Sad thing that. So. Not even a really long filter then?

Ideas out.

Looks like it. Too much pressure down there.

Isn't there an empty earth pocket somewhere one can direct the oil too?

### Re: Make proposals to stopping the oil leakage in the mexican gulf

There sure is. I am willing to dig a big hole in my backyard capable of holding 500 000 000 barrels of crude. I will then sell it at 10 bucks a barrel. I am sure there are many city ordinances prohibiting people from filling their backyard with crude oil but the politicians here are for sale.

Good one, bobbym. But I am more like pointing at a really close empty earth pocket that one can direct the oil too.

Hi LQ;

I don't know of any natural hole where it would be safe to dump it.

### Re: Make proposals to stopping the oil leakage in the mexican gulf

Rumour goes that one proposal is that they nuke the hole. Wouldn't the oil get very radioactive by that?

The idea is not so bad.

How about a vacuum bomb in the hole?

You would have to use a black hole bomb. And that would destroy the earth.

### Re: Make proposals to stopping the oil leakage in the mexican gulf

vacuum is very implosive you see, it has a really high effect at high preasures. A really high effect. It would implode the hole.

And for goodness sake, no father of all bombs down there, for that would've killed the hole planet.

I recon that the size of the vacuum capsule would not be much bigger then a regular capsule of medicin, yet would've imploded the whole hole.

### Re: Make proposals to stopping the oil leakage in the mexican gulf

sounds good in theory LQ
actually all of these proposals are pretty good and well-thought.
However, there is still the question of whether or not you will be able to achieve this deep underwater with a robot and risking lots of money if it fails.

Actually my backyard idea is the best. I already have an option to build a gasoline cracking plant next door. Within a month we'll be producing 100 million gallons of high octane. In a year we will buy BP.

It's a funny idea. Have you told them to eat food closer to the metabolism at hot places yet? It's not like they'll do it anyway, right?
