  •  Fascinating... (6+ / 0-)

    Pera thank you so much, I had time to quick-skim this AM but now going back to read about the BOP autopsy it's shameful such a piece of junk was actually put out there for public consumption. Most folks don't remember but we here do, and I distinctly remember there being TWO pipes at the top of old Gert when the original cuts were made to get the long riser pipes off of her...and Dudley or one of those clowns remarking later on they "lost" that extra pipe...possibly around the time of the junk shot nonsense. I know that videos are somewhere that can show the exact timing. Jeebus Christ on a cracker, what gang has their fangs into absolutely everyone remotely connected with investigating this deadly accident?!  
    Always grateful for your hard work, this just gets more breath-takingly surreal - I wonder if in my lifetime the truth will come out?  Because it will at some point, and it would be nice if it did so before all of us that witnessed are dead and gone...
    Thanks again, truly.

    Think what you are doing today. -Fred Rogers

    •  The problem with the DNV modeling seems (6+ / 0-)

      to be a magically bent pipe that straightened itself out, not that there were two pipes. There was also a problem with the DNV assuming the annular valves were closed when witness testimony indicated otherwise. I'm just hoping that the Chemical Safety Board or the National Academy of Engineering can get enough data to provide at least a few meaningful insights as to what went wrong.

      There's a small chance that we might get some more information as the legal process unfolds when subpoenas that can't be ducked go out.
