I was just sitting here keying numbers and daydreaming when this image of oil rigs popped into my head. I am just wondering if anybody knows what it's like there? It must be pretty isolated and rough... Not that I want to go there, but it has an interesting ring to it in terms of documentary potential.

So, does anybody know anything about life on an oil rig? Or anything similar?? I am just curious and TP is one of my best sources of information!

Cheers!

I'm worried about you sitting around with oil rigs popping into your head. You been eating after 11 again, Philly?

The creative mind works in weird and often worrying ways... You can consider yourself lucky that I am not posting everything that goes through my head... Or I'd have the sombre looking men with sunshades and black suits knocking on my door pretty soon...

In chat, Tina said to be careful if you get on a rig for your documentary... Someone may ask you to bend over in the shower to pick up the soap. DON'T DO IT!!!!

Beerman says: Someone may ask you to do chipmunk theater (theatre) over dinner - DON'T DO THAT EITHER!!!!!!!

Thanks. I'll make sure I know how to pick up the soap with my feet should I ever get into that situation...

But what the heck is Chipmunk Theatre?

Don't be coy, Son. It's nothing to be ashamed of, really. It's a "special" talent.......
