  •  The flow colors - what are we looking at? (6+ / 0-)

    Someone correct me please, but are we looking at the bend in the main pipe at the top of the BOP as it kinks away from the ROV?

    Assuming we are - then we're seeing the oil flow from the cracks in the pipe at the kink... so doesn't it follow that there's an even much larger hole at the end of the pipe spewing oil?

    The colors of the flow that we're looking at - the center is dark, the edges are lighter - are the edges the "mud" stratifying along the outer edges of the pipe, sort of 'squeezing' the oil more toward the center?

    Thanks.

    I want to move to the alternate universe where Gore was the President... anyone know the address?
