He called at night, so I'm thinking it was at his home or cell, how would he get that number?

That may be how.
Don't you think engineering experts would also know about plumbing?
Do you know what engineering is? It's designing something that does not yet exist. If there's no plumbing involved in the final plan, why even
think about it?
There are some good engineers out there, but there are no "experts" when it comes to engineering.
Besides, I don't see anything about the cap that's novel.
From the article: "BP has received 300,000 ideas from around the world for how to cap the well after decades-old methods failed.
I'm not an engineering "expert" and never will be. I'm also not currently a plumber. I do, however, have a mind toward engineering, and I have
to agree, I also don't see anything about the cap that caught my attention, mainly because I've never seen one before, I didn't see the design
specs. compared to previous designs, and I've never been asked to design a new one. But who's to say you need an engineering degree to come up with
a good idea??? (Also, what were they paying those engineers for if they couldn't think of anything new for not years, but decades???)
Perhaps they are using some type of tech which they don't want released to the public.
I haven't yet read much on this, but I do believe its use has previously been banned in other nations due to them finding it's effects left them in
a pretty $#!II^ situation.
I guess what I'm trying to say here is that any problem one runs across, throw minds, not money, at it. One mind gives only one result. Many minds
gives many results to choose from.
Who cares where they come from.
