In case anyone's interested, I got bored and came up with the idea to share with everyone what I live with and see on a regular basis, due to living in the middle of the oil boom (on the edge actually, but still close enough to see some action). These are examples of the awesome, atrocious, and purely stupid goings on that happen here.
Note: I didn't take most of these pictures. They come from a facebook page that I follow here --->Bakken Oilfield Fail of the Day<---
If this thread catches any following I'll keep updating with more pictures, if it dies, too bad i guess. Enjoy!
