Re: Well Explosion

Things are gonna happen. Theres just no way around it. A couple bad things are sure to happen, and a lot of excellent things will happen. For instance, a lot of folks who have never had a dollar in life, are going to get to a live a little. A lot of folks without good jobs, are going to get hired and make decent money. We are going to open up a new source of energy here in the states and have the opportunity to reduce a little of our dependence on foreign oil. We are going to have a source of energy that will result in an end profit for AMERICA, AND NOT THE MIDDLE EAST. It doesnt solve our problems, but it may help long term.

Yes, there will be the occassional accident. and it stinks. But you gotta take the good with the bad.

Re: Well Explosion

This is life. Things do happen and always will. These people who want everything perfect are living in a make believe world. Do we want accidents?? No way, but Humans screw up and always will. We must just do the best we can.
