Nonononono, Slick. Your claim — your task to back it up. We are growing more than a little weary of you banging your rabbit and then answering challenges with My, look at the time. Gotta go buh-bye. Weak. Weak. Weak.
not one word of appreciation despite the many technical difficulties that had to be overcome.
Sure, let's thank the the guy that shot us for handing over a band-aid.
to blame BP at all costs
Considering the costs, seems like a reasonable plan.
for example that the rig was supplied to the company with hidden defects which caused the blowout.
For example, those defects were brought to BPs attention by the rig owners, and BP said Pffffffft. Keep going.
because 'B' stands for 'British' any advocacy of the company's position is nationalistic is complete drivel
Nope. The drivel is all yours. Your unapologetic nationalism-as-a-defense-rationale is not only obvious, it's about as objectionable as the crap now filling the Gulf. And your so-called stoicism? Don't make me laugh. You haven't got the spine to fulfill the criteria.
to all intents and purposes BP America is an American corporation, quoted on Wall Street and everything like that.
BP America is a subsidiary of BP. It is not autonomous. Otherwise, Tony Baloney wouldn't be soiling his knickers and pining for "his life" all over the media. And everything like that.
I read the Times story before yoyo linked to it. The NYTimes is my start page. It does not support your claim anywhere near as much as you think it does. Parts of the article may run along a somewhat similar track, but overall, it still admits that there is yet to be a clear and reliable determination. So, you still haven't provided what anyone would call solid proof. And the fact remains that such data is still very hard to come by. Unless, of course, you are the all-knowing keymaker.
Your assertion was pretty specific. Now support it with equally specific and relevant documentation. Or will this be yet another case of My, look at the time. Gotta go buh-bye.

I'm still not understanding your point -- that experiment was intended to see if, absent any other influence, oil would rise in a tube due exclusively to the oil being lighter than water (in my experiment, it didn't) ... my set-up was intended specifically to reduce as much as I could the influences of pressure on the experiment ...
Given that, I'm not sure how those results would be helpful in the case of the gulf spill where air/sea/oil pressures are massively significant factors ...
