Looks like a good one. Is it just me or does this seem like the age of the documentary? There are so many of them that soon we'll have a section for them in BlockBuster! I wonder what the effecacy of a documentary is?

Another great line:
“oil is a magnet for war…”


Regarding the question about "the effecacy of a documentary" -- the menu changes at McDonalds seem to suggest there is some efficacy.

...but how many people have you seen eat the new things on the menu at McDonalds? is this a superficial external change that eases our consciences but not our arteries?

I try to avoid Rotten Ronnies at all costs. However, I have little kids and they are inundated with that frickin' clown's ads. I never feel full after eating there, just different!

What did people think of the "vibe of the thing?"

(10 points to any non-Australians that know the source of that movie quote/sound-byte.)

Many geologists are looking at last year's Saudi Arabia reports and saying we've peaked already — if so, how bad do you think it will get?
