Shut Up, Already!

This was the first post I ever wrote that got a huge number of  pageviews.  It appeared in the Geese before I ever even thought of adding my RSOTR page. If you like cars but don't like people who don't know what they're talking about, blowing their mouths off, spewing bullshit, you'll love this.



These People are Full of Crap and They Must be Silenced


Authors note:  I ran across a great article while researching for a previous post.  It reinforces something I’ve (and I’m sure a lot of you) have been saying for decades.  It has all the math we need to back us up, and is explained in an easy to understand manner.

            Way, way back during our first energy crisis in 1973, I heard someone spout off a comment about how the energy crisis was phony.  He said that was just a conspiracy by the oil companies to jack up oil prices.  He then added that “some guy” had invented a carburetor that would allow an automobile to get over 100 miles per gallon, but the oil companies had bought all the rights to its design and manufacture, and were purposely not ever going to release any of the information concerning it because it was not in their best interests to have cars that got good gas mileage.
            Even though I was in sixth grade at the time, I suspected he was full of crap.  Even at that age, I had heard enough about the Arabs that I found it hard to believe that they would jointly conspire with American oil companies in order to increase their profits.  What did OPEC care about the profits of American companies?  They just wanted to get as high a price as possible for their crude and maybe at the same time, try to influence the U.S. position on Israel.  I also understood that there was no way the cars back then could ever get anything near 100 mpg, no matter what type of magic carburetor you were to put on them.
             Even if “some guy” had invented some type of super mileage carburetor, there is no way that information about its design would not have leaked out to the public.  The guy who invented this phantom carburetor, or one of his buddies who knew what he was working on, would have certainly reneged on whatever “agreement” he had with the oil companies, started production, and fought it out in the courts later.
            It’s now forty years later and still no magic carburetor.  By now, one would think that any agreement with oil companies would have expired, some oil company employee would have stole the information and gone into the carburetor manufacturing business, or at least someone would have independently stumbled over a similar magic carburetor design.
            So why haven’t we seen this magic carburetor?  The reason, (to almost no one’s surprise) is that there never was such a thing and 95 percent of us knew it all along.  When one takes into account the number of btu’s in a gallon of gas and all of the real world conditions like wind resistance and mechanical efficiency, there is no way the story could have ever been true.
            What is surprising, is that to this day, whenever the subject of gas prices or fuel efficiency comes up, some buffoon comes up with the “some guy and the magic carburetor” story.  We all always knew that it was bullshit.  So here’s all the ammo you’ll need to shut down the next person that brings it up in your presence.

  1. There is something better though but won't get out to the general public....They do not want to have free energy out there it provides to much independence...We are easier to control if we have to depend on someone else for our energy...

    1. Here's the deal. If it can't make a set of dual pipes with glass packs sing, I don't want it. I would rather carefully plan and combine my trips driving something I enjoy, than tool around like some dweeb in a Prius.

  2. For pleasure I would agree but I do a lot of driving and wouldn't mind keeping more of my money in my pocket rather than spending it on fuel...Also wouldn't mind being able to heat my house and keep the lights on for less money also;-)

    1. We have all the energy reserves you could ever want or need to do that. The only thing standing in the way is the clown in the White House and his supporters.

    1. The only way we can pay off all that debt is with worthless dollars. Of course then, who in their right mind would buy bonds? Don't worry, they got that covered. Soon you will not be able to invest in any tax deferred type of retirement plan, unless you purchase an ever increasing percentage of government bonds. It's all good, don't you see?
