    the BP test has clearly shown, that, the BOP and everything under the BOP, have had NO oil leaking (since, both, was made, by design, to resist to very high oil pressures) while the wellhead top has been completely closed by the new containment cap (whose MAIN PURPOSE isn't to close the wellhead, but, later, to collect and pump up the oil and SELL it...) and, that, was PERFECTLY KNOW by BP also BEFORE this test
    .
    THAT is what I've ALWAYS SAID in last TWO MONTHS in my article about the oil spill:

    .
    so, WHY hasn't BP used a modified version of its giant Genesis GXP 2500 idraulic shears (or the containment cap used now) to do the SAME THING but TWO MONTHS AGO and BEFORE the terrific disaster in the Gulf ?????????????????
    .
    could FBI and the Press INVESTIGATE on that, instead of CLOSE their eyes ????????????

    It started at Ellicott City around 5:04 AM. I was in bed when it happend. My table lamp started shaking. It was very brief and strange. I started reading news on my blackbeery and I saw the news of earthquake. There was no power failure.

    I live in Windsor Mill, MD and it woke me out of my sleep. The bed started shaking and then I noticed the walls to the apartment building were shaking and I heard rumbling outside. It lasted for a while. I don't know how Californians can deal with this on a regular basis.
