Re: Vanishing Oil Reserves

Since no experts are going to reply, I'll take a swipe. So the question is why are the P U Ds, 2Ps, and 3Ps suddenly considered as reserves?

The simplest answer goes to how many dry holes are being drilled. If you go back to the 1960s, over [more]

Re: Ethyl's slide into the oily vortex of doom

Why not just buy an ETF like the XOP, XLE, or how about something like the USO?

If you look at the monthly results of the above ETFs, the USO is the clear winner being up 2.91%, the XLE is down 2.33%, and the XOP is down 7.4%. [more]

Re: Shadowrun Dragonfall impressions?

Getting into this one now. Fun game and great story. A lot of reading, but very good writing. I'm not a big fan of long dialogues, but for the most part it worth while. Pretty interesting choices to be made in Shadowrun:Dragonfall. I repeatedly have [more]

Re: OT: The A-10 keeps flying

Of course, the AF's bias is for planes that fly fast and high, not something that helps the ground pounders. Back in the 30s, when the Air Corps was part of the Army, the bias was for planes that provided close support for ground troops, so we had [more]

Re: Ethyl's slide into the oily vortex of doom

Usually I don’t pay attention to dividend dates, but with the high yields that are in the energy sector it might be worthwhile. Two of my six stocks pay a hefty dividend. The first is Noble Corp(NE) which is paying $.375 every quarter which is now [more]

Re: Bethesda Game Studios

To be fair, there's also the Fallout: New Vegas from when Bethesda didn't own the franchise. It was garbage (read: glorified DLC), but it was there.

Bethesda Game Studios

They really need to get their act together. Fallout 3 released in 2008 and Skyrim released in 2011. Fallout 4 could possibly maybe be an outside chance of 2016 release. Close to 8 years between FO3 and FO4. So maybe we should look for TES6 in around [more]

Re: Witcher 3: Game of the Year?

I never gambled in any of the casinos in FONV, but I did shoot several of them up.

Does that count for something?


That's just a given.

I know, everyone that ever wanted to played the game probably already has it, but just in case you don't have it and want it; this is your chance to give it a whirl for nothing.

Thanks for the links. Its hard to find good granular data like this. It would be nice to know who compiled it or a source, although I don't have any reason to refute it.

Re: Oil, one more time

So it shouldn't take a year to see production start to decline, should it? Given the fact that oil prices have been sub-$60 since mid-December, I am surprised we haven't seen any production decreases already. Any thoughts?
