    When I was learning to drive in 2003 gas averaged $.88 a gallon to as much as 1.02 a gallon and then the war on terror started and gas prices havent gone down since. They have only gone up

    it is fun though to see sometimes a screwup in a gas piricing macghine and suddenly people filling their SUV for 3 bucks or so. {one gas station in Iowa the attendant hit ENTER too soon so the price per gallon {for 3 hours} was $.36}

    When I started, premium gas was about 35 cents / gallon and that was the high end of the scale.

    if we had our own domestic fuel sources we wouldn't need to be worrying about whether or not any war in the Middle East is gonna affect our gas prices

    Since 2018, there have been periods where we export more oil than we import. So obviously, we have our own energy sources.

    In my opinion, we should do two things, and I think we could tell the middle east to go fly a kite

    1: Prohibit the export of oil in any form. It is clearly a resource which has a major impact on almost all aspects of society, and should be treated as such.

    2: Tell the enviros that are impeding the development of domestic oil production to go sit in the dark cave they want everyone else to live in and shut up.

    No, I don't mean willfully destroy the environment. But oil resources can be extracted responsibly and safely, but these idiots want none of it. They just want to stifle oil (and in fact all other sources of energy as well) just for the sake of stifling it.

    Still no Founders Patch. Last time I heard from Stargate Command telling me that they had to change manufacturers, and that was Feb 27.

    At this point, it's probably not happening.

    Found something about not shipping till December on reddit.. But they didn't say of what year.

    Oh, and BTW, TOS is probably the best Trek series. Followed by TNG & Voyager

    My brother not passing along information.

    So, long story short, had to phone an ambulance on Friday to take my poor wee mum into hospital.

    When I left her on Friday evening, she was in a room of her own on the orthopedic ward. But when I went up to visit yesterday afternoon, she'd been moved into a larger room with three other ladies.

    A fact I only discovered when I knocked on the single room's door and found a different patient. I apologised and went in search of a nurse.

    Which leads me back to my brother. He'd visited earlier that afternoon, and given me a lift to the hospital.
    At no point did he tell me that mum had been moved.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    Happened to come across a bit of info regarding this fabulous patch... If you haven't received it by June 30th, they want you to send them a message.

    But hey, you already have it virtually... Every "founding member" got a virtual patch/badge even.

    Sunday bus services.

    My mum's still in hospital, and the direct bus station to hospital bus doesn't run on a Sunday.

    This means I have to get a different service, I'll still get there, it'll just take twice as long because it takes an indirect route all the way through Bandit Country.

    Not for the first time, I find myself wanting to strangle the long ago member of the local town planning committee who decided "Yeah, let's build a hospital on top of a bloody big hill in the middle of nowhere, and that's vastly inconvenient to get to by public transport."

    ^Sorry to hear, and that must be incredibly frustrating. We had a hospital like that a few towns away growing up. They put it smack dab in the middle of a summer resort town where it got so busy in the summer that it took at least an hour to get there even though we were only 15 minutes away.

    I make it a point never to read memos.

    But seriously, if I tried walking up the hill, I'd probably wind up having my first heart attack.

    The road is perfectly passable in good weather, mildly hazardous in heavy rain, and damn near lethal in winter conditions.

    well then I reckon it's quite fortuitous that they have a hospital on top of that hill then
