If explosive just make the hole bigger,
And we get 600,000 gallons a day,
what do we do then I ask.

How big is the total
reserve, and how
much pressure
is it under?

What they would do is place an explosive device in a hole AWAY from the hole and hope it moves enough earth to stop it

sounds better than shooting golf balls at it with a prayer "junk shot" I bet they haven't even tried and failed at that yet, they're so damn slow...
