A FEW RANDOM THOUGHTS WHILST THE OIL CHAMPERS CHILLS. riginal.
As an aussie foremost, before Ii admit to (whispers) being a human being and a non- integral part of the quiltwork of mankind's tapestry pertaining to intelligence above the average Norm...assuming the 'Normal' average of intelligence hangs somewhere within the confines of peaceful rationale and argumentive "you dunno vot you iz talkin' about iz vot all you know iz Riginal.
And if zere iz a Godz zen vi did he creates mankind to comz on earth ven zere voz no evil before zat voman AND zat manz shakez ze apple cart and partake of ze applz...HA! Vot a promiscuous pear! I Boris duz question zis. My theory iz zat Godz by Jesuz voz zo bored viz his son zat he sez to son "vill you before you iz begotten son begetzen off ze laptopz and go visit ze planet earth instead of sending ze people messages and miraclez on ze Youtubez.
Before ze funny manz viz dancing legz startz ze new religion. I amz Boris...i amz not ze trolley boy in Russia...i sell Olgaz cookiez on ze netz.Vich iz sometime known as ze e-basha for ze homeless...harmless trollez of ze rotten empire of ze rotten rotten capitalizmic umpire of ze vorld. If you buy vun cookie Olgaz vill givz you vun free orgasm. Russian slip of tongue...i meanz to meanz vun freez tongue lashing. Veather bar permitzing.Ve haf unlimited bottles of ze Chineze Vodka to vosh biccky down vis. You drop bi no! Zis is your faceless friendz Boris and smart cookie Olgaz viz ze verrry verrry cold tongue. You people in America may say too much r's. How you know zis ven you haven't seen Olgaz ass? Even Olgaz haf not seenz her ass for a vile az she so busy. Godz bless...
Neal6 your article on Saudi Dakota oil...very informative and no-one can argue with the salient facts you presented so well. Even if it wasn't a great article which it was, i would say it was because you're an AUSSIE and if America ever attacks us which they won't because we have a secret weapon...4 billion underground karate chopping military wombats (a creature that looks like a pollie but thinks before it has a dig) protecting our shale oil and a portable Ayres Rock to take-away and drop, i think we're pretty damn safe. Oh i forgot...we have a woman Prime Minister. "Hell hath no fury than that of an oiled up woman."
Neal you state that some billions are going to be spent by the Americans in a co-joint arrangement which obviously benefits both parties. Did the Australian government.or should i say IS the Australian government going to FORK (similar to sexual happening but with multiple prongs) any money out as you well know it is the tradition for Australia to force technology in a lot of cases overseas by non-supportive action? As has happened to research, people, etc.
Having that oil find is great as an article in the news on oil production a fair while back stated that the readily available oil would run out in 2014. So that puts that to rest. A bit like the knee- jerk action when our dams started drying up and the government signed a binding contract that even if cancelled the whole of money would have to be paid for a desalination plant that i'll be paying for the rest of my life Neal, and you further on into the future...possibly our kids?
Our dams are topped up,parts of Australia have flooded since. Maybe that money for the desalination plant could have been diverted to oil exploration via a small company? Another thing. We do send gaseous fuels etc overseas at a greatly reduced price compared to what OUR motorists pay? Next question, which i know you will canvas. Will this newfound treasure mean cheaper fuel all round or will the governments involved and greedy enterprise still take a massive cut and we get lumbered with 'marginally' cheaper fuel at the pump?
Will the "drill baby drill" attitude force alternative fuel research such as hydrogen and battery technology further into the background? Hydrogen fuel first being muted in the 1970's.I know there's storage problems and cleanliness of the fuel itself to overcome etc. Will some money from the bonanza be siphoned into research? Bearing in mind that the alien's junked fossil/shale fuels eons ago? (joking).
One other thought Neal. I know that a lot of oil will be sent to China etc. Will they then clean up their backyard. Or will they used improved profits to increase production, and buy more expensive face masks for the populace? Disregarding fuel for commerce etc, how many more cars trucks etc will it take to finally cover the planet to a point where gridlock reigns supreme? Not a greenie...love cars and tinkering of. The year 4000. Ceo's sitting round in bubble bath. "Well gentlemen we're finally out of fuels...any suggestions?" Mavis the cleaning lady wheels in a rusty bike. "Whaat the hell is that woman?" "It's a bike sir!" "What sort of fuel powers it Mavis?" "MANPOWER SIR!" Ceo's in unison..."piss off!"
Like to leave with a joke.Headlines in Australia. "The Prime Minister of Australia has been re-elected on the basis of her promise to HALVE the use of FOSSIL fuel in Parliament.(place in Australia where the brightest shout idiotic asides at each other...then go to lunch). The Parliamentry Bar will be closed at MIDDAY and the FOSSILS sent home!"
I was joking about yews attacking us guys. We're not back stabbers, thieves,and liars. That was our ancestors...and present pollies. Ridgy Didge. Cheers...
