OIL, WINE CONSUMED
Why so few posts from me yesterday? Because I was at LUNCH, for hours, drinking EXPENSIVE WINE. Looks like Margo enjoyed a similarly disabling experience. Check out her analysis of a John Howard "peech", and this cogent assessment of current global realities:
The world’s oil is running out and oil is destroying the world we live in, environmentally and in the Middle East.
Oil is destroying the world? We’d better burn it, then. In this.

Oil is running out?
Doesn't she or her minions ever fact-check anything?
Check out oil reserves from the 70s til now.
New tech will bring more online. She's talking in a narrow-minded sense.
i sure hope you didn't drink any froggy pee! only grange for you...
Wow, Lucky for us the very substance that is destroying the environment and the ME is soon to run out. Remember, burn more fuel for a healthier and more peaceful world!
Why do you think Americans drive SUV's and sports cars!? We are trying to make the world more peaceful and clean!
Oil isn't really running out, it's just trying to break out for a walk around the block, a restaurant dinner and the latest movie...
"Lunch"? Did someone say "Lunch"?
So where do you chuck yer date in an MS8? In the glovebox? Under the hood as a carbon-based, interactive oil-filter monitor? Danglin' an' flappin' from the rear-view mirror/shaving thingy
You haven't thought this through have you?
I rather wondered that too. Given that the main reason for buying a sports car is to score tasty fillies, this would seem to be something of a drawback.
We shoudl burn it in one of these instead.
Sweet Zombie Mahomet.
Not only is it insanely fast, but you can carry THREE hotties around with you. (And a few more in the trunk.)
Margo's logic is running out, and her "logic" is destroying the world in which we live, intellectually and in Aussie Land.
I like! But sometimes you need to have room for the girlfriend -- in something like this Koenigsegg CC 8S.
If I had my way, I'd have a sports car with more than one seat, and one of those Elfins. I would assume it's a midlife crisis thing.
Without scarcity there can be no thought control - THAT's why o'gram is sucking up all the planet's hydrocarbons!
A car with only one seat? I think I'm in love at last!
"So where do you chuck yer date in an MS8?"
Usually on the driver's lap... sometimes on the floor between his legs...
Nonsense. You tie him to the front of the vehicle, like a deer.
I'm very much interested in hearing from those who've survived a date with you, Andrea. The stories they must tell! :)
'scuse me, are these Clubman vehicles street-legal in Australia? They sure look like something the DOT would hang you for having in the USA.
I don't know much about cars, but aren't those kit cars considered totaly uncool? And 44 grand, isn't that a little cheap for a decent ve-hickle?
"aren't ... kit cars considered totaly uncool?"
Depends on the kit car.
Bradley GT -- uncool
Lotus 6 & 7 -- definitely cool
"Margo: The people I consider friends tell me when they think I'm making a mistake. That's what friends are for."
Margo, your entire career is a mistake. Can I be your fried?
I meant friend. But I can be her "fried" as well.
Sortelli, why do you assume that anyone survived?
"Survived"? They were supposed to do that? Oops.
