A couple of post-scripts

Seems like nobody needs or wants Tamiflu anymore - " Thousands of doses of bird-flu medication languish on pharmacy shelves after the public ordered them in a state of pandemic hysteria – but never bothered picking them up."

Doh, wasn't this supposed to be the pandemic that wiped the fucking earth clean? Rush out guys, tamiflu on special at your local pharmacy.

Oil is almost $100 a barrel. Um... I think I mentioned a couple of years ago that by 2007 we'd be looking at $100 a barrel oil. Interestingly mainstream media are still oblivious to the issue, fascinated with pop-gun terrorists in the far north and Heathrow hotel All Black shennanigans. Before long NZ's answer to exburban redneck bogans and their soccer mom wives, "Straight Outa Riverstone Terraces" will be whinging and moaning about the cost of filling up the VW toe rag. The cost of transporting the kids to school 2 blocks away suddenly went postal. How the hell will mum with her 2 hour daily commute to her $35,000 pa job on the Terrace afford the weekly petrol bill?

And to think everyone thought Robert Atack (http://www.oilcrash.com/) was a fruitloop. He told us years ago to expect this... and there is more to come soon - stay tuned folks.

It looks like Robert Atack might be starting to be vindicated with madness about to descend.

It pissed me off when the local rag's opening line in an article about him started 'Prophet of Doom, Robert Atack...'. What a bunch of arseholes - this man has faced much censure for telling the inescapable truth about peak oil and that our way of life is going to change drastically.

Every week on TV Paul Henry rants and raves about the price of oil but is such a fucktard with his head in the sand that he blames the government, the oil companies, the terroists or even Shrek the sheep if he can get away with it.

Wake up Henry - it's simple geology, the oil wells are running dry - wish your stupid comments would!
