The Daily Thread: Thursday

Hey everyone. I have three days remaining in my Gannett-mandated furlough.

See Sunday's entry for more details.

Please feel free to discuss issues as usual in the comment section. I hate this it has come to this, but it has. I blame greedy consumers. If we'd all narrow the chasm between what we want to afford and we actually can afford, our world would be happier

Fight the power!

I'm unhappy. This article says inflation is at its highest level in six months because:

"The acceleration was led by a 3.7 percent surge in energy prices with gasoline prices jumping by 15 percent, the biggest gain in 14 months."

I monitor wholesale gas (petrol) prices very carefully. That price has dropped from 1.28/gal to 1.07/gal during the past 10 days. So ... WTH?

FSJ: On the CNBC.com homepage, there is a graph on the top left-hand side. Click on its "oil" tab and look at the "GAS" line.

It's currently 1.0733.

I check this several times per day. I find it fascinating.

Thanks CT.

Sorry about the previous deletion..

I'm paying 1.91 at the pump.

I have seen retailers claim that they receive a "1 cent per gallon profit."

If that's true, who gets the other .83/gal? Is that the freight company? Those tankers hold approximately 7,000 gallons each. So you're telling me the freight company is paid $5,200 to transport that petrol from the refinery to the pump?

I WANT THAT BUSINESS.

Cost: $750. Maybe.

9:41 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Maybe they meant that one percent of each gallon gives them no profit?

9:42 AM  
Blogger Criminal Type said...

FSJ ... you can look at the graphs and seen when wholesalers get their emails notifying them to raise or lower prices. It's hilarious. Just like today with oil -- price is up 3% for truly nebulous reasons.

They got the email last night.

CT, I heard the reason for the increase in gas prices at the pump is because of increased production costs. They will use any excuse to rape the consumer.

The U has supposedly decided to not renew his LOI. In other news gasoline is a commodity and commodities are a very shady market indeed. The smallest of expectations can trigger significant swings either way. Also the government takes a nice chuck of change out of the pump price, there's your difference.

11:15 AM

Also us ATL folks won't forget the fiasco that occurred this passed summer when they shut down the refineries, we got hosed over because of EPA laws and were basically out of gas for weeks. Also we were paying almost $5/gallon. Talk about shady.

My Auburn Family ...

It is tempting to view these days as the winter of our discontent.

Yes, we are beset by many challenges. The stock and housing markets are suffering. There has been systemic failure within our financial sectors. More and more of our friends, neighbors and family are struggling to do more with less. Our primary means of communications has been temporarily shuttered. Our enemy is howling at the door.

But to surrender to woe is not our history. And I tell you today, is NOT our destiny!

That is why I ask you to join me in a new, fresh vision of the world. My Auburn Family, it is the eve of spring practice where Chiz, Gus, Troop, Lupe, Roof and our fearless leaders will take our young men and school them again in the basics of blocking, tackling and hustling.

I ask you to join me in an era of loving one another, as the Apostle Paul taught us to give preference to one another. Let us reach out to help those less fortunate -- particularly those with sons who have 40-yard dash times that are in the 4.3 range or who are 6-foot-6 and weigh 300 pounds.

I ask you to join me in a crusade to provide affordable (free) housing and transportation to the families of these young men who so desperately need our help.

Because with their help, the leadership of our generals, and the full faith and support of all who love Auburn in believe it, we will forearm shiver our enemy in the throat. And we will place the head of our enemy on a stick to serve as a beacon that we have the greatest Family on the face of the earth.

God bless America. God bless Auburn, and God bless you.

In 2004, TurboProp and I went to the game. I sent him to our seats, and went to the concession stand to fetch food. He misread the sign and went to the wrong section. Rectalclown Bama Fan made fun of 12 year old for "being an Aub who didn't know how to read."

He came back to me in line red faced and told me what happened, but grabbed my arm and held on for life when I was headed back into the section to either a: cuss the guy out b: sling his rectalclown self off the upper deck, or c: die trying.

Worst/Best crappy fan experience.

Sept. 17, 1994
LSU at Auburn

Several friends and I were sitting in the end zone with the biggest, loudest, drunkest LSU fan. He was nasty (as in gross) and obnoxious. We were winning in the 4th and were all excited. So this guy says over and over and over, "it ain't over till the fat lady sings" and in the next couple of plays they kicked a FG to go ahead.

BUT THEN! With 2 minutes or so Brian Robinson got the INT and ran back 41 yards (in our direction) for the winning touchdown.

I turned around and started singing to the LSU dude. It was a good moment.

4:12 PM

Well, at least someone sang. The fat lady was probably an LSU fan.

Ah, Luv, we are still in the Dark Ages and don't have an HD TV.

We have Direct TV so I had to hunt for FSS but I found it.

1. Creating an opening so big FSJ was able to push an elephant through it.
2. Letting said statement said unanswered for 5 minutes.
3. Having a lame response when he did answer.

No FSS here. I've got a listing for the Sunday game at UGA though.

Luv, Charter has a unique outlook on running a business. They try to make you NOT buy their "service." That is the only logical conclusion I can come to. Hopefully, their bankruptcy will result in another cable company purchasing their assets and we will all be delivered from Charter Hell.

Our women are up against Vandy in about 15 minutes. Tune into Fox Sports if you've got it.

They're playing for #1 in the SEC. (We're 10-1, Vandy 9-2)

Also Mike Leach agreed to the deal, GOOD, stay away from Gus.

A few minutes to tip off ...

A few facts ...

Historically, Auburn has struggled in Nashville, winning only 5 in 14 trips to Music City, USA.

The last trip was particularly painful, a 35-point loss to the Commode-A-Dores.

Let's turn it around tonight!

What has happened to the Lady Vols this year? I realize that Candace Parker has been gone for 2 years and this team is nearly all freshmen but I thought Pat Summit could coach high school players to win.

Many good shooting teams struggle at Vandy ... AU 67-1 when scoring 70 under Fortner.

Under 16 TV timeout 8-4, Vandy.

AU not shooting well. Looking tight.

Awesome!!! Yahoo's not even providing updates on this one. No Sports South up here. I'm stuck with Hurricanes hockey. Too many Yankees have infiltrated.

An offensive rebound (for the Tigers) would be wonderful.

AU can't hit from long range ... defense spotty ...

The HABOTN is now a nice comedy show and enjoyable, but why are folks yawning at conversation that takes away from the cute and quippy. Is this only a comedy show?

The real soap opera brought into the HABOTN is when "info" regarding human beings is gathered from Rivals, etc. and shared for pleasure/redicule.

So I guess it's OK to gossip about recruits/players/coaches, but don't dare point out predictably silly fan tendacies in the form of a question?........Nah, that's not fair.

Here's a question....Which folks only know football to the extent they can research on ESPN and Rivals?

One possible answer....many of the folks that were angered by that question.

Another possible answer...folks that only gossip about football and discourage criticism of fans.

Jet...It can't be Blog Sweeps Week, we're in the off season.
