Why in 5000 feet?

Has the question ever been asked, why was BP drilling for oil in 5000 feet of water? Why not in 500 feet?

I am a racist for asking?

That question has been asked many times.  One answer is that oil companies have been denied drilling access to many easier, safer areas to get to.  The other answer is maybe that's where the oil is.

I thought they have been telling us they can directionally bore now so they could put the wells all close together so they don't ruin as much landscape.  That is their story for Antartica or Alaska or wherever it is they want to keep drilling.

Neither do I, but have been labeled a bagger racist because I question the wisdom of the Obama health care take over. Just thought I would save the libs the embarrassment of trying to answer your question. The answer of course, is 5,000 feet of water is where the environmentalist have given their permission to drill.

1) nuclear

2) coal

The man turned the ignition key and the car started right up. 'Wow!' the man exclaimed, 'what did you put in my gas tank'?

The bee saidf
