What happens when we run out of Oil?

I've got to address this because I'm hearing it lately with everything going on in Iraq.

So people think we're at the mercy of these guys because we need their oil. Now, I might agree at first. But let's throw technology into the mix and look a little bit back on history.

In the 1850's the world was convinced that we would run out of fuel. Namely, the whales in the ocean that we hunted down for their blubber. Predictions ran wild that we would go back to the stone age once we killed off all the whales. At this time there was plenty of crude oil, in fact it messed up a lot streams and rivers.

Now, when we finally did kill off enough whales, the price of blubber went up and behold.. Someone found a new 'fuel'. Refined Crude-OIL! You see technology will always find a new solution.

So here's what's very exciting. Gas is still $2.00 a gallon. Heating your home is still 'reasonable'. But if the cost of oil goes too, high technology will find another way.

Interesting enough, General Electric already has the technology for a mega-windmill that can power 480 homes. They are considering building windmill farms in Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota that could power our entire country. Think about that. No pollution and a limitless supply of energy. So what about cars? Well, electric cars are really are not that far off. Hybreds are going to make the oil last a hell of a lot longer anyway.

So there you have it. Technology will always find a way. Don't worry about running out of resources. We'll always find more.

Thanks for all the Emails!

At this time of year, I want to thank all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me your chain letters over the past 12 months.

Thank you for making me feel safe, secure, blessed, and wealthy. Because of your concern I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains. I no longer drink Pepsi or Dr Pepper since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put ‘Under God’ on their cans.

I no longer drink anything out of a can because I will get sick from the rat feces and urine. I no longer use Saran wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer. I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS. I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day. I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me. I no longer receive packages from UPS! or FedEx since they are actually Al Qaeda in disguise. I no longer shop at Target since they are French and don't support our American troops or the Salvation Army.

I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore and Uzbekistan. I no longer eat pre-packaged foods because the estrogens they contain will turn me gay. I no longer eat KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers. I no longer buy expensive cookies from Neiman Marcus since I now have their recipe. I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me and St. Theresa's novena has granted my every wish.

Thanks to you, I have learned that God only answers my prayers if I forward an email to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes. (I don't remember that in the Bible.) I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl who is about to die in the hospital (for the 1,387,258th time). I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program.

Yes, I want to thank all of you soooo much for looking out for me that I will now return the favor! If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 PM this afternoon and the fleas from 12 camels will infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump.

I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's beautician! Honest!

Open Source Coding

I've been using a forum for a few websites for my friends:

For each one of these, I used a pre-done forum called snitz forums. This is great. I love open source code and can hardly believe they just give all this work away. But who am I to complain.

Each of the sites is using an MS-Acess Database since I don't expect them to get much traffic. So if you're thinking of starting your own message board, Snitz Forums is great.
