    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0koe1OW27zM&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - UPDATE *Enhanced* Video of "Bursts/Leaks near sea floor filmed by ROV on Monday at 4:45am"[/ame]

    These "bursts" are coming from the sea FLOOR, and many are suggesting that they are actually Methane bubbles.

    Interesting vid about THAT:

    What's "so far from "over"?? Is this from the rig on fire in the Gulf? Or some other potential problem..

    How far from the well is THIS? One of the reasons people drill in the Gulf is that there are NATURAL seeps on the floor..

    One way to reduce the seepage is to DRILL BABY DRILL....
