Erm…I’m afraid this one is only funny in a morbid way. The below looks like a dispatch from BP Global PR, but as far as I know, it’s a real BP memo discovered in the wake of an earlier accident, showing the logic BP used to justify implementing suboptimal safety measures. The life of a worker was evaluated at $10 million. Cost-benefit analyses using human lives are, unfortunately, common in industry, but the whimsical approach BP takes to potential casualties is downright appalling in hindsight. Found on The Daily Beast.
Okay, that was kind of depressing. Have some baby Red River hogs from the LA Zoo (I’m so there later).
