So I was down at my local city planning dept today because I am leasing an office and had to ask them some questions about some things I wanted to do. After they asked me what seemed like 1000 questions to see if they could tag me for more permits and make more money I got to thinking.
I wanted to move a door and make it a double door. They told me it had to move outward and asked me every question under te sun. So while I was driving home I thought, drillng a well 2 miles deep into the ocean is a huge project. You would think that the regulations for such an event would be staggering. After all my little door project took about 2 hours of my time down at the plannig department. So wouldn't you think there would be precautions such as a ummmm a shut off valve? I mean I am not technical guru or a mechanical whiz but I just don't understand how a billion dollar company could get away with putting such a monstrousity out in the ocean without some really strict guidelines such as ummm yeah....a shut off valve. I don't know just a thought. Something doesn't make sense.
