As soon as equipement for utilizing alternative energy sources go into mass production then the costs would go down, and the money will stay in the country's own economy instead of sending it to the middle-east. Oil prices are very high at the moment and it doesn't look like they will go down soon (if they'll come down at all). Oil isn't going to last forever, we could save ourselves a lot of trouble in terms of damage to the environment and public health (and the cost of that to the economy, as if the damage in itself isn't reason enough). We deserve politicians who can think beyond these short-term solutions like in Alaska.

I essentially agree. But, to date, it seems we have not had a politician anywhere be able to adequately articulate a way to achieve this goal.

I think that's really what I dislike about the Alaska drilling thing, that it's just a short-term solution. But admittedly not a heck of alot of good alternative ideas have come up. Maybe it's a creativity crisis.

heck if we could be motivated enough to put a man on the moon in less than 10 years who knows what we could discover if we put our hearts and minds to it.

Jackpot

I honestly do not go hiking without my wested modified A2 bomber jacket. That jacket serves me very well.

Indy IV should be great, I too have the DVD but down here they didn't have the bonus disk (wasn't in like every 10th copy of the Best Buy thing). Probably should look on ebay.

I am waiting for the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles to come out on DVD.

Yay, we can now rule over FYM, and then the world




Best.Bit.Ever. (of course this was the jokey pic, with the mobile phone replacement made after ET Special Edition but we all know what I mean because google images this was as close as I could get)

It's not entirely OT, because um..... Indy was in Alaska in the 20's and wound up finding oil... the perfect excuse.
