    Sorry I thought this was MR. I guess only a couple of people are allowed to be rude.

    The link you shared shows that there is 300 years worth of oils left in Venezuela, Kuwait and Iraq combined. So gee I guess I was wrong.

    there's a difference between rude and ignorant.

    "would I say that to Mario's face?"
    No?

    What I wrote I would say and have said to many people's faces. Should have added a smiley face I guess.

    People get "peak oil" wrong. We're not going to run out of oil. It's not how much oil is left; it's how fast you can extract it. The easily extracted stuff is getting tapped out, and we're having to go to more and more difficult methods of extraction - deep offshore, oil sands, fracking, etc. Costs go up and rate of extraction goes down.

    Once the supply falls short of the demand, things get very messy - demand rises above supply, prices spike, economies go into recession, recovery, lather, rinse, repeat.

    We were flirting with a supply crunch for a while; the lingering effects of the last recession and the fracking craze have held it off.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    What's the MRpinion on fanboost? I think it's as gimmicky, and stupider than DRS.

    Its on the same level as the Nascar Chase format. Its has nothing to do with Racing. Its all about TV ratings, and fan interactivity. As a Racer I hate it. As a fan, it sure makes things more interesting (more the Chase than this fanboost)
