It might not top the American Idol finale , but hey, at least we don’t know how this one’s going to end.

BP is streaming live video of the “top kill” effort online, an attempt to plug the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico with a steady stream of mud. The company warns that it may take some 24 hours to know if the effort successfully stopped the flow. Better hunker in for a long night.
