I suppose that it all depends on what people think is likely to happen. Then we act accordingly and prepare accordingly.
However, I think it is impossible to be prepared for the things we don’t know could happen-black swans if you will. Events with a small (very small) chance of happening but with a large impact. But, we can be prepared for some…[Read more]
I guess what I’m finding hard to categorically work out is which factor is affecting which factor more:
eg is PO (and affordability) affecting the capability of economies to sustain their debt load, or is their debt load affecting the affordability of extracting oil and financing future projects? Does that make sense?
I can see what you’re…[Read more]

Your oilshockwave scenario is interesting to re-read. What do you think of the coming uber-credit crunch? I’m starting to think that the resultant lack of access to credit/money will cause many of the same problems and will be a precursor to the scenario you outline. Kind of like a training run…haha.
Interesting-20 minutes for a riot! I remember being in the UK during the trucker’s blockade of refineries and it took three weeks (IIRC) or so for supermarkets to run out. They had security guards stopping people getting aggressive with each other….

BlueWren-I like the fact that you’ve done your own research on this and have found a path that you’re comfortable with. I have to say I’m in agreement about the kind of drugs that you’re talking about-I see what’s in them and what the side effects can be. I have read some ideas pointing towards the use of calcium in our bones to make our blood…[Read more]
The body will usually attempt to keep your blood at a certain pH level of around 7.4 by homeostatic processes. You have chemoreceptors which monitor this level and ‘report’ back to the brain which can then attempt to mitigate any abnormal changes by the use of buffers in the blood. Your kidneys and your lungs do a lot of this…[Read more]
Hey Ahning, why not get a recumbent? Much more energy efficient, supposedly. And less strain on backs etc. Hills aren’t a problem, if you have gears.
I love my bike but I’m trying to work out how we can sustain the crude-produced parts and lubes etc. or whether there will be alternatives in the near future. Olive oil on my chain? Or Bran oil or…[Read more]
Just in case we didn’t have enough anger directed in Monsanto’s general direction…
Can anyone give links to any reliable articles or sites in which there is discussion of how the carbon trade scheme is to be run by the likes of Goldman Sachs? Having heard that rumour, it makes me wonder just how easy it would be for the noble purpose of any scheme like this to be subverted.
I think that the richer countries are in so much debt that they can’t borrow any more to help out anyone else. The magic printing presses aren’t really helping in the long term. If they get into trouble on a massive scale, solvency-wise, then I wonder who is going to bail them out. Can the Martians bail the IMF out?
Just saw this thread and and was about to read it when a man and his wife knocked at the door.
He is a local guy and he does runs to Rocklea markets here in Brisbane and gets orders from local people. Then he buys stuff(basically in bulk) and gets better prices for the people who sign up with him. I’m willing to give him a go. It’ll be a while…[Read more]
Good thinking thejamtin. I like it. I’d be up for something like that. I’m in Brissie. Did you have ideas about storage? Made me think of Landshare Oz but maybe have Storeshare Oz, instead?
I don’t have heaps of space-maybe I just need to arrange it better.

I’m also interested in trying to follow the trends but have no idea where to start.
What websites do you keep an eye on?
I usually check out Zerohedge.com for some contrarian info and data on happenings-especially on global commodity markets. (Beware the comments section though.…[Read more]

A personal favourite of mine is the one where a boy begs to learn to how become enlightened. To see if he is qualified, the master asks a simple question. After much thought, the boy gives the correct answer.
“Well done. Come to me in a year and I will begin training you.”
“Thank you Master.” The boy said.…
I always appreciate the honest(and sometimes painful) truth. I remember killing chickens for food at my granny’s place years ago so I guess I wasn’t sheltered from reality as much as some city kids. Stupidmarket-haha. Love the term. Hopefully one day we won’t rely on it as we do in our family at the moment. We’ve only just started this journey,…[Read more]
My beliefs(different to the things that I think I know) have been growing and changing and mutating over 40 years(Maybe longer if I were to believe the reincarnation thing).
So I have studied, in my quiet places, Islam, because it was the first organised religion I was exposed to. Sufism, because it is a mystical and passion filled thread…[Read more]

I believe in everything… After all where does the universe end and then what’s after that and after that….
Hmmm, strong the force is in Mossy.
I’d say you can mix it in a food processor with the plastic blade. if you have one. Or if you have a bigger mixer with a K hook, it works nicely.
As for fillings, try bluecheese and bacon, or bluecheese and pumpkin.
Pine nuts (roasted) and fetta.
Minced pork, chilli, lime and lime leaves for Thai style Ravioli.
What I like doing is making…[Read more]
Landshare Australia are starting to kick things off with a few community style projects. I’m looking forward to finding out more when things get some more rhythm in my life.
