I know MBARI is paranoid, but the REAL reason they are starting to cut off ALL access to ANY of their insider info is the IMMINENT law suits that ARE going to be filed. I know that LegalProBono in salinas is handling some mbari clients for labor related issues.

Under the Federal Jones Act you have THREE YEARS
to file a claim pertaining to your injuries and associated pain and suffering from a ship wreck. since the Mexico shipwreck was Feb. 2008, YOU CAN STILL FILE FOR DAMAGES UNTIL FEB 8th, 2011. It is wide open for THAT, as Gross Negligence, Unseaworthy Vessel, and probably even MORE has been established in writing by the government. I KNOW that MBARI must be having their Lawyers working overtime right now for damage control. expect to see a LOT of stuff disappear from their websites.

Wow man! I just found that trippy video of that boat manager guy etchemendy from mbari and the captain i think his name is Daryl, looking at a navigation screen showing their ships track line as a straight line plotted over a reef!! I may be a stoner, but even I wouldnt have done that!!hahaha
and they are looking at it WHILE THEY ARE SHIPWRECKED!!! hahaha its so funny, because i use to work for those "scientists". I was going to go back to California if they legalized pot, but i dont care now, because they would have to legalize hookers too, like here in amsterdam. I hope i find something else here on topix to make me laffff.
