You fuckers doing yer speculating should curl up and die instead.
I sprung out of blogging mode last night the moment my eyes landed on BB2's comment about the loss of Gary Moore—losing myself in my life of loving guitar heroes and transcendental vocalists who are now damn old—not willing or able, I don't know which, to face any of this for nearly a day.
The US fears that Saudi Arabia, the world's largest crude oil exporter, may not have enough reserves to prevent oil prices escalating, confidential cables from its embassy in Riyadh show.
The cables, released by WikiLeaks, urge Washington to take seriously a warning from a senior Saudi government oil executive that the kingdom's crude oil reserves may have been overstated by as much as 300bn barrels – nearly 40%.
The revelation comes as the oil price has soared in recent weeks to more than $100 a barrel on global demand and tensions in the Middle East. Many analysts expect that the Saudis and their Opec cartel partners would pump more oil if rising prices threatened to choke off demand.
I gotta say, I had this entire problem completely parsed by the time I was thirteen years old, and have endured all manner of karma for it my whole life, only to live to see for undeniably certain that I was right from the git. Yes, that and two bucks will buy me a cup of coffee, I know, but, you fuckers, WHY won't you wake up?
