Oil Rig

a: An offshore oil rig ~
b: a matchbox on top of a two-storey building

What: "a large offshore oil rig is like a matchbox on top of a two-storey building, with 'the upper floor filled with water and the lower floor filled with rock, sand and, in some cases, salt. Striking an oil reservoir with a drill pipe is then like hitting a coin at the base of the building with a strand of human hair."
