It looked terribly just before it blew, clearly under enormous pressure and the ruptures in the top getting visibly worse. It was like watching a brain splitting and hemorrhaging, then the camera rocks and spins with the force of the explosion toward the light near the surface, and then it's a swirling shitstorm for about one or two very long minutes, like being in the middle of an underwater hurricane or typhoon. Large schools of what appears to be rock coming out of nowhere at tremendous speed, swirling oil and mud and bubbles of no doubt that criminally toxic Corexit they banned in the UK for surface use (and now poisons the entire water column and food chain in the Gulf, as BP continues in its corporate quest to disappear the full extent of damages).
Now it's just a deathly swirl of black, floating bubbles and black. No more light is coming from the
A complete nightmare. Way to go, BP! At least your PR campaign is still working, making liars of the President and General all day yesterday, and the MSM has yet to report anything but your latest "success."
Who knows how long the video will be around. Nobody seems to be reporting on it yet. I've watched it several times now, and gotten lots and lots of screen grabs...
