  • Can You Profit From Prisons? [View article]
    The defendant must pay for his own defense, the prosecution has the basically limitless resources of the state behind them. This makes no sense as we have innocent until proven guilty, but then basically an arrest puts one in an unfair proceeding. This whole thing is done because lawyers know that folks will pay whatever it takes to stay out of jail. So corruption starts here.

    We also have plenty of guilty folks never getting caught let alone going free. THis is because too many are arrested on he said she said types of cases, victimless crimes and so forth. Obviously we have too many people getting caught up in the system.

    And then we have legal guns which gives us 100,000 people shot each year. Outlawing guns would reduce the number of cases by 100,000 each year.

    And I repeat my I-devices have quit backing up because of this storage issue.

    I see nothing good about stingy storage. It is just a headache for me. I guess I should just back everything up to Google but it is still a headache.

  • Natural Gas: A Rebound To 4/MMBtu And Higher Is Not Out Of The Question [View article]
    Craig,

    IF shale Natural gas is profitable at $2.5 or even $4 for that matter, explain why shale oil is a loser at $40 and many companies even have trouble $100.

    These NG companies are all going way into debt and losing money. The supposed best company, Cabot, just took a 400 million plus write down and reported a ton of losses last quarter. I expect that these companies will be forced to show some huge losses going forward as now they can no longer hide their losses by claiming future higher production.

    Too many he said she said high profile trials reaching convictions for me to believe this. I am pretty certain that there are a whole lot of innocent people in jail.

    Again, there are too many high profile cases where there is doubt that any crime was committed at all.

    THis is ignorant commentary. Shale oil and NG is expensive. These claims of vast resources of inexpensive shale NG are pure nonsense. We have had this technology for decades. The only reason that it was not used earlier is because it is more expensive than conventional oil and NG.

    Now that we have used up the easy and less expensive sources we need to drill for much more expensive shale oil and natural gas. It is nonsense to claim that these poorer shale reserves are somehow less expensive than conventional NG and oil.

    What if I want to show someone the photos? For example. THere are all kinds of advantages to having data in the cloud whether the masters are on a hard drive or not.

    And I don't see anything intelligent about Apple being stingy with storage.

    I have the m4p file running on my i-devices by using google drive and google play.

    I used itunes to get the file, but I did this at the library.

    I can get the file running on my Chromebook by just opening the file.

    Apparently using an I-device is less intuitive in this regard than a Chromebook. This implies to me anyway that there must be quite a few other things less intuitive on the I-device than the Chromebook. And I find the lack of a file system makes everything less intuitive, although I will agree that there are also benefits to lacking a file system.

    And the app store doesn't list an on video app.

  • Lower For Longer: A New Normal For U.S. Natural Gas Prices [View article]
    All these NG companies in the Marcellus are losing money big time. Cabot is supposedly the best of these guys and they just wrote down 400 plus million dollars and took a big loss on the quarter.

    IT is complete nonsense to claim that NG can cost $2.50 to produce. IF this be true, how come oil is not profitable at $25 since the historic ratio is 10-1. Shale is expensive. Shale NG is much more expensive than conventional NG which is also not profitable at $2.50

    But somehow folks want to believe that shale is inexpensive because of some tech thing or something. What is happening is money is being drilled into the ground and the money ain't coming back. These companies are buried in debt.

    THe price of coal drops like a rock, and coal companies reduce production and their shares drop drastically. The price of NG drops and these companies increase production and investors continue to throw money down the rat hole.

    "How do I store files on my I-device? How do I play M4p files?"
    Already answered elsewhere in this forum. Next? >>> >>>

    Not answered. Just stating something does not make it true.

    Vulpine,

    I know I can store the files somewhere else and then delete them. Quit being stupid.

    There are downsides with that solution, and Apple is apparently really stingy with storage.

    The Mac is losing ground rapidly to Chromebooks in schools.
