21. I know for a fact this did not happen
a buddy of mine and a bunch of his friends were posted all over the Astrodome specifically looking for oil companies offering work, and they did NOT see any.

I can't prove any of this, but your friend couldn't prove what he said either, so you should have a productive discussion.
