This makes sense, but refineries takes years to build and perhaps a decade to come online. They also need to be built next massive water resources (which is why so many in the gulf are next to the Mississippi river) for cooling purposes and barge access.
A nice dramatization of this is in the 1998 HBO special "From The Earth to The Moon 5: Spider". You can get it on Netflix.
I don't have to. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D...
Well that escalated quickly. I think that with the obvious discrimination against rural-dwellers in your post (and the assumption that I am one), people will decide for themselves who is "civilized".
Wait, why am I wasting my time on this? I usually don't respond to AC's. Have a good one.
My owning a firearm does not affect you in any way whatsoever. I've never fired it at anyone and I never plan on it either. If you're that worried about the your' safety and that of others around you, there are far more deadlier things that can be outlawed (cars, alcohol, high-fructose corn syrup, etc).
I wish I never posed the original question, I'm getting modded into oblivion
You think the government actually keeps you safe and free?
That's cute; you just keep believing that.
After the Newton School shooting you posted on Slashdot that you would be willing to give up your second amendment right to prevent something like that from happening again. What other rights would you be willing to give up?
This begs the quesion......if Snowden hadn't released this info, would this "change" be taking place? I wish I could say that this was an admission from the White House that what he did was right, but we know that's not the truth.
So should this extend to private flights?
This is why I laugh when I read articles about self-driving cars and car-to-car communication. The police will hate this because it will absolutely ruin ticket revenue.
Thank you, that was the case in Baton Rouge as well. I'm really surprised at how well we handled this.
Serious question.....3-6 inches of ice without snow? Like an ice skating rink?

This. This is what most aren't understanding about this. We really don't get snow here....more like sleet that barely accumulates. Most of the roads and almost all the bridges had 2-inch thick sheets of ice on them with hardly any snow (can't speak for Atlanta).
I've driven in place that have 6-inches of snow or more, and it was definitely easier than driving to go through what we got the past few days.
As stated in my post and earlier in this thread, it was "every 5 years at the most". There are some 8-9 year intervals in there.
