    BP tells him one thing per day. Today it was 10,000 bbls.

    It rubs the loofah on its skin or else it gets the falafel again.

      I just heard another, lower, estimate that about one third of the oil is being captured, using the 6,000 bbl capture - 19,000 flow estimate combination.

      My gut tells me, based on the sheer weight of the oil in the new riser and what I'm seeing on the feeds, is that less than 10% of that oil is captured.

      I'm Moving On . . . .

      sourcing that Oil Corral idea Eric Lewis had a few weeks back.
      They are doing it over on Twitter. Do you have an account as they are calling for input from guys like yourself. That is if you are interested?

      Those folks who are trying to get in the way of progress - let me tell you, I'm just getting started. I don't quit. I'm not tired; I'm just getting started.

        we'll see if you stay on Daily Kos. This is against the rules. Stop it and stop it right now.

          how I see things unfolding most days. Frustration at witnessing multiple failures.

          Innappropriate as I am not privy to the context of your conversations with Shoq.

          Deleted.
          Sorry, that is the problem with blogging from the hip.

            See... I know nothing about twitter and I somehow got the impression that Shoq's tweets were yours.

            Your comment probably wasn't anything to worry about. I don't even remember seeing it.

            I am SO sorry! You did nothing wrong whatsoever.

            Not only was I wrong here. I was VERY wrong.

              Ditto your comment above.
