BP_oil For over a month, BP has been fucking around with top hats and insertion tubes and other techniques to capture the oil, but haven’t done anything to actually stop it. That’s like a plumber fixing an overflowing toilet by capturing the shit in buckets as opposed to shutting off the water. But this week that could all change as the company will use a “top kill” method to drop lots of mud and cement on it. If that doesn’t work, there’s always the backup: stuff the hole with junk.
