9. Yeah, I thought of that a second after I posted

 

But that will debt burn as long as they can make it. Slaving at a day job in the meantime to pay it off doesn't sound like the best usage of time. My advice is to get out there and live your life on your terms while we still can.


You've got it backwards on energy costs - they're falling and will fall for the foreseeable future




We've extracted the low hanging fruit. Now were burning bitumen sands with a 3:1 to 5:1 return on energy invested. That does signal a coming age of cheap enery


And government debt? Just Paper

Energy builds economies, and dollars buy it. Debt will mater soon enough if it doesn't already.


Doom and gloomers usually have a comet to catch, and they're just a drag on the rest of us.

Funny how you don't address climate change, which billions are predicted to face famine because of. Are you not in the mood to laugh off famine?


and a near-extinction event is not an extinction event.

No, but when everyone but the Bushes and Kochs starve to death, its not always a walk in the park either. But, hell, Im glad theyll make it!


Knowledge can never be a waste. never.

No, but you don't need $100K in debt to obtain knowledge
