    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!

    Very important to know right? I mean there IS a certain technique to it that not many people know!

    Why we have tailgates/hatches. Nuff said

    [​IMG]

    Shit'll buff.

    Hmmm, this wasn't here yesterday...

    Nothing to see here...moving on.

    Don't fuck with the loader operator.

    [​IMG]

    Computer malfunctioned in the process of packing up a drilling rig.

    [​IMG]

    And this is why we have trailer brakes.

    Liberal geologist that was looking for fossils...wonder how long it took before anyone helped him?

    Who needs a house when you've go a ford tempo?

    Lot of 49ers didn't know how to handle the California environment either.
    They learned or failed.

    Yup.
    If this were 2009, I'd be on my way too.

    I was laid off in June '09, and had I known in July that I'd still be looking for work in January, I'd have gotten the fuck out of California before I blew my savings on the mortgage.

    View the build. Too much to list.
    My grandpa did a ton of digging for the bakken sites. He said he saw some pretty crazy things too. He said its mostly people with more money than brains.
