damn that's crazy. I know gas over there is always more expensive than other places in the US, but still. and I just read it could get to as high as $7!

would be so nice not to always have to rely on a car to get to just about everywhere in this country. but thanks to numerous bad urban planning decisions being made back in the day (think you posted a good video about that on here recently), a lot of us have no option to walk to get anywhere really. other than down a street of other box shaped abodes with patches of grass in front of them.

LA had its throat slit by the oil companies long ago. if you've seen Who Framed Roger Rabbit.. that's basically what happened to the street cars and light rail in LA (minus the cartoons).  happened everywhere in the US as well in different ways. 

didn't know gas was so high there now. it's stayed pretty much in typical ranges here in portland.

What do you mean a finite resource is becoming more and more expensive?!

some of it is false inflation.. execs deciding to use inflation as an excuse and raising prices. exon/mobile made more profit than previous quarters. inflation angle is bullshit in a lot of sectors i guess. 

whatever happens in ukraine could change some things though.. at least over there. pipelines and such. but who knows. it's all a shit show. buy a bike. take a bus. walk. stay home. fart in a jar for profit. 

it's a shame there aren't more trains because no one here knows how to drive.. well.. maybe like 2 out of 5 people do.

^^ dan p is one of those conservative's that wears a suit then claims he's a trillonaire (according to his website) and wants to help you be one too by selling you a bunch of lectures where he tells you how much you suck and how much he doesn't. he also has a lot of real estate in .uk like this castle where, if you pay him enough, you can go there so he can berate you for an entire week.

Yeah this is really just Americans losing the subsidies around gas prices that have been kept up for so long. Still sucks, cause the real fwp is the lack of good public transport in most North American cities.

it's not losing subsidies as much as it's price increases using inflation as an excuse. but i think that will just continue as the oil companies get twitchy about new technology and electric cars etc.

I already wanna quit my job that I started on tuesday.  My coworkers are old rednecks and i dont fit in with them.  One of them drops n bombs casually for laughs and is constantly shitty to everyone around him.  It's a horrible place to work.

Ugh. So sorry, homie. Can you talk to the boss or HR about that? Or is your boss the one dropping n bombs? If you just started, who knows, maybe they may appreciate the intel? Good luck, whatever the case. I couldn’t stomach that.

I mean it’s probably both, which is why California prices are almost as much as BC, but on par or slightly more expensive than Alberta (heavily subsidized and no provincial sales tax). 
Inflation is real (not to the extent some sectors are gouging us for), and as pressure from other types of transportation becomes stronger, the price of gas will continue to increase. 
Even some of the OPEC cartel are realizing this and investing in EVs and other forms of energy use. Still a long ways to go before things get “clean”.

Sorry, I forgot we were in the SFWP thread, not the “oh shit the planet is dying” thread.

There is no HR there.  The place is out in the country where everyone is like that, and the guy is one of the most important workers at the place so i doubt saying something would do much.  I think i just need a different job.

it's true. i've been awake since 3am and i don't know why. i went to get some new lightbulbs because the porch light was out and i only had 40w LED bulbs which aren't bright enough. 

bought 2 lightbulbs. got home put in a new one. didn't work. had to take it back and swap for working ones. 

2 trips for light bulbs. my god wtf is happening in the universe. 

now i'm watching the netflix doc about Boeing. "Downfall" which is about the Max airplane that was grounded because of crashes/problems w/the stupid stall system and poor quality control and everything is terrible. also, caffeine.

@prdctvsmin addition to the lushest soul pads available, also let us know if there's a way any of us can help practically.

it's not too bad where I am, mostly first world complaints about not being able to go out. I'm up on a hill sort of so less risk of being washed out, though a break has formed in my garage roof and is allowing water to seep in constantly which I'm keeping an eye on.

Kept thinking about ordering McD's cheeseburgers with bacon all week.  The "with bacon" bit was the part that most compelled me.  Finally ordered them last night, got home, and the whole fucking point of the order was absent (bacon).  The disappointment is still haunting me.

All of my dreams over the past few months have been about failing to accomplish impossible tasks.

 

Last night I dreamt that I had to take care of chickens and turkeys and for some reason I just couldn't get the grain to their feeders, and I couldn't refill their water.  I kept trying and it wouldn't work, and I was disappointing everybody who put their trust in me.

In other news, I hate my entire life and I want to die.
