no doubt the nuke advocates are very disapointed. I wonder how many of those people who wanted to see a nuke go off actually lived anywhere near the gulf coast.

Im in the UK and the reaction of my 3 friends when i told them the nuke idea was "hell yeah nuke the focker". When i told them it might not work and could cause a bigger disaster they said "even better!! its nowhere near us so we'll be ok"

This gulf leak has been the longest rubber neck in history. Its exactly like when you drive past a car accident you just cant help gawping at the carnage "ooh that looks nasty glad it wasnt me"

Personally i love a good disaster the gulf leak gets top marks for endurance its just gone on so long. Of course im the other side of the world wouldnt want it in my back yard. I also like tsunami disasters & hurricane katrina was excellent. Apocoliptic footage of houses up to the roofs in water- brilliant. Looking forward to a big quake soon maybe we'll get the "big one" in san francisco or LA this year

i think theres alot of fake anguish & hand wringing in this forum. I guess people come to forums to let off steam they can harang the companies involved , criticize the gvt response , cry fake tears for the oil covered dolphins etc

of course its terrible for those involved but im not this time
I can rubber neck this one like most others who visit this forum.

one thing that has dispointed me is the lack of oil covered , i mean caked , beaches & animals. Not enough coastal impact for my liking. Still its not over yet.

i find it interesting how the lust to see disasters and catastrophies comes to live.
first of all, i have to admit, when i am bored or down, a "breaking news" is exciting and changes my boredom.
what makes a human being lustful to these kind of news.
must there been a great amount of personal suffering in someones life, or is it the other way round and you are likely to be affected, when your life was alright but not exciting enough.
or is it the lack of motivation, goals in life.
when i was younger, i was much more active with all sorts of hobbies. in that time i didnt even watch news, too busy.
so i say to myself, dont wish for "exciting" disasters, try to get busy with other stuff. things that fit my talents and interests.
i have to fight my boredom, and not wait for something to happen what changes my mentality.
because, if i dont nothing will change, it just stays the same. and that is what i dont want, being dependant that bad and "entertaining" things happen to other people.

No, not disappointed. Never actually thought it was. I do not really want me and my family to die (of course we will someday). I think just a couple of threads have mentioned that this might be an "extinction level event." I think you can go far less and it is still very bad. And yes, I think it is already very bad.

The base of some of what "seems" like disappointment that the well may be contained is not, in my opinion, that the well was contained but that BP is getting away with something that they shouldn't. Whether or not the well is contained is really immaterial. The fact is that we will all be paying for this in one way or another for a long time. BP will enjoy anouther 25% increase in their stock price as bailed-out banks, perhaps at the direction of the FED, buy up BP stock.

Most of us probably believe BP should receive a death sentence for what they have done. BP should be liquidated. But it won't be. And that, in my opinion, is where the anger is. BP will go on and not have to truly pay. And inevitably the taxpayers will foot the bill as we always do. It is a tired old scenario and a massive moral hazzard for this country.

Do you think this situation is "over"?

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.


And you are responding to me? When have i said its over?

I just dont think its ZOMG! the end of the world oh my goodness!

Go ahead, admit it, some of you will feel empty without this drama in your life.

As others have stated, nobody sane who has felt or is aware of the pain that this has already caused could wish for anything but a swift and complete recovery.

That said, wallowing mentally in total-disaster scenarios often seems to soothe people having difficulties coping with "normal life" for any number of reasons. And let's face it, who doesn't? In an imaginary disaster scenario, the various frustrations of a complex society -- everything from red tape to worrying about money to the daily grind to keeping up with the Joneses, and so on -- seem to be all wiped away at one stroke and everyone appears becomes equal on a much more basic level. Suddenly the petty annoyances are eclipsed, so doom can be a tempting daydream.

The problem with this, of course, is that people don't take into account how much more horrific the disaster would actually be than the petty annoyances. And people have this twisted, media-informed view of what a total disaster would be like. They always imagine themselves being the lone survivor and hero, standing triumphantly on the ramparts of the sandbagged bunker, etc. etc. Instead, try imagining a much more likely scenario: Day one of TSHTF, you get shot in the face by some frightened idiot who you happen to run into as you flee through the streets. Your lower jaw is completely blown away. You live on for a little while in tremendous agony, with no painkillers, sanitation, or medical attention. You develop a severe infection and rot from the inside before strangling to death on a bone fragment three days later.

Or, even simpler, you slip while running and twist your ankle or dislocate your elbow, etc. Another "survivor" grabs your bugout bag as you are writhing around on the sidewalk. Unable to move, with nothing but the shirt on your back, you cannot get to a safe place. Game over.

It is just that everyone is so sick of all the bs that goes into state and world government, They want change so bad they are willing to root the deaths of millions if that means change. Problem is it wouldn't be the change that is needed.

There is only one way to institute change at this point. Vote every incumbent out of office the next few elections. Every single damn one, even if it is your uncle. We have to do it now, before they steal the whole country away. After a few cycles of this you will only have people running for office because they will want to do well for all the people. Without enrichment the life long politicians will go elsewhere to steal. Hopefully soon after, the new statespeople, acting in the interest of all the people, will cut off those routes of abuse as well.

If you are old enough to vote, but don't, then you are a big part of the problem. At this point there aren't many good candidates to cast your vote for, so make use of your vote to simply say that elected officials will not be allowed to feed at the trough and yto take away any possibility that they can do it for any period of time if that is their motive.

Just do it people or stop coming here bitching about what our government is doing.

It is not over yet.

What about compensation for the fishing families on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico?

Funny. I tend to think those who post stories wildly out of context, start threads about MASS EVACUATIONS that arent actually occurring, trumpet poorly executed 'scientific' tests as 'evidence' and unleash a barrage of personal attacks on anyone who dares to remain objective are the ones with sick minds.

Not in a rush to destroy people especially if people I love are illed by infection. I wouldnt count my humans before they animate!!!

How so, to be so tormented on this planet where some have to hope for destruction to cleans this evil that trapps them.

You will be suprised how close this ZOMBIE SCENERIO really is... Its not a joke that the sea has been poisoned and now since noone can see the poison everyone feels things can be taken lightly, many forget their shall be an EYE for an EYE and humanity poked out the GOM so whats next for humanity for destroying so much of the sea.... I just seen Anderson Cooper on cnn last night acting all confused and actually sayin he may have over reacted even after this was declared the worst man made issue in history now again since no oil is seen its all a joke....

OP you really may be getting too comfortable with the calm before the storm I must say this as its only fair..... And the Zombies are fast enough to chase you so I dont see the humor.... HADES is real and when this Pale horse rides there will be NO DEATH so is this speaking of Zombies???? Also I personally believe there is something down in the GOM that shall eventually surface and allow everyone to see whats good and whats bad. PEACE

Last what happenes when all he people like you OP who can take this situation so lightly begin to listen to the media and othe orgs say the GOM is clean and the fisheries can return to fishing AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC BEGINS TO EAT FISH CAPTURED IN THE GULF AND INJEST THEM LOL @ THE CALM.....

VENUS
