How *not* to Survive in a Post Peak Oil World

Not as rare as you might think

Not as rare as you might think

 

Yahoo always runs such great AP headlines. There is really not much else to say. I like that after the crazy Chinese guy beheaded the dude, he then proceeded to cut off other body parts and eat them. That’s an A for effort. But the ad campaign: that’s just stupid. Nobody ever calls it “car rage” or “bus rage,” they call it “Road Rage.” And busses are on roads. Unless they’re AirBusses (then they’re nationally subsidized and anti-competitive).

Besides, I once did a cross-country 60-hour deal on a Greyhound and there’s nothing fucking relaxing about that. For one, you don’t sleep. Not if you want to keep your stuff. And even if you wanted to doze, the chairs are too uncomfortable for it. Plus, I think they stopped every four hours to refuel and you had to get off.

The moral of this story is that knife fights are totally in!
