Man, this is amazing...I was too young to remember it when it happened, but that's probably for the best. At an impressionable six years of age, it would have given me a paralyzing fear of lakes!

The ultimate topper is the fact that the only casualties were three dogs and a lake full of freshwater fish. But something tells me Texaco got a lot more cautious in their drilling after such a whopper of a bungle!
