The Game of Life

The Good News: BP finally managed to cap the well, which has been spewing oil nonstop into the Gulf of Mexico for the past 86 days.  It took teams of the nation’s top engineers to reach this point and many are relieved even though the fix is only temporary. 

The Bad News: BP foresaw its doom more than 30 years ago?  That’s what some bloggers are joking about after seeing images of the 1970s BP-endorsed board game, Offshore Oil Strike.  One of the “Hazard” cards that players can draw even says, “Blow-out!  Rig damaged.  Oil slick clean-up costs.  Pay $1 million.”  It’s as if BP knew the risks yet ignored all the signs…too bad their math was a bit off.
