    It is said that us folks of a

It is said that us folks of a modern "western" persuasion live like Kings of old.  Something to the equivalent of having 300 (?) slaves working for each one of us.  When I get into conversations with people- usually starting with the "price" of gasoline- I suggest to them the following thought exercise (not original thinking by myself….): If you want to see how much energy is in a gallon of gas, put a gallon in your car, drive it 'till it goes dry, then push it back to your starting point.  You'll need some BTUs for you and your friends to make it back home- or a $2 bus ticket…..Aloha, Happy New Year!  Steve.
