Remember the discussion about how if something went drastically wrong with an offshore oil rig, all the safety talk about how the flow of oil would automatically be cut off. There would be no need to be concerned about it.
So, sure, we lost 11 people on the rig (IIRC). But on the plus side, pre-boiled shrimp.
Guess where most of our shrimp comes from, and guess when they do the major fishing season. Also points if you know when hurricane season starts and just what a hurricane would do to the Gulf Waters as it might pass through.
As Bender says, "We're boned."
