I already knew about this, but glad to see it posted here. I am sad that it has to be a Russian one instead of a US/Japan or French one, and wish it could be Thorium instead of Uranium, but those aren't available yet.

Agreed. But hey, how about taxing the super/ultra high-octane gas that the rich put into their speedsters and limos? They always buy premium because they feel their expensive car needs quality, gourmet fuel.
gas taxes have a disproportionate effect on the rural and low-income. If you want to tax gas, tax the high-octane blend that the rich put in their high-perormance cars, and leave 'regular' alone.
I have 65536 Ip addresses. Who wants to buy? $18 each.
San Francisco has a lot of things going for it, but humility is not one of them. Neither is affordability, nor freedom from crime, nor civil rights. In fact, the only real thing going for it is easy access to drugs and lots of high-paying jobs.
I am sure the unending drudgery of 16th century work will wear pretty thin within a year.
