The oil exhibit was stinky -- literally. One of the kids kept turning the sulfur wheel.
Perhaps I am slightly immune to oil basics. Everything there I already sorta knew, so it was a little disappointing. I liked that they had a few bit types. I don't think a lot of people know that Hughes made his big money off the tri-cone bit.
There were two things that caught my eye. One was a comment about oil and water, and the other was a comment about oil and cows. Some of my undergraduate background is in groundwater hydrology, so oil and water are both near and dear to me. I heard once that the next big war will be about water, not oil. I guess we'll see.
There was a quote that said that oil and cows are the perfect mix. During a summer internship I worked on a field on the King Ranch in South Texas. Oil and cows are such an integral part of the culture, it's hard to think of Texas without them. And anyone who has been to the King Ranch can share my pain on the infamous bump gates.
