BP claims the leak is capped.

we'll have to just wait and see.

perhaps we'll never know, since all we DO 'know' is the info 'they' give us...

but i cant help but feel that many here may not be ready to let this go, even IF BP has managed to cap this.

i mean, come on, werent you hoping this would be an ELE and you could go out and shoot zombies?

just admit it...

this gives your life meaning, right?

Just because there is a cap on this and it is holding now, doesn't mean this is over.

I want more than anything to see this fixed and cleaned up, but what happens if there is a bad hurricane?

The relief wells are still a little ways away and we don't know if they will even work yet.

i guess there is a little percentage of disaster-porn addicts, but important is noone made himself. everybody is a product of influences and circumstances.

I will admit that I just want to shoot zombies, but that's just because I'm just in love with that EOTW scenario


Otherwise, I'm just sitting back and relaxing until it all blows up(literally or figuratively).

So you are saying that people cannot control the way the perceive and process the influences around them? We are just mindless beings floating in the wind, unable to control our thought processes. Maybe you might want to rethink that.

what i am saying is, if you look at the life of a serial-killer, how he was treated as a child and what influenced him.
my theory is, if shi# happens to you, its hard to become a "good" and lawful person. for that you will need "good" influences. if you dont, bad luck, huh ?
i understand the relatives of the victims, that they want revenge, but they shouldnt be blind to circumstances the killer was brought up in.

Being brought up under bad circumstances does not forgive improper behavior. There are tons of people brought up under horrendous conditions that became good people.

people get off on disasters because there is nothing they can do about them. they become complacent, and know they can just lay down and not have to take part of any of it, and that others will for them. big brother, government, whatever. anyone that enjoys this # loves just sitting around and bein told what to do. they don't have to think about anything productive or positive.

with understanding there is the possibility of forgiveness.

because they had good influences aswell, enough good influences to keep them on "track".

i dont think you will find one killer that had a good childhood, nobody is born bad.

To Icepack, according to the church we are...

I will be perfectly honest here.

I am a paramedic and spend my life helping others that find themselves in dire need but deep down inside I wanted this to blow up, but not in the 'Seabed blowing Up' kind of way. I mean some way that would blow up in the faces of BP so that lessons would be learned and they are seen and punished for what they have done. I have no desire to see people suffer but at the same time if this is a successful cap then BP will just try and sweep this under the carpet until the next time.

Saying that, Always love the Zombie thing - least we have a say and are ultimately in control of our destiny and would not be reliant on some Uber corporation doing it for me. I cant help but think that deep down the chain of events are going to be 150% out of our hands


Just to clarify, I do not want this to do any more harm than has already been done. I do not want countless 1000's to suffer at the hands of BP but I DO want BP to seen for the people they are - I cant help but feel this will not happen because BP will pay some fines, compensation and all will be forgiven.

Its happened before, It will happen again

your argument is sound, for the collection of people who's lives are centered around an extinction level event, as you put it

however

i would like to point out that there are alot of people that live in the gulf, like myself, who no longer can swim in the water of their own back yard, no longer can enjoy the same beaches that they moved to the gulf to be so close to..

my point would be, although your statements are sound for the few, the majority of those so emotionally involved in the situation are so because this is something that truely is changing peoples lives, (in many ways)

i k now that is not the purpose of your thread, or anything that you even mentioned or are argueing for or against, i just wanted to point that out since i thought it was relevant to keep in mind, the distinction between the two

To Icepack, according to the church we are...


how come ? a baby has not done anything wrong, so is not punishable.
what kind of laws are that ?
i remember, a couple of years ago, roman catholic church had the doctrine, if newborns die before they are baptized, their souls go to hell. well, actually the waiting room of the hell. now they changed this rule in their doctrine, and not-baptized newborns souls go to heaven. i mean human people decide that?

oh, i agree completely. i was in mississipi after katrina serving food. came back a year later to help rebuild homes for 6 dollars an hour.

i have family on the east coats of florida who do what they are told, and believe the MSM. I worry for their kids. but in context. i mean, they raise their kids a christian conservatives who believe the earth is a few thousand year sold, so i worry about that, too.

and my connection to the region makes me upset by those who post threads with ALL CAPS declaring ZOMG-sea floor collapsed, gulf being EVACUATED. these people are doing more harm than good, and they need to be called out for it.

instead, the few of us who dare call them out get called apologists and BP shills.

its pitiful

Here is a video from another thread. Please take 4 mins of your time to watch it... when your finished please ask yourself. Even if the cap holds and there are no further issues with the actual leak. Do you think this situation is "over"?




The Gulf waters are finished. It will take decades to recover from the amount of oil and corexit and everything else that is now in those waters. The Gulf stream travels up the coast and out into the Atlantic Ocean. Do you really think we can contain the water and stop it from traveling out into the Atlantic Ocean? This is not rocket science. This is common sense. We can even experiment with this idea. Get a baby pool and fill it with water. You can use any fish tank pump, place it in the pool and create a current. Now take 1 quart of oil and pour it in. Give it a 5 minute head start, and then try to contain it to one small section of the pool. You will fail and the current will cause the oil to travel and your entire pool will be contaminated. Then keep in mind, we only used 1 quart of oil in this "test". The Gulf has been leaking for 80+ days. We have been spraying corexit above and at the source for 70+ days. There are reports from Texas and Mexico, all the way to Florida of oil washing ashore. The fish bowl that we call the Gulf Of Mexico is now full, and all that stuff is in the Gulf Stream and currents. You really think just because BP capped the well that this is over and everything is ok now?


That's what I call being short sighted.
