Is it really Friday? Please tell me it's not Friday already. I thought it was Wednesday. I'm seriously going to be depressed if it's Friday.

  Christ almighty, I just watched a few select scenes of a Max Hardcore movie. That man is plain evil. I feel as though I've just commited a crime against humanity just having watched those couple of minutes.

Here's a bit on him. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Hardcore

  Skip to my loo, my darling.
When are you coming home?
Phone Uncle Sue; on four rings,
Propose to me at the tone.

We could be happy,
Merry and gay,
And eat fried ice
Every Flying Pig Day

But you know it's too bad...
I'm as old as my dad...

So let's just be friends.

  How common is meningitus in the states?

I have all the symptoms except the rash and I think I'm going to die. Unless it's just a flu, in which case I will just be in severe discomfort for awhile.

It should be noted that in these videos they are always, always engaging in anti-social behaviour ie. slapping strangers and braking other peoples things.


Is it what all the cool "gangstas" do these days?

I'll see if I can find a video that has someone doing it. I know I've seen one in the last couple of days.


Ok, found one. Just a warning, there are some Not safe for work advertisements on that website.

The guy with the camera makes the noise several times throughout the video.

On a very related note, have I ever mentioned how little faith I have in humanity? Perhaps I'm just a pessimist, but scenese like that seem to only becoming more common.

I believe what you are looking for is
"brap brap"
haha

Which is a playful imitation of a gunshot sound and usually accompanied by the raising of your hand with your index and middle fingers [and thumb]out.

Similar to "whut!!" or "yeah!" or "woohoo!" or "i agree!"

:D
I know because I'm a gangsta.

And all for naught, too. The cause has been deemed idiopathic. Well fuck, isn't that what I said they'd say, and why I said I don't see the point in going?


"Ohhh but you HAVE to go,you see." They said. "Don't you want to know what's wrong with you?" They asked.


Well I knew the outcome, which is why I didn't need to pay someone to tell me.

I was lonelier than Kunta Kinte at a Merle Haggard concert
That night I strolled on into Uncle Limpy's Hump Palace lookin' for love.
It had been a while.
In fact, three hundred and sixty-five had come and went
since that midnight run haulin' hog to Shakey Town on I-10.
I had picked up this hitchhiker that was sweatin' gallons
through a pair of Daisy Duke cut-offs and one of those Fruit Of The Loom tank-tops.
Well, that night I lost myself to ruby red lips,
milky white skin and baby blue eyes.
Name was Russell.

I get a lot of stress out through physical activity like running or weight lifting. Also have a heavy bag, and I let loose on it sometimes, just punch and kick and elbow and knee and headbutt the hell out of it. Show it who's boss, and pretend like all the things that are getting to me are in that bag.


I used burn myself or cut myself. I don't recommend doing those.

  "Back in the day when I managed a little grocery/deli combination I was stupid enough to put a little note on the shelf that held all the cleaning supplies that said, "ammonia and bleach: give it a whirl." After a very frightening call from the paramedics on my day off about an employee who had done just that, the note came down forever.
I came away with a new respect for the responsibility that comes with subtle sarcasm. I still can't believe that actually happened and it was all my fault."



I know I shouldn't laugh at that. It's just so funny, though.

I woke up this morning, and the first thought on my mind was "My Car is going to function go on the blink on me." Even though it hasn't had any troubles or given me any reason to think so.

  -Mother-There once was a bloke named Wally. He was a man small in stature, and timid in nature. One fateful evening, a burglar broke into his house and killed him. And everyone lived happily ever after. The End.

-Susan-Mommy!

-Mother-Yes, Susan?

-Susan-You said he died!

-Mother-Yes I did Susan.

-Susan- Then how could you say everyone lived happily ever after?

-Mother- Because that's what happened.

-Susan- But mother, that is not a happy ending. It is sad that he died!

-Mother- It was a very happy day, Susan. But I shouldn't tell you why.

-Susan- Mother, that isn't fair. You have to tell me!

-Mother- Wellll....ok Susan. I changed the story a bit.

-Susan- Tell me the real story, mother.

-Mother- Well, you know how I said the mans name was Wally?

-Susan- Yes, Mother. Was that not his real name?

-Mother- No dear, it wasn't. His real name was Jonas.

-Susan- Like Father!

-Mother- Yes, dear. Like your father.

-Susan- What else did you change, Mother?

-Mother- You know when I said he was a small man? And a timid man?

-Susan- Yes I do, mother. Was that not true?

-Mother- No sweetheart, it wasn't. He was a large man, and a very loud, assertive man.

-Susan- Also like Father!

-Mother- Yes Susan. Also like your father.

-Susan- What else, mother?

-Mother- Well Susan, do you remember how I told you that your father had to go away for business for a long time?

-Susan- Yes mother. When will he come back? I miss him so.

-Mother- Well, Susan, my darling little girl, do you remember when you and Timothy had to help mommy take those big suitcases down by the bridge and throw them into the river?

-Susan- Yes, mother. What has that got to do with this?

-Mother- Nothing Susan. Nothing at all. Go to sleep, my dear Susan. Just take my word for it when I say the man being killed was a happy ending. Ok, dear?

-Susan- Yes, mother. But I still don't understand.

-Mother- I don't expect you too, honey. Now drink this lemonade that I made special, just for, before you go to sleep. And darling, be sure to drink it all.

-Susan- Yes, mother. I will.

-Mother- Goodnight, Susan.

-Susan- Goodnight, mother. I love you.

and then I hear the wonderful news that Exxon just released it's quarterly business figures, and thank god, they turned a profit of 8.4 billion dollars (in just 3 months)! Phew! Now I feel better...cuz I just know some of that is going to trickle down to my pockets.

How the hell can you accumulate a $400 heating bill when you live in Atlanta ?
Do you live in a mansion ?
My house is only 1300 square ft and my heating bill was never more than $100 all winter long and I'm 8hrs north of you.

i agree with you, it sucks, but still, try to buy a gallon of gas in Europe.
That's what happens in a market driven economy, all we have to do is curtail our usage by only a few percentage points and the prices will come down.
That Exxon payout to their CEO was just a little obscene, but hey, it's their money.

If all you got for a litre of petrol in Europe was a litre of petrol, and you payed the prices they do you would have a valid point. But it's my understanding that the taxes applied to their high prices charged for gasoline over there pay for much of the government public transportation services. The result of this is less single driver cars on the roads there, emitting much less pollution into the atmosphere. That is a very worthy and important service, especially in light of what we now know to be true about global warming and our melting ice caps....at least rational people do.




>That's what happens in a market driven economy,

Please don't excuse this type of corporate greed as just an inevitable result of a "market driven economy". The progressives stepped in at the turn of the last century, thank god, to deal with the business tycoons raping the workers during the guilded age.
No one is saying they don't have a right to a profit margin. But when every one of these large oil companies reports record breaking profits (gouging), and the average Joe gets no salary increase to offset the higher prices, then we all need to be screaming about it. It ends up hitting us from every side because the transportation cost increases for all our goods and services are passed down to the end consumer....you and me take it in the shorts, while those top oil exect's smoke their cigars, swirl their brandy, and think about what color the next Ferrarri they buy will be.


>all we have to do is curtail our usage by only a few percentage points and the prices will come down.

Considering Americans that's much easier said than done.

They're there (supposedly) to serve us, not the other way around. They're not the government (that's questionable, but they're not supposed to be). They should be held accountable, they should be in our service. Actlng like they're just out there and we can't help it is just allowing the exploitation of consumers everywhere.

No...it's actually very complicated and inter-related, hif.

You're correct that I don't have a gun to my head telling me to go fill up my tank at an Exxon-Mobil station...but that's about it for the relevance of your statement.
98% of us use gas powered engines. The entire airline industry, railroad, and trucking companies here depend on some form of petroleum to operate. The transportation infastructure of this nation must have refined fuel or we shut down totally.
Me boycotting Exxon and getting my gas at Shell instead is just transfering money from one excessively greedy company to another...it solves nothing.

I am not anti-big business...anyone that is is kinda short-sighted if you ask me. A corporation gives me a paycheck every two weeks so I can survive.
What I am is anti-corrupt, socially irresponsible, let's line our pockets while we can big business, and to hell with the people that suffer from our greed.
Right now the oil companies have us by the balls, and they know it. Instead of dealing with this situation of dependancy in a socially responsible manner, they have chosen to get the money while the gettin' is good, with little thought to what it means to the rest of the country. It's a glaring lack of a social conscious to me. The really sad thing is that they could lower their prices to help people out and still come away with an extremely good profit...but that's not how they want to play, and this administration is passing every law it can to assist them while we pull down our pants and bend over.

There are large profitable socially, environmentally, and morally conscious businesses out there. It can be done.

Of course it can be done, but there is no law and there should be no law that says you have to do it that way.
Most of the price of a gallon of gas goes to taxes that were installed by the dems so don't go blaming dubya for your woes at the pump.
I am in agreement with you that they are excessively greedy right now but it's a private business and they have every right to charge whatever they want for their product.
Would you ask the govt to step in and demand an investigation if Bill Gates decided to triple the price of Windows tomorrow ? It's very much the same thing.


 
jennemmer Posted: Thu Apr 27 19:43:00 2006  
  At least with Windows there are other choices. Sure people may not like them as much, etc. etc. but if Windows increased their prices people who dissagreed would have somewhere else to go.

Sure there are different oil companies but instead of trying to be competitive and get more people to buy their product by setting a slightly lower price they all seem to agree on a price or profit margin and if someone is selling it higher the lower one seems to figure "if they can get that much for gas I sure can".

Once there are alternatives to petrolium I think we'll see things change but for right now it may as well be a monopoly.

  So what you're saying is if I invent a widget that becomes so popular that virtually everybody uses it,and then I raise the prices, that the government should be able to control what I ask for it ? Ridiculous !
Maybe we should let the government nationize all the petroleum outlets like they have on the utilities now, that would really bring the prices down eh ?

And you really need to familarize yourself with the tax advantages this administration has handed to these people. I'm not blowing smoke out my ass.

There's a new stain removing product out now called "Come out!" that should do the trick on your new Dickers.

Now back to the topic:

In California the cost of refining oil went up by 13% since the beginning of this year. The cost to the california consumer has gone up 134% during the same time period (as reported on NPR today).
Up to this point the oil refining companies have justified this as the rising cost to operate...however they have refused to open their books to auditors.
Hmmmm....

Something tells me this is not an isolated incident

How does a tax advantage have anything to do with the price they charge at the pump ? The price of a barrel of oil is the deciding factor on the price of a gallon of gas and that fluctuates almost daily.
I don't blame Dubya or the dems for high gas prices, I was merely pointing out that you were placing it all on Dubya and that just ain't so.
If you check out how much of your money at the pump goes to the state and feds before Exxon gets their 8 or 9 cents profit you will see it's mostly taxes and these are taxes that were installed by dems. Taxes that provide for roads, emission controls, stuff that you said were good things.
Now I would also ask you, where were you when oil was only twenty dollars a barrel and the oil companies were struggling to survive ?
Why can we not build even a single refinery here ?
Why can we not drill for oil here ?
These things would certainly lower the price of oil.

If we were discussing the rising cost of buying ice cream, for example, I'd agree with you. But this is a unique commodity. With my ice cream example the consumer can choose to buy a different brand quite easily. When a handfull of mega-oil companies all raise their prices we are left with no options.


>How does a tax advantage have anything to do with the price they charge at the pump ?

You're correct..they are mostly separate issues. However if a company receives federal tax advantages, thus lowering the cost of doing business you would think that the end result would be passing that savings on to the end user. That has not been the case.


>Now I would also ask you, where were you when oil was only twenty dollars a barrel and the oil companies were struggling to survive ?

you mean back in the days when their profit margin was was only respectible and not obscene? I have in-laws in the oil industry. They were not standing in bread lines back then.

>Why can we not build even a single refinery here ?

I'm out of my league in answering this. I own the mineral rights to land in Oklahoma. I know that one reason it hasn't been drilled is because even though there is oil in the ground it's not the easiest to get to...so the higher costs involved make it cost prohibitive.
I do know that even if we did open more drilling here it would only be a temporary short term measure for the energy crisis we're in. The amount of oil we have is only a small fraction of our ever growing demand.

That's something that is very debatable.
New technology is making it feaseable now to consider extracting oil from shale.
Drilling for oil aside, it would still lower prices if we could build some refineries here.

naw...having the government keep them in line by checking their books and making sure they know absolutely no price manipulation will be tolerated without serious consequences to those involved will help...and that's a far cry from nationalizing the oil industry. If these companies know they can get a way with it with only a slap on the wrist they have no incentive not to screw us over.

China is now drilling just 20 miles off the coast of Florida but we are not allowed to do that thanks largely to the greens and dems. Republicans had a hand in it too inasmuch as they allowed it to happen, but mostly dems and greens are the culprits here.


 
ifihadahif Posted: Fri Apr 28 18:21:05 2006  
  From today's Patriot Post :

Memo to Beltway gasbags—it's called supply and demand...

Ah, it's an election year, and those dauntless Republicrats are tripping over themselves in the panderfest to see who can proffer the best vote-catcher proposal to protect constituents from "Big Oil."

Recently, the national average price for a gallon of gas topped the national average price for a gallon of Coca-Cola. For the moment, though, gas is still half the cost of fashionable yuppie-label bottled waters and does a far better job of propelling your 2,500-pound vehicle.

Of course, we Americans pay far less for fuel than most folks around the world, especially when compared to European urbanites, some of whom pay more than $10 per gallon. And even at $75 per barrel, oil is still $12 less than its inflation-adjusted record price in 1981. But higher fuel prices do put the pinch on some family budgets, especially when a breadwinner has a long commute.





Government to the rescue!

To help voters feel better at the pump, the Demos are floating a tax cut—a 60-day suspension of federal taxes on fuel. They propose to offset the "cost" of that tax cut by increasing taxes on oil companies. In other words, the 18-cent reduction in tax revenue per gallon would be offset by an 18-cent increase in corporate revenue per gallon to pay for the additional federal taxes on oil companies. We call that a wash.

Democrats are feigning concern about hefty taxes on fuel. Indeed, combined federal, state and local taxes on a gallon of gas now average 50 cents—from a low of 26.4 cents in Alaska to a high of 60 cents in California. That's a bit more than the one-cent-per-gallon "temporary" tax imposed back in 1932.

However, all the Demo hand-wringing counts for little in light of the fact that they're largely responsible for the high taxes on—and the high cost of—fuel. Consider that during the last decade, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi voted for higher fuel taxes five times, and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid did so 12 times.

Democrats' obstruction of oil production and exploration—and most notably, additional nuclear energy power plants—accounts for higher fuel prices.

But it is the Democrats' perennial obstruction of new oil production and exploration, and alternative energy sources—most notably, nuclear energy—that accounts for much of the squeeze on consumers at the pump.

For their part, Republicans are, rightly, worried about retaining their congressional majorities in the upcoming midterm elections. Indeed, they've one-upped the Demos' gas-relief plan with a proposal to send a whopping $100 "rebate check" to millions of taxpayers. On top of that, President George W. Bush, who bemoaned America's "oil addiction" in his most recent State of the Union address, says he will suspend re-supply of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and ease environmental regulations on fuel. With a little luck, Republicans might re-open debate about oil exploration in one-tenth of one percent of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Of course, it's Republicans' addiction to spending that most threatens their prospects for holding their congressional majorities. If Republicans cut government spending and regulation as they promised in '04 and '02 and '00, perhaps consumers could keep enough of their income to pay for alternative automotive and home-energy conservation improvements which lower demand, and thus market price, for energy commodities.



Unfortunately, there is one thing Republicans and Democrats agree on: blaming "Big Oil" for gouging consumers. Demo Sen. Robert Menendez is leading the charge: "It's crystal clear that the current spike in gas prices is at least partly due to an act of greed." For their part, House Speaker Dennis Hastert and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist are demanding that the Justice Department and FTC "investigate any potential collusion, price-fixing or gouging in the sale or distribution of gasoline, petroleum distillates or ethanol in wholesale and retail markets" to determine "whether spot shortages of gasoline are the result of illegal efforts to manipulate prices."

"If there is anything worse than partisan demagoguery, it is bipartisan demagoguery." —Thomas Sowell

Notes economist Thomas Sowell, "If there is anything worse than partisan demagoguery, it is bipartisan demagoguery."

Oil companies are recording record profits—on record sales. In a free-market economy, record sales often result in record profits. Notably, however, the real price gouger is the government. According to the Tax Foundation, in the last three decades government has collected more than $1.34 trillion (inflation adjusted) in gasoline-tax revenues—"more than twice the amount of domestic profits earned by major U.S. oil companies during the same period."

So what really accounts for high fuel prices? The answer is elementary—what economist Milton Friedman called "world market supply and demand for limited resources."

On the supply side, current world production is at about 85 million barrels per day, and new exploration around the world has kept that production pace steady. The U.S. consumes about 25 percent of that world production. About 45 percent of what we consume is produced domestically, and 55 percent imported from seven key suppliers: Mexico (17.9 percent), Canada (17.3 percent), Saudi Arabia (14.3 percent), Nigeria (13.6 percent), Venezuela (11.9 percent), Angola (4.7 percent) and Iraq (4.5 percent).

On the demand side, booming economies in China, India and the U.S. (yes, it is booming despite Demo claims) are competing for a limited supply of oil—and will be as long as the economy stays strong.

It is no coincidence, then, that President Bush has met with both Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Chinese President Hu Jintao within the past month. High on his agenda were energy consumption and competition—which is precisely why the President agreed to assist India with its nuclear-energy program.

China is sucking up all the oil it can import. Hu was in Nigeria and Kenya this week, securing oil leases, and China's reluctance to support UN sanctions against Iran and Sudan is clearly related to Beijing's dependence on oil from those nations.

The good news is that about 20 percent of daily production in the Gulf of Mexico is still disabled because of Katrina—good news because as that production comes back on line, domestic oil prices will ease. Additionally, high prices for any commodity tend to reduce demand, which brings the prices down. The price for crude has already started to drop.

The bad news is that Democrats continue to block construction of new refineries. In fact, not a single new refinery has been built in the U.S. in almost 30 years. Demos continue to block pin-point exploration in oil-rich wastelands such as ANWR. Most significantly, though, is that Demos have, for two generations, blocked the development of nuclear-energy facilities.

"Nuclear energy may just be the energy source that can save our planet from another disaster." —Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore

Even some of the most entrenched environmentalists have reversed their position on nuclear energy. "My views have changed," wrote Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore in conjunction with Earth Day last week, "and the rest of the environmental movement needs to update its views, too, because nuclear energy may just be the energy source that can save our planet... Every responsible environmentalist should support a move in that direction."

In addition to the good news and bad news about energy supply and demand, there is also worse news: the supply wild card. As The Patriot has noted previously, this major strategic consideration would justify our presence in Iraq. If Iran's fanatical Jihadi leader Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad decides to lock down the Strait of Hormuz, or al-Qa'ida attacks the Saudi oil fields, the consequences for the U.S. and world economy would be dire. In addition, if Venezuela's Hugo "Little Castro" Chavez chooses to sell his oil elsewhere, the U.S. would be in real trouble.

Energy is our most vital national-security interest.

Suffice it to say, energy is the life-blood of the U.S. economy. As such, it is our most vital national-security interest. A quick review of the top U.S. oil providers lends some perspective to the complexity of our strategic relationships with those providers. All the partisan political posturing aside, the real "crisis" at the fuel pump is about world supply and demand, however disconcerting that might be.

In the event that a supply wild card is played and the critical balance of our oil supply is interrupted, there will be no easy solution. We are 20 years behind the curve in terms of oil exploration and refinement and nuclear power development, and we will stay that far behind as long as Democrats continue to obstruct the enactment of an intelligent domestic energy policy.

  So I some dude rear-ended me today. Now I'm all sore and stuff. God damnit. This is a situation that will require me talking on the phone to strangers, and that really bugs me. I hate when I am in a situation where I don't have a choice but to talk on the phone to strangers.


The second he hit me, the first thought was "Fuck.....phone conversations ensue.....fuck."


The second thought was "Oh yeah, the other people in my car. I wonder if they're all okay."


I'm a bad person.

I hear voices in them.

*something tells me I may be the only GTer here that doesn't own (or want to own) a cell phone. People can bother me at work and on my home phone. I don't want to be available every place I go.

No, I completely agree. I feel like it's the same with email now... and it really really bothers me. I have a mobile for safety reasons, and it does help when I need to meet up with people, but if someone wants to get ahold of me I feel like people get frustrated when I don't pick it up because I'm out with friends/at the library/just have it on silent because I don't want to be bothered. And I just want to ask, "Why do you think you have the right to reach me whenever you want?" Sometimes I just feel harrassed.

I also feel the same way with email nowadays though, too. My professors will email me and get frustrated when I don't email back immediately (some days I only check my email in the morning and evening, other days a lot more, and some days none). I hate that. It really pisses me off sometimes. I think that this hectic world has meant that people don't like to take their time or stick to a schedule... the key word is always "convenient." I hate when people try to change a meeting time at the last minute or expect you to check your email so they can add something to your workload before the next day, etc. I don't know why this is such a touchy point with me, but I guess I sometimes just want to be left alone AND I want people to take their committments seriously (even if it's just meeting for tea) instead of assuming that if they need to change something, they can. It's just not courteous.

(I sound really harsh, and I don't mean it that way... I know people have things come up. It's not like I'm some ridiculous person about it... I just wish people would slow down a bit so they wouldn't have to constantly be rearranging things with other people.)

Hmmm. this was the most unproductive rant ever, but i feel better.

thank you.

  totally off topic, i just had the most random dream. I don't dream very often, but when i remember them i always remember them for a long long time. or atleast i think i do, i suppose i wouldn't really know... anyway.
I'm in this bus, there's a few other people on it, no one important or specific. the driver looked somewhat like a fat robert johnson, wearing a blue bus drivers uniform, including cap.
we're driving up this massive jungle mountain type thing, and it's pitch black outside. then the bus starts lsiding down the track, i mean like properly like that bit in jurassic park two. everyone starts screaming. i don't panic, i'm standing at the front, so i just hold on and kind of wait to see what happens. it happens again, and i'm still just the same. i start talking to the bus driver, nothing special, and then i notice out of the corner of my eye when i'm not looking properly at him the next time the bus falls it's because he's letting go of the handbrake and making us fall. i go up to him smile widely at him and just tell him 'bullshit', not angry or upset or scared, just plain truth. he starts to laugh a proper big laugh and gives me this big thumbs up, everyone else on the bus starts to laugh with him. then the dream just kind of melts away and i'm wide awake. i don't mean i wake up, i mean it just melts away sort of thing, sort of like the picture just melts away and i'm awake staring at the back of my eyelids. for the next ten or so minutes when i think of the bus drivers face all the hairs on my body stand on end.
it was one wierd dream, anyone know anything about reading into that? heh.

  Lol. I love how this thread is mostly Addi and Hif arguing, and then Mesh putting in random posts from to time, and gradually pulling the arguing into his randomness until everyone is just posting about whatever. Beautiful.

  Prom is going to be the most horrendously awkward scene ever.

I'm asking a boy. If he says yes, it will be awkward because we are friends and there's so much room to take these things the wrong way. And we have never hung out outside of class. If we dance it will be weird because everyone else around us will be serious couples pretty much having sex on the dance floor.

If he says no, we will probably never have a normal conversation again. I will be going in my host brothers group with all his friends and their dates. Without a date. This is also extremely awkward. They will get up to dance or whatever, and I will still be sitting. Ick.

I cannot avoid this painful night because I get free tickets for being foreign. Hooray for foreigners.

And being here, I miss the ball in NZ, which would have been super fun and I would have been with my not-awkward friends and gone to a raging afterball.

This can only turn out badly.

Can someone tell me if that's unusual? I don't think it is, but I skipped mine, this year. Two proms is enough anyway (I went with a friend, my sophomore year).

>it will be awkward because we are friends and there's so much room to take these things the wrong way.

and when you ask, you can't mention the fact that you aren't interested in him as more than a friend

>everyone else around us will be serious couples pretty much having sex on the dance floor.

in a vinyl dress, you could just wipe off the mess

Yeah so, I had another one last night. Only, worse than the first one. My subconcsiou is trying to tell me I'm a monster and should end myself before it's too late.

Nothing wrong with being a social outcast. Most people can go eat a dick, anyways.

It makes me sick. Who the hell can do something like that to a helpless little animal.
