Comment Why grow raw materials? (Score 1) 242 242

I don't understand the need to grow food to be converted to ethanol. It seems stupid and a waste. ST1 is a Finnish energy producer that converts bio waste to ethanol. IMHO they get the bulk of their material from factories like bread makers. They also gather bio waste from city residents. I'm not completely sure what they do with the waste from ethanol production. http://www.st1.fi/puhtaampaa-siksi-halvempaa

Comment Off topic: I feel sorry for my American brethen (Score 1) 366 366

I know Europe and USA measure octane differently but still your fuel seems to suck. In Finland you have a choise between RON 95, 98 and E85(RON106). As a turbo enthusiast I would never use anything below RON98 and I've been very happy with E85.

Americas Army has always focused on realism. You can't run too fast, you can't jump too high or continously. If you fall too far you'll break a leg and bleed to death. And yes you usually die after the first hit from AK47. It's possible to have a medic bind your wounds, but you won't get to 100% health..you stay slow and weak. I used to play it a lot and loved it. Too bad they stopped making linux ports.

If money can't buy happiness, I guess you'll just have to rent it.
