    Oil Slick and SCUBA Show Videos

    Sorry for being a dive and blogging slacker, but in my other life, I’ve been busy trying to get a squatter out of my home.

    When the day comes, and it should be soon, I will try and throw a massive The Evil Bitch Is Gone Party.

    I also have heard that our seas have been plagued by heavy surf and red tide, so maybe I haven’t missed as much as I think.

    As everyone should know, the oil is still leaking in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Yesterday, I was pumping gas at an ARCO Station when I noticed the guy getting gas in front of me had a “Boycott British Petroleum” bumper sticker.

    As he’s pumping gas in an ARCO?

    Anyway, ocean current models are predicting that the oil will basically ruin the whole Eastern United States coastline.

    Optimistic reports, usually made by BP, suggest that we will just “clean it up.”

    The other extremes is that the oil will poison the ocean, and when the oil runs dry, the empty cavern will implode causing a tsunami that will wipe out the costal communities of the Southern Unites States.

    So how bad can the oil spill get?

    To further brighten your day, here’s the most depressing collection of pictures from the oil slick.

    This spill was not a result of greedy capitalism, as some have charged, but a poorly run company with 760 OSHA violations – Exxon has just one.

    As far as criticism that the federal government isn’t doing enough to stop the leak?

    I think British Petroleum would know how to stop that leak better than the any government.

    Besides, if the federal government were to take over the cap and clean up efforts, all they would do is contract BP anyway.

    So, on to a lighter note.

    I attended the SCUBA Show in Long Beach on May 15th and was able to shoot some OK footage with my new homemade 3D video rig.

    I’ll perfect my technique, in addition to the YouTube 3D tags.

    Hopefully, I will get in the water soon, if nothing other than a free dive.
