I'm beginning to think some people are getting to involved in this live feed.
I'm just waiting to see a heading of,"Demon faces in the Plumes".


Just-in
People every are staring into BPs live feed and becoming zombified.

If you look at both Skandi ROV 1 and Enterprise ROV 1 you can see quite clearly that something is tilting and I doubt it's the ROVs.

You can also see on Enterprise ROV 1 that there is some thick metal cylinder thing that seems to be supporting the tilt, anyone who knows?

Something like this

When they don't have that fan going mixing all that oil and dispersant up, it actually looks like they are collecting a lot more of that output than a couple weeks ago. But, I started wondering, is it because they are actually collecting more or this:

We know the BOP is tilting. Now how could that be? Well, assume that the pipe and surrounding cement has cracked something like 1000 feet below, possibly completely severed. Now, as that BOP starts tilting one way above, the other end of that pipe will be tilting the other way, separating from the pipe below that point. And far below where this is happening, some of that oil and gas could be leaking out below. How much and to what extent I suppose depends upon the surrounding Earth, is it rock, or what?

Anyhow, I wonder what pressure that oil is wherever the pipe is cracked. You see, high pressure liquid can act like a water jet cutter. I don't know what pressure is required to cut through and erode rock, but I know you need 30000 to 90000 psi to cut through heavy metals. Of course it has to be finely focused to do so, but you could probably get that affect if it's seeping into small fractures and cracks, and lower pressures should be able to cut through rock.

That thing is going to tip over eventually if the part of the well it's attached to is severed completely, and if it isn't severed completely yet, the surrounding Earth support will eventually erode away and it will keep tilting and until SNAP. It's like how water mains that break underground can eventually erode everything around it away until a sink hole opens up and everything above falls down inside. Scary. It's a race against time with those relief wells.

Nope, it's not the ROVs.

Nah, there's nothing to support it with, not that kind of weight. That's not firm hard ground below. You couldn't shove a pole in there to kept it from tipping over, it would just shove the pole into the ground. It's going over eventually and it's just a matter of when.

Yes, they seem to have fixed/moved Skandi ROV 1's camera back to a more useful focal position so now we can see more of what's going on instead of that brownish blur.

Skandi ROV 2 is showing some good images right now. It's mainly focused on the upper section of the BOP and its more recent attachment and this view gives us a chance to see more of the actual outflow.

The fact that these ROV assets are still in place and functioning suggests that at this time the watching experts do not expect that the BOP is about to go over. That doesn't mean it won't, of course, but considering the consequences if it does, they would want to get their assets out of there well in advance. Ditto if any of their observations of the sea floor indicate a likely catastrophic failure.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if they have other ROVs and assets in place to monitor these possibilities but haven't made them public. We'd be worse than fools to believe that they are sharing all their imagery and other data with us.

rov1, just now:



live, it seems to be surging and bubbling with more force than before the earlier *explosion* of today.

it definitely looks unchecked.

I haven't seen the feed in a couple days but it looks like it contains more gas than before, but could just be the angle or something.

This is freaky to watch. Sort of mezmerizing in a stomach-churning way.

I remember a t.v. commercial, a few years back that BP put out... it was talking about how they can find oil deep beneath the surface of the ocean. They showed an animation of a platform, and a thin hair like strand gently probing into the sea floor. They made it look so simplistic.
I felt weird watching it.

They definitely moved ROV1 not only back a ways but also to one side. This appears to be a different angle to the original location it monitored the flow from.

If anyone was watching earlier this morning lol - when I woke up from my desktop and saw the images I posted - they'd have seen what appeared to be cyclonic forces whipping all around with oil drops congealing into the camera lense every few seconds. It really looked like peering into a tornado!

I'm wondering how we're even able to watch all of this.I mean,they are pumping dispersants directly into the flow,right?

So,wouldn't there be alot of oil and gunk all around the camera blocking our view?...or am i missing something?Surely it wouldn't all go straight up and away from the scene would it?

The surrounding area looks way too clean to me....But yeah,i haven't looked at the feed in a week or so and it does look alot worse to me.
This is the link i use....

It's really freaking out now... Flow is very intense, feed is spotty... I think the bop is going to blow out completely by 7 days.

Wow, it is really bubbling a lot. This is the most I have ever seen it bubble.
Maybe it is a good thing is bubbling though. The gas is at least escaping. If a lot of it gets trapped in a small area, then it would explode out, but right now it is still bubbling away at least.

According to a recent Houston chronicle article... You could very well be right...



A report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Monday noted research vessels found natural gas seeping from the sea floor several miles away from the well. Those appear to be pre-existing seeps that occur naturally, a NOAA spokeswoman said, and unrelated to the spill.
But the longer the well flows uncontrolled the more likely it is that the well casing could be damaged or the blowout preventer damaged further. Sand and other debris that flows through the pipes at high velocity can wear through metal over time, said Van Nieuwenhuise.
The chances of the well eroding from underneath and the blowout preventer tipping may seem unlikely.
"But everything about this well has been unlikely," said David Pursell, an analyst with Tudor Pickering Holt & Co.

What the heck is that?

Methane bubbles covered in oil do have an oddly green glow about them.... But the green in your links looks almost like antifreeze...

thats what i thought. they only zoomed in for a minute. It is obviously something they wanted to monitor. looks like a canister from teenage mutant ninja turtles.

Right now it looks like them ROVs are preparing things down there so they'll be able to quick disconnect and pull out of the gulf if .. (no, scratch that) WHEN .. when those converging tropical depressions and a hurricane moves in. I've seen them working on that manifold down there, removing the choke, etc. We may never get to see that BOP tip over and the sinkhole open up to begin the oil and methane volcano. After that happens, they'll never be able to get back out there to work on a damn thing, the methane will prevent that. Man, imagine what a lightening storm mixing things up with methane blowing all over the place will be like, oil washing up with the storm surge. Fires, everywhere, never ending .. the skies will turn black, and the machines will have to take over the world and enslave humanity and turn us into batteries. .. TEACH!
