Intentinally or unintentionally; that subconcious, you just never know. As for frustration, I don't get it because I am a patient man. Gahhhhhhhh....."Ode to a (Ted) LARK"     --  by  DaBurglar Allen Poe At the end I heard,Like a Plummeting Turd,A statement so AbsurdIt was Ted's "Last word".They are Never CheeryBut always Dreary;Of Substance BereftYou'd think at this point"There cannot be any LEFT!"But alas Like a BirdDepositing one last TurdIt's the epitome of ABSURDIt's Ted Getting in ....THE LAST WORD.<applause applause>  Thank you, Thank you.......thank you....no, no no,  THANK  YOU!<bows>   <more applause>[/QUOTE]
    I can just picture you now: in a dimly lit cafe, you're wearing a beret and dark sunglasses, a set of bongos hangs from around your neck as you are leaning against a stool. It's open mike night for wanna be poets so you give it a shot.   Crazy man, crazy, I'm hip... You get finished with your selection and the only thing making more noise than you nervously scratching your arm are the crickets chirping.....chirp chirp, chrip chirp, chirp, chirp.....Way to go daddy-o...

DB , I am not an expert on fracking, but I am a PE and have 2 engineering degrees, from State schools alas, not Ivy League schools, but have had an opportunity to take some continuing credit courses on fracking. Bottom line from what I can tell, it is safe.

  Fracking has a minimal impact on the environment, the U.S. could probably be the biggest importer of HEAVY CRUDE from Venezuela, heavy crude is cheaper to purchase because it is costlier to refine, and heavy crude makes a larger carbon footprint in the earth's ozone than light sweet. In addition, Venezuela was shopping for a buyer for its two STATE owned refineries in the United States, one being located just a few miles away from me. They recently decided to take these refineries off the market. So Venezuela not only owns the over 500 billion barrel reserves but they also refine it in refineries located in the United States that they own.

  DaBurglar fracking, or horizontal drilling, are not new technologies. And for you to make a comment like: "honestly this place can be real boring for long stretches, thanks to people like you" is laughable. That's like the 92 year old woman calling the 95 year old woman, old.    I like how you tied: "boring for long stretches" in with fracking. GET IT???
