    The Tin Foil Hat crowd was theorizing about an NK submarine as the cause of the BP blowup. Our Goobermint would NEVER let us know the truth either way.......

    At least this one seems to be a 'small' one....... Differing reports on whether there's a slick, or how extensive it is.

    They reported that the rig was NOT operational, not pumping oil and had only 13 people aboard...So, what blew up and what caused that fire?
    I think it might be interesting to see what is going on with the sea floor...
    ...Or, if govt plans to attack NK, it must have been a mini sub... In that case we'll hear about it asap!... :D
