99. They are not doing nothing
They are drilling two relief wells. As I mentioned earlier, it's not possible to have a deep explosion - they can't get inside the well. Anything they explode shallower than say 4000 feet below the sea floor would still allow the oil to escape, it'll cut itself right through the rocks because it has so much pressure. I guess you don't really get this point: the pulverized matrix doesn't have the strentgh nor density to hold the oil.
