Thankyou for the black slippery stinking frite!
that burned my lungs an stole my sight!
I trusted, careing man, and gave him my delight!
but he choked me and stole my life!
oh beings on two legs you be!
what right have you to take my life so easily!
as I nurtured my young my eyes burned blind!
how could you be so incredibly kind!
and take my baby and my life!
in stinking horror and vile black slippery, oil!
its! just not right! its! just not right!

bop' preventor was calibrated to deal with auto-shut-off pressures of up to 15,000 Ibs psi the pressure that imerges from deep oil/gas wells is known to be above 60,000 psi; and the expandsion of gas from sea bed to sea surface is 2000 times in volume! an 18 inch pipe cannot possibly cope with this kind of gas a expansion! so you silly fools at BP, re-engineer your oil/gas extraction methods or the same thing will happen again and again!
