Dear christ, I wish I didn't own a Truck

  1. Someone linked it to me - was from Hot or Not...


  2. I bought my wife a new car last year, and we looked at the hybrids but dang what a rip, we got a 5speed corolla (40mpg) at half the price. After living in Europe for 8 years $3 doesn't seem so bad, majority of europeans drive diesels (diesel is taxed less=lower price) unfortunately here the diesel is the same as Reg gas. Sure wish I still had my 81 diesel rabbit (50-60mpg, had to push uphill though).

    Well that's definitely hot but $5k+ for a bike is a bit much for me!

    The Colnago C4 Ferrari Edition is $8500

    Ouch! Does that come in a hybrid?

  8. Yeah, only if it's waxed...

  9. Yeah see the non hybrid get 12MPG and the hybrid get 13MPG.. but when u buy the car it comes in both models... one MPG is for speed >100MPH and the other is for <100MPH

  10. Honestly if I was big oil I'd charge more also. That's pretty much the point of business, make as much money as possible.

    I understand why people don't like that, though.

    LoL - true. But knowing what I know now, I'd still probably buy my gas guzzling Jeep. It doesn't matter how smart I am if I'm not thinking with that organ.

    Kind of the same reason why I try to pack muscle on my body. Yes, my "MPG" (with food) is worse than those skinny marathon runners, and it would be cheaper to eat less, especially if the price of food all of a sudden doubles - but I'll still bite the bullet and buy more food...and just complain about it.

    If I ever get a second vehicle, MPG will be high on the priority list.

    NOTE: doggzj EDITED out that last sentance while I was quoting it, most likely to not offend anyone. So while most of my response was centered on that, I think everyone should take into account that this particular comment was removed, and nobody should get upset over it. I just didn't want to delete all that I typed, cuz, well, I typed it. LoL

    But he's right anyways. I'll be the first to admit that I have done some things in the past that weren't the best for me financially, and I'll be the first to admit that I'll do it again. I'll just blame the testosterone...

    Looks like it's time to buy that cabin in Montana, now if only I can find one with a gym with lots of chicks!

    I've got the numbers of a few militias up there if you want a hook up.

    When I said chicks I meant hot girls, not baby chickens, lol. Anyway I would have to get a gun rack for my truck, and I don't think I can afford to make it that far at $3 a gallon

  15. FYI,

    Crude closed at another record high today $75.17 Per Barrel.


    Local news reported substantial increase in pawn shop business as people are liquidating valuables to pay for gas(Not a joke).

    wow I edited in under 30 seconds and you still quoted me!

  17. My futures stocks are kicking ass, i made 1G in a week from all of this gas crap. ITs kinda sad, b/c i know what ramifications this will have int he long run but for right now its kinda good.

    See! you're paying for your truck!

    But seriously, if I had a product, and I could double my price and still sell 90% as much, of course I'd do it. It's smart business.

    Investors see this and that's why oil futures are going through the roof.

  19. I am so...SO glad I bought my 1995 Honda Accord and got rid of that POS gas hog Ford Explorer. Even at an avg of 28mpg (32Hwy/25City), Im still paying out the ass, as Im on the road at least an hour a day for the work commute, driving to the gym, etc.

    There's plenty of ways for the individual to ease the financial stress of higher gas prices. Biodiesel, straight-up veg oil conversion, even building an ethanol still in your backyard. (most newer vehicles will run on straight ethanol without a problem). Most of these methods cost an initial investment of ~$2000,or about what an SUV driver is going to spend on gas this year. When I get a house in a year or so, its the first project on my list.

    That crap about corn ethanol costing more energy to produce that it gives of when burned...what a load of BS. Brazil went nearly energy independant in a YEAR using sugar cane to produce ethanol (which is far more efficient than corn). You're telling me our stupid, STUPID ****ing government, who doesnt have a problem spending 100's of billions of dollars to rebuild a goat farm in the middle of nowhere couldnt subsidize some type of initiative to encourage farmers to grow a crop that was more efficient at fuel production? Does giant fat ass America really need anymore high fructose CORN syrup??

    I dont want to start an argument with anyone, Im just venting because I think about all the chances over the past 20 years America had to reduce its petroleum consumption and we just kept ****ing off...well, now we're going to reap what we've sown.

    It sucks for us, but Im glad gas is going up, hell I hope its up to $10.00 a ****ing gallon by 2008. Maybe that will prompt these stupid ****ing money whoring ******* politicians of ours to get their heads out of their ****ing asses and do something that's actually good for the country and the planet.

    I think the biggest reason why there hasnt been a massive push for alternative energy is that they havent figured out how to effective charge money for it yet. Hydrogen cells run off water, Solar from the sun, wind from the air...how are they going to line their pockets selling free unlimited natural resources? Greedy ****ing *******s! I hope they all burn in hell.

    Damn I need to start investing...

  21. BigV,
    You can protest all you want, but it's pure thermodynamics that EtOH consumes more energy in making it than it gives off.

    BTW - it WILL lower your gas mileage. Speaking of EtOH...


    This is a cyclical business. I can't wait until the next turndown.

  22. BigV,

    Yeah, as I stated Im just venting frustration. I always read your posts on the energy topics thoroughly because you actually work in the field...

    Ive read the Berklee report on the thermodynamics of corn-based ethanol, but I'm sure there are other routes to ethanol that would provide a positive energy balance. Maybe this guy's onto something:

    http://www.newswise.com/articles/view/511547/?sc=dwhp

    Another plant or algae that can produce ethanol without the need for distillation, solar powered harvesters, etc. Its futuristic but it would be nice if there was at least a clear plan in place on how the world is going to supply its energy needs in the next century and after. Oil wont last forever at current rates of consumption...a lot of things need to change and it wont happen overnight.

    BTW - it WILL lower your gas mileage. Speaking of EtOH...
    That's true. I'm sure that design changes could be implemented that would maximize the fuel efficency of EtOH. Maybe EtOH isnt even the answer, who knows. Honestly, I dont know enough about it to hypothesize with any accuracy...should have gone to school for biochem

  24. Actually - chemical engineering.


    But, biochem would have been fun. Then, I could have debated Big Cat's crap about AI use during PCT.
    Lol! I just went through one of his threads the other day and though the *same* thing With bio-chem I could have worked on developing a new form of plant life that could generate refined petroleum from human stupidity. We'd be saved!

    People need to realize that the biggest portion of this price spike is due to CONGRESS - that means BOTH PARTIES.
    People making dumb statements about Repubs this and Repubs that and Bush this and Bush that about them causing this spike are flat out stoooooooooopid.
    Yep. I agree. I take the generalized approach and just can't stand any of them
