginning of the end of the world

In the first century, the apostle John's day, the noise of galloping horses' hooves hitting the ground inspired fear. It was the ominous sound of an enemy's approach. So when John described four horsemen who would begin the process of unleashing judgement (tribulation) on the earth, the familiar but awful sound of approaching horses would have been ringing in his readers' ears. In Revelation 6, John describes them. The first rides a dazzling white horse; the second, a fiery red horse; the third, a black horse; and the fourth, a deathly pale horse. Each one has a mission related to the Passover lamb's (Jesus') breaking of the first four seals of judgement up in heaven.

During the Tribulation, two pairs of opposing human figures are set to feature prominently in world affairs. The antichrist (eg. Revelation 11:7 and 13:3) and false prophet (Revelation 16:13; 19:19-20; 20:10), satan's political and spiritual world puppets. Opposing them will be the two witnesses of God (Revelation 11:3). Many will cry out against God - they do not or will not understand that the anguish of the seven seals, trumpets and bowls is necessary to forever banish evil from the world.

1. White Horse (First seal - Revelation 6:1-2) A pyrrhic military victory witnessed worldwide (Iraq?)
2. Red Horse (Second seal - Revelation 6:3-4) A bloody World War III escalates
3. Black Horse (Third seal - Revelation 6:5-6) Catastrophic global economic collapse causing massive food price inflation.
4. Pale Horse (Fourth seal - Revelation 6:7-8) A quarter of the world's population is wiped out by disease & famine. Wild animals devour the bodies.
5. God hears the His martyrs crying out for justice and decides to intervene at last against abusers of mankind's free will. (Fifth seal - Revelation 6:9-11) *
6. An enormous earthquake. (Sixth seal - Revelation 6:12-17) The sun turns dark and moon turns red, wrath of God has come and people run to the hills.
7. From the spirit realm 144,000 Children of God are marked and protected. (Seventh seal - Revelation 7:1-8:1) Loud trumpets prepare to sound - now the serious business starts. *
8. Hail, fire and blood come down to earth. (First trumpet - Revelation 8:7) All of the world's grass is torched as well as one third of the world's trees.
9. One third of the sea turns to a dark-coloured poison. (Second trumpet - Revelation 8:8-9) One third of world's fish die and one third of ships sink.
10. Nuclear contamination falls to earth (Third trumpet - Revelation 8:10-11) One third of the rivers and springs are now poisoned.
11. The sky dims, turning a third darker, and daytime is shortened by a third. (Fourth trumpet - Revelation 8:12-13)
12. Strange flying scorpions with men's faces spend five month stinging those who are not spiritually marked out by God. (Fifth trumpet - Revelation 9:1-11)
13. Two hundred million horsemen, commanded by four angels, wipe out a further third of anti-Biblical humanity. (Sixth trumpet - Revelation 9:13-21)
14. In the spirit realm satan realises his time is up. (Seventh trumpet - Revelation 11:14-14:20) Hoards of deceptive demons released creating havoc for m
