    Same here, but I'm not sold yet. I still think there are large underwater plumes.

    (BTW, what's the deal with the Bama logo? Just curious and sorry if you explained it in another thread.)

    I used to hate Bama since I went to LSU in the early to mid 70s...when we could never beat them no matter how good we were. Then, I went to Birmingham as a Katrina refugee. Those people were just incredible to me and my family. I stayed there till after Christmas...had some job offers...met the governor and was invited to cook for him...developed many dear friendships that remain to this moment. So now, I root for them until they play LSU...

    Then they're just a roadbump on the way to the BCS championship. !! :tigereye:

    I was a big Raiders fan back in the days of Otto, Blanda, Lamonica and Belitnikoff....way before the raider fans became subhuman. I witnessed the Heidi bowl game with my brothers and dad...we were all Raider fans.
    I kinda liked Stabler too.

    I still hate them when we're playing them...:yelwink2:

    It's OK though...You know, I converted a lot of them too....They like to root for us especially when we're playing Auburn or Florida.

    I found them to be a whole lot like us...a bunch of homers bordering on delusional. :eek:

    This ought to be a whole other thread...Our second favorite SEC teams.:thumb:

    SRB's are what caused the leak in Alaska. My guess, this is what they are talking about. This is sulphate-reducing bacteria, it will live in the water, not the crude. You can pump crude at 20-30K bbls/hr. and these things will still cling to the pipe wall. You have to run a pig throught the pipeline to remove these things.

    In this write-up they talk about smart pigs....
