A New Approach to Marriage (actually old) by Sophist.My friend was looking for a lasting relationship that would lead to marriage but he did not want to pay a dating service (that interviews and screens candidates). So I invited him to my blog. I have about 10 thousand subscribers (actually there are only 10 with 1,000 different nicks each). We made the usual posts and 5 women replied. To make a long story short, the one that seemed to be the best match turned out to be a man. Seriously,is employnment situationn so bad that Harvard MBAs hover around blogs to get a job at Nobody LLC?Greg, you get what you pay for. law of Capitalism.
OT: Can we do something about these oil speculators please? My god the price has dropped 14% in a week! Where are the congressional hearings? Where is the outrage? Where are the calls for an investigation?
Dr. Perry,Totally off topic, but…You might like this post.
Hey sbvor:You might find this Saleri commentary in the WSJ interesting since it dove tails nicely with that excellent post on your site: The World Has Plenty of Oil
Juandos,Thank you. That is an excellent commentary.That author suggests peak oil will occur “between 2045 and 2067”.That view is very much consistent with the EIA presentation which I commented on last month.Then again, my understanding is that this prediction does not factor in “unconventional oil resources ([coal liquefaction,] shale oil, tar sands, extra heavy oil)”.I should update that last link to include the 535 billion barrels of domestic oil we can very easily produce through coal liquefaction.
