30 years later

In 1980 I had a job with a crew that built the towers that splits Natural Gas into its components.

One day when we were starting production on one rig I was sent 90 feet up stare at a gauge for 45 minutes ( it never moved.. not one bit). I always felt that my lead man Rocky had punked me.

Today while checking the live feeds from the oil spill I saw a multimillion dollar rover “Ocean Intervention III– ROV 2” watching a gauge, and that is the only thing it did for quite a while.

I don’t feel so stupid any more
