    Listen n Listen good...

    can you explain the what "Fing" is? I am trying to learn more about what is going on here. I Shorted 900 shares this morning. I was amazed that the stock was up after the bad news over the weekend. I know the whole EU bailout has everyone thrilled. I wonder how long that sentiment will last.
    Does anyone think this cap is going to work? Wont the pressure blow it off? Since this cap is much smaller and sounds like an easier fix, why didn't they try it 1st? I don't think it will work. What kind of cement can dry 5000 ft below the surface?

    • markwebber... what kind of cement will dry 5000 feet below the surface of water?... I believe it is called tremmi cement... cement weighs about 150 lbs a cubic ft....salt water weighs somewhat less (maybe 62 lbs ft3)... the cement will displace the water, and dry just fine.. the water will cool the heat given off in the curing, and it will dry stronger than in air...just remembering some bits of info from years ago, I could be wrong.. any concrete men out there??
