---Has Sir Charles Schultz ever tried to install a sprayer head on his garden hose while the water was on? My spigot before my regulator puts out over
120psi. There's no way it can be done, so how's he suggest we install that over-thought and surely over-priced valve tree? My idea as of 05/18/2010
was to just install a valve, though at that time I did not know there was a flange after the BOP, so I thought one would have to cut the pipe... which
would be time consuming if the riser's flange can be removed.
---I don't think he thought of it. I don't think anyone is thinking. If they were, they'd stop calling in the arm-chair mechanics & call in the
---My assessment is, for some reason, they don't want to stop the spill of oil.
---Furthermore, I don't know if it is so BP can recover all this "unmetered" oil that even they say cannot be estimated, how much has spilled or is
spilling. If it's not going through a counter/meter, I guess they can make any claim how much oil they recovered... even if it is 1/10th of what they
really recovered... or maybe plumes will be like storage for them. Maybe it is so Obama can force us into being self efficient, which in regards to
that topic, it is my belief that even when British Petroleum (which BP had changed their name around what 2004?) , there was nothing brit about the
company other than the name and Michigan's Blarney Castle Oil's owner being a McCarthy & having a foreign address to use when applying for export
---Screw all that though. I am about fed up with this BS. I didn't know about the spill until the day before the fire went out! Two days later I had
found the site where you could UL your suggestion. Since then I have ULed/sent this suggestion to at least six places in total.
Three times to BP at the bogus deephorizon's suggestion site

-Oh yeah (sorry about my rambling),
---And not a single person has replied, nor have I even received an automated response. So, I say, no one wants to shut it off because if they did, as
a plumber of sorts, the first thing they would think of is installing an emergency shut off valve, which is the only part of the BOP that isn't
working. The BOP is not damaged. The BOP is not leaking.
Blow Out Protector
= an Anti-fire device, regulation in all marine application where flammable liquid/gasses are used/stored. AKA a flame
arrestor - Same as what you would have on your vehicle, opposite your PCV valve.
---Straight and simple, if the flammable substance(s) ignite, it is a check-valve or restrictor that prevents the flame/burning substance from
entering the well... or on your car, the crank case if the engine backfires. The BOP worked, the check valve worked. It's the main valve... or
electronic diverter solenoid (of sort) that didn't close the main valve, shutting off the flow. Changing the valve would require a new BOP, but the
BOP is fine... so add a new valve after the one that wouldn't close originally!
---The coastal US didn't explode, therefor the BOP itself didn't fail!
