Drilling a Tight Hole

While it may feel good in the short term, is there any future in it?

tight hole
1. n. [Drilling]
ID: 1625A section of a
wellbore, usually openhole, where larger diameter components of the drillstring, such as drillpipe tool joints, drill collars, stabilizers, and the bit, may experience resistance when the driller attempts to pull them through these sections. See: openhole, tool joint
2. n. [Drilling]
ID: 1626A well that the
operator requires be kept as secret as possible, especially the geologic information. Exploration wells, especially rank wildcats, are often designated as tight. Unfortunately, this designation is of questionable benefit in keeping the data secret. See: wildcat

I'm pro-capitalism and making money, but I also feel that corporations have a social and environmental responsibility. Sustainable and renewable resources are the wave of the future and many do not require the rape and pillage of the natural world and other nations.

Survivalism by Nine Inch Nails:

I should have listened to her

So hard to keep control

We kept on eating but

Our bloated belly's still not full

She gave us all she had but

We went and took some more

Can't seem to shut her legs

Our mother nature is a whore(chorus:)

I got my propagandaI got revisionism

I got my violence

In hi-def ultra-realism

All a part of this great nation

I got my fistI got my planI got survivalism

Hypnotic sound of sirens

Echoing through the street

The cocking of the rifles

The marching of the feet

You see your world on fire

Don't try to act surprised

We did just what you told us

Lost our faith along the way and found ourselves believing your lies(chorus)(cut-up speech)All bruised and broken, bleeding

She asked to take my handI turned, just keep on walking

But you'd do the same thing in the circumstance

I'm sure you'll understand(chorus)You got your pacifism - I got survivalism (repeat)
