ARG! It's called E-C-O-N-O-M-I-C-S(a little late)

While I don't like the high gas prices, am I the only person who understands supply and demand?

Let's see, our situation is as follows: we have high(and increasing) demand for fuel. We have a limited supply of and ability to produce fuel. This means, of course, higher prices FOR THE CONSUMER. That also means more money for the producers. It's just how market economics work, folks.

Can we get the FUCK away from OMGWTFBBQing at companies over making a profit, even an obscene one? We the consumers are at fault for these prices AND THE OIL COMPANY'S PROFITS. If we didn't have to drive around in fucking cars that guzzle gas like it's going out of style or drive cars tuned for performance over efficiency, we wouldn't be in this mess. We won't even mention driving obscene distances for our jobs. Last time I checked, I wanted American companies to actually make money. It's good for the economy. And the more money the better. I didn't hear anyone bitching when auto companies were making money hand over fist on the sales of trucks and SUVs(well, other than the environmentalists and I was right there with them - I have always hated SUVs and tolerate trucks as long as they're used to actually haul things other than your overweight ass to and from the office).

In summation, can't afford the $100 bill to fill up your SUV/truck? Get a car that gets better mileage and SHUT THE FUCK UP.

P.S.: Yeah, I know, it's spelled P-O-L-I-T-I-C-S, but the topic still burns my ass

(no subject)

I've gotten sick of these things, but on a lark I took it.

So Good! :D

Oh, yes, somehow you made it. Did you cheat? I hope not. Sophocles is reported to have said, "I would prefer even to fail with honor than to win by cheating." Meh, I'll trust you this time. Anyway, I hope you've had a good time.

My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

It blows me away that I scored better than 99% in both categories. I am assuming I am one of the few in my age group and gender to take it.
