Entry: "Friday!!"

Happy Friday!!! How cool is that??
Just idly letting my brain waves settle on just about anything that crosses my mind...When will the automakers wake the frink up and design either more fuel efficient cars or cars that are powered by "alternative" technologies??? How long do we (the American public) have to be slaves to a foreign oil supply? I'm not saying we should pull all the plugs and go drill-happy up in Alaska full speed ahead, but certainly there has got to be a better way, no? Why can't our scientist's and resident brainiacs develop reliable and hopefully cheaper sources of fuel for us? Plus, at what point will everyone realize that there will soon be way too many cars on the road?
The prevailing attitude for everyone involved seems to be:

the Automakers: "We'll just keep cranking cars out by the tens of millions per year until there are more cars in the world than people, they'll buy 'em."

the Autobuyer: "I want another new car, to hell with the fact that gas is soon to be $3-4 a gallon and it takes me 2 hours to drive anywhere because there are approximately 23 million other cars competing for the same tiny stretch of roadway that my car occupies."

the Motorist buying gas: "%@#*&%"!!!!

the Fat Cat Executives at the big oil companies: "How cool is this guys?"

I just don't understand how we can put frinking robots on the surface of Mars, we can decipher the genetic code that makes us human, we can invent new drugs with bizarre names to "cure" conditions that didn't even exist a few years ago...but we still are dependent on foreign oil like we have been since we started using the stuff, making us forever hostage to the whims of a foreign guvmint...or in this case, the whole region where we get our oil from...can't someone invent a "fuel pill" that you pop into your "gas tank" and it lasts for like a couple of weeks and costs maybe $10-15 bucks a pop? I can deal with that...yeah, I can deal with that nicely, yes?...
DANG TIME FLIES WHEN YOUR VENTING...time to roll with the flow and head to work, y'all be good!

I hear you, man.
Gas prices are KILLING my family this year. Living in Maine (otherwise known as Siberia) and having to drive not 'blocks' but shitloads of miles to get anywhere, is taking it's toll on my wallet. Not to mention that my car is a ten year old POS that only gets about 12 miles per gallon. Yesterday I went to the grocery store and back and POOF!~there went a quarter of a tank of gas. I could have cried.
I am completely convinced that the car manufacturers of the world and the Gas/Oil kingpins are scratching each other's backs but no one is scratchin' ours, man!
I think it's time for the 10 year old scientist in mah fam (G) to finally create that fuel concoxion that runs off carrott juice. He's bound and determined to find a cheaper method of fuel. Heh.
Enjoy the weekend!
