Petrol pooping bugs

The world may soon rejoice, for scientists in the United States (hi you!) have created a genetically modified bug which eats shit and poos petrol. Well, maybe not shit la, but feedstock at least.

One problem, for now. "although LS9 can produce its bug fuel in laboratory beakers, it has no idea whether it will be able produce the same results on a nationwide or even global scale."



Story from here. (Lazy to do APA la)

Petrol prices.

This afternoon I got an email from a friend who works at a petroleum company. In it was a .doc that he wrote, and asked me to publish.

I won't be putting the whole thing up (kinda long) but I would be using excerpts.

A few points he made:

Petronas is not the main price-up company. As in any free market, it's by supply and demand. If demand is high and supply is low, price of commodity goes up. Same here with oil and gas.
Well, that's true. Basic law of economics (wahahaha Mr Mohan would be so proud of me). High demand + low supply = high price, and if low demand + high supply = low price. If both supply and demand are high/high or low/low, price would be maintained. Now, about Petronas. Remember this the next time you feel like putting blame of the petrol price increase on Petronas.

Petronas is just another petroleum company. They have no say about the petrol prices in Malaysia, let alone the world. Companies do not control oil prices. Governments do. (
Government = OPEC la). And another thing. If you still want to blame petroleum companies, what about the others in Malaysia? There's Shell, Exxon-Mobil, MurphyOil. Are you that paranoid, thinking that companies with GDPs higher than some countries just wanna steal your money isit?

(On what some bloggers say:)
Take half of PETRONAS profit and give to the rakyat.

The flaw: Although PETRONAS profit is RM70b last year, most of it will go into exploration of new oil sources and in operation costs. Although the price of oil doubled from last year, the operating course tripled! From barges, vessels, drilling equipments...at least triple. If we do not have the money, we canit invest in future resources. We will die a natural death. Oil industries always have to take a long term view and not a knee jerk view. From a country giving a block (piece of land or sea) for an oil company to producing the 1st oil, the simplest easier fields will take 5 yrs. others, 10-15yrs. if we stop now, we could not catch up 10 yrs from now.
Let's see. If Petronas gives half their profit, then we will get RM70 billion devided by 25,274,133 people (source), that will be RM276.96 per Malaysian, per year (assuming Petronas gets that much profit every year la). Wow. That is soooo much money. The average Malaysian family has 4 members, so that a little more than 1K per family. That can buy about 410 litres of petrol, which means full tank for about 8 cars. Wooowwwww. That will last the whole year. (Please sense my sarcasm). Oh wait. Costs for dividing the money, accurately counting the number of Malaysians in the country, sending out the money safely and so on hasn't been taken into account. So what now, about... 6.5 full tanks?

(Again, on what some sources say:)
Stop spending so much money in failed exploration, wasting our money.
Eh hello. Any and all exploration sure ada failure one la weh. If you can come up with a technique that can be even 80% ( I like the number 80) successful in finding an oil pocket worth drilling, tell me please. I will be your manager and sell your services to companies and we will both be multi billionaires.

If you then say we should just stop exploring, please go and stare at the wall and think of the consequences. Then, if 10 minutes later you still don't get it, come back here.

10 minutes d? Ok.

If such exploration stops, where are we going to get our oil from once the current oil pockets become air pockets? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm? (Iyo. Stare at the walls for 10 minutes d still cannot get. Sigh. Go take Thinking Skills classes please. Taylor's College ada. A-levels there. Please, go sign up)



If you're heading to the carpark now, planning to blow up your car to save money, stop. Yes, petrol's more expensive now, but you can cut costs here and there. No, you don't have to resort to cycling everywhere (wah imagine CNY or Hari Raya. Balancing all the goodies on one bike, cycling from one end of the Peninsula to the other... >.<).

Start walking to the news stand that's 500 metres away. Take public transportation. Work closer to home, or stay closer to work. Car pool. Switch to newer cars. Use hybrids. Service your car when it's time. Make your kid pay for his own petrol consumption (this will save you alot of money I tell you. Seriously). Don't let your car idle while you're waiting for your wife to come out of the nail saloon. Don't rev your engine to impress the hot chick walking across the road (you'll probably just irritate her anyway). Plan your trips well to avoid traffic jams and long, winding routes.

There are so many more ways to save money on petrol. Be creative, be logical.

And remember, for every ringgit you save on petrol, you save the environment too.

A waste of my time.

"The status of your application as Intern to *insert name here* is 'Declined'. *insert name here* has added a new comment for your application:

Dear Ee Fei

Greetings from *insert name here*l!

Thanks for your interest in joining our company. However, we have to say sorry that our company is not considering to recruit Year 1 internship students for the moment. Good luck for your future application.

Good day!"


Grrrrr. They could have saved both parties time and effort by stating that in their terms and conditions, like other companies.

In my PSY110 class yesterday, I found out that I belonged to the Eagles group, the natural leaders and high flyers. One of the things that pisses off people like me would be the utter waste of our time.

*roars*





On a totally different note, I'm off to Pangkor Island in a few hours for my cousin's wedding ceremony. :)

More angpao next year. XD

AMG101

Anger management 101.

I think that would be of better use to me than the other similarly coded subject at the moment.

Not going to talk much about it here. I don't want my GPA to get screwed because of it.

Main point: Why lead us on with the whole time consuming process of letting 200+ people decide on something, when you are just going to override the final decision with your own?

Sub point: If the whole project is supposed to be for us to get first hand experience, why limit our capabilities just so that it's slightly easier for you to handle accounts and paperwork? In the first place, why do you want to use that complicated accounting technique?



Now, who wants to try and lecture me now?

I was so "productive" today.

Bah humbug.

I only had class from 10 to 12am today, but had to stay for a 2 hour meeting at 4. >.<

Was so tired that I drooled on my textbook. >.<"

Fell asleep with my finger as a placemark in my textbook pratically right after dinner, and now I can't sleep.

Midterms tomorrow!


Thank heavens for MCQs.
