    Re: Member/rep status and rank, rep power; CPF$ banked vs in pocket

    I concede, to an extent, in the matter of definition and offer the word vernacular as my reason for doing so.
    WB n1ckel5--for you, two words...spontaneity and serendipity, 2 concepts that, imho, make life an wonderful adventure. It is a pleasure to share ideas and of course, have the mysteries of cell phone technology revealed here. It fuels my nerdish spirit and educates my oh so non-geek person. Smiles.

    lol

    if technology is an example of serendipity, i hope to one day stumble across an invention that solves the world's dependancy on oil.

    i'm much more comfortable in thinking that our current and future state of being is derived from scientific analysis and applied concepts.

    example: cellular phones (or telephones) are the result of analyzing the discovered concept of sound's wave-like properties and the manipulation of electron movement to form electricity and circuits.

    but to agree with you, it takes a small discovery to build off of. you can't build an airplane without understanding gravity!

    Re: Member/rep status and rank, rep power; CPF$ banked vs in pocket

    Alternatives HAVE been discovered..they are called biofuels and solar power. Both in use, but not to the extent that makes a difference on our dependency on oil. Petroleum industry is huge and goes back to the earlier part of last century. Political and business alliances were formed back then and have only increased in their stranglehold. We the people are at their mercy. It seems to me, that those in power, politically, economically and socially really have no real interest in what is truly best for our nation and it's people...they seem to simply want to increase their power and squash yours and mine to nothingness. My apologies, but I am feeling terribly jaded this day. Can anybody offer proof otherwise?

    when i made that comment, i meant that i would have a feasable means to replace oil. something that consumers would actually buy into.

    despite the oil industry's influence, if a car was available with a 'free' energy source, we would buy it. solar is free, but not practical. biofuels are not readily available. that is why i chose that topic to make my point, not to open an oil debate.

    this topic went from how rep works & user titles to the definition of ignorance to oil. incredible.

    The reality is biofuels could be ready and available in a relatively short time...but big business and politics create major obsatcle to that happening. Corn farmers for example, get subsidized for growing crops of which a huge portion goes to waste. Hemp, is a potential resource that is bug and disease resistant, will grow in hugely diverse environments and has a plethora of uses, biofuel being one, is completey renewable and has lower watering needs. The Emperor Wears No Clothes by Jack Herer is a most enlightening, informative book, that gives astounding details with legitimate noted sources of reference. You can read portions at www.jackherer.com
    History, politics, big business,technology, chemistry, biology, medicine, journalism, and more intertwine for a truly fascinating look at how this country is truly run and how policies come to be. I challenge you to take a serious look, then talk to me about feasibility and relative ready availability.

    Not to sound rude, but you missed the point.

    But despite what mr. herer has to say about all of the above mentioned, it ultimately comes down to the consumer. So until the consumer is ready to invest into these fuels, they will not become readily available. Regardless of who is influencing the consumer, this is reality.

    My point was more along the lines of bringing a new technology to center stage that would be so innovative that consumers would abandon the convenience and standardness of gasoline.

    In that this discussion has digressed from the theme of this forum, and in the interest of maintaining some propriety here, I suggest moving this to chit chat, where I shall start a new thread: Change of venue; discussion con't.
