"RIDICULOUS" HAS NO "E"
The title's just a public service announcement. What I want to talk about is that gas now costs $3.25 at the cheap station near my office. That's three god damn dollars and a quarter.
I read an article once in Wired to the effect of "high gas prices are good because it gives the oil companies more money to research alternative energy." With all the money those dudes are getting now, I expect to see cars that run on fucking dilithium next month.
It also occurs to me that it's not as if oil companies were exactly poor to begin with. It's not like they had zero dollars to put towards research before gas went above two bucks a gallon. Who do I stab in order to rectify this. Where do I emplace the blades.
