The professional speculators left the theater a while ago, it's only the dumb and dumbers that stayed...Just like the real estate craze; I knew that it was going down the tube as soon as Flip that House show was on TV, now watch for gold taking a tumble.

Yes, it was obvious oil was going nowhere but to the $250 a barrel.

Aren't you prescient! That was about a year or more after things went south.

You might want to read up on fuel from either coal or biomass. Jet fuel is not that hot burning [much like kerosene] at around 400 degrees so AF1 will run just fine.

25 July 2005 was the release for Flip that house.

"Flip This House" (2005)

Details are SO important.

On what, do you propose? BHO doesn't want any more coal being mined. And you think we'll get jet fuel from corn husks? Dreamer. Maybe 30 years out. Not in this generation....

I guess I was too busy flipping foreclosed houses to notice. And what was the detail I missed on when that part of the equation began? In my state, that detail was so important, too.
