Any ideas on how to stop the leak and then how to clean up the mess?

I think they need to drill into the seafloor around the existing well , plant huge explosive charges and collapse the seabed onto the well to close it off.

Then take large sheets of those "super-Zorbee's" and spread them across the surface to absorb the oil. Collect the sheets and spin dry them to extract and use the oil...If fishing nets of several 1000's of feet can be froped as drift nets for fishing certainly we can do the same idea with HUGE pare towels or something....
Not any worse an idea than what has happened so far........
