I was making observations, not drawing politically motivated conclusions. The only conclusion in my post is that I believe we are being gouged. It's OK with me if you don't agree. Also, I don't really see how your point about people selling their homes for profit negates any of my observations.

I'll second that. Always a pleasure to see fastoldman's posts.



With off-the grid living possible right now, plus a more or less viable electric motorcycle being offered in a previous post ... weaning oneself from oil is very nearly possible right now. One of my local electrical companies supplies green power for a small increased cost compared to regular power, so even folks in apartments could feasibly go off of oil.

The policy isn't causing the deaths ... it is the prejudice against females within Chinese society that is causing the deaths. If they were as happy with a female child as they were with a male child, then the one child rule wouldn't cause a single death.

Venti Starbucks regular coffee: 2.30 CAD

Extra large Tim Hortons coffee: 1.75 CAD



Priced out today on my daily coffee run for the office. The venti actually holds more coffee than the XL Tim Hortons, too.

I have lived off the grid with a solar electric system that I designed and installed myself. To produce roughly 6 kw a day the system parts cost 20k usd. The battery bank, with great amount of care, lasted 7 years, at a cost of 4800 dollars. I really enjoyed using my system but solar electricity is nowhere near as cheap as grid power. The only thing that made my system an economically sound investment was the fact that my home was 10 miles away from the closest access to grid power. The cost of running the grid to my home would have been over a million of today's dollars!
