First I appreciate safe oil well drilling operations. We need oil and gas. Bob, I’m from Houston Texas. I never worked on a oil platform but I did work in the Petro-Chemical industry for 32 years as a Production Shift Superintendent and in Production Engineering.
I have conducted thousands of accident investigations. Most of them were minor but a few were in the major category. One that comes to mind was the decomposition of a chemical in 8 x 55 gallon drums. I had argued with the engineer that this decomposition needed to be done in the lab first. Then a procedure written up on how to do it.
He fought me on this and the operator pumped 8 drums of this toxic chemical into a glass lined 3,000 gallon reactor. The reactor contained about a thousand gallons of 15% caustic before the charge of the 8 drums. It took a few minutes but the reaction started a dynamic exothermic reaction.
Alarms began going off on the computer control system. We had printers that would print every alarm. The printers started going crazy. The reactor pressured up and blew off the 200 pound man way cover. A geyser shot out of the reactor like old faithful.
It was a freaking mess and the wind carried this material to our main power grid coming into the facility. The main fuses on the power grid blew out and causing a complete shutdown of all systems. This little incident cost the company boo coos of money because all process units shutdown.
No one was hurt except the pride of one arrogant engineer.

I don't *like*(unscientific, I know) the idea of infestation, but it certainly works for some.

But then the infections would form a power bloc against the cooperative bacteria and who knows where that would lead...

If you arranged all the bacteria in the world in a line, one of them would wriggle and spoil it.

Let the jokes begin!
Oklahoma Highway Patrol issued a Breathalyzer at the time, and although Alred was under the state's legal alcohol limit, he had been drinking underage.

Oklahoma's measure for underage drinking is 0.02 blood to alcohol content.

Most kids would rather go to church than jail. Church has boys and girls depending on his preference.

But Dawkins book has another function. When we run out of toilet paper, I have to pull it out and rip off two or three pages and use it to wipe my a**. Its a little course but hey, that's atheism for you.

It adds a whole new meaning to being "rear ended".

Then there's the tailgate party afterwards.

Where does it all end?
