A cool almost-InfoGraphic-kind-of-thing. I'm not going to even bother to try to shrink this down and post a tiny version, because it's so long horizontally. It would never work. Nevertheless, check out this image from VisualEconomics listing a whole bunch of stuff BP could have bought with all the money they lost in stock as of June 2010. This doesn't even include the over $3.5 billion in recovery costs. BP...you could have done a whole lot of good. Who doesn't love an ice cream sandwich?
