This thread shall be a merit-based thread. It will be culled occasionally, and all stupid posts will be removed. And with that, I sincerely hope that my need for quality entertainment will be appeased.

I think rising gas prices blow, because they've cranked up the bus prices as well.

Gas prices in the Americas are rising, yes, but they're still well below global price levels. Look at Europe. In some places, gasoline costs approximately $7.00 USD per gallon.

We only have cheap gasoline because we've artificially cheapened it via governmental dealing and such, and this cheapening is now coming to the point where it can no longer exist. Thus prices are rising to the actual cost level.

Most of the high price of gas (or petrol. In England.) in Europe is from the taxes placed on it.

Hmm...
An infinately appealing idea, but the improbability of it's success is just as astonishing.

It's sort of ludicrous that water costs more than gas.

I don't know whether that is making a statement about our water usage, or our gas usage...

How about the Pope's urine?
I bet that'd fetch a high price.

Petrol costs about a £1 a litre here now. So that's what? 3.8 litre to a Gallon? Almost £4 a Gallon. That's what? Closing on $8 US? about $11 Canadian?

You've got it easy!

Pope Piss vs. Computer Ink?

I suppose it depends on the market.
I mean, if you could sell the Pope's Piss, you could potentially sell the Panic! At the Urinal.

:/

As mentioned in reference to the bottled water:
It's all marketing.

My problem is that I've found that Popes Piss doesn't give the me vibrant colors I'm looking for when printing photos at home. Maybe it's just the consumer-grade Popes Piss though. I'll hafta find out what the Copy & Print Center at work uses.... maybe an industrial grade stuff.

I hate buying toothpaste. My 9th grade economics project was breaking down the ingredients of various things.

I broke down the ingredients of toothpaste.

You're practically paying 3 bucks a tube for water and antifreeze ingredients.

Mouth Soap?

Perhaps that's where the Pope should be marketing his urine!
I mean, after all: How would Listerine compete with the Religious Mouthwash community?

This thread seems kind of off base, as even though its a discussion, its a far cry from any sort of debate. If we want a true exchange of ideas, we need to make a topic where sane people can exchange their views, all thw while being kept from a massive catastrafuck that would occour if people ran free and started yelling

This is a forum, we could stand for a reasonable debate, but we dont want it to turn into springer.

Debate?
I saw no mention of debate in the initial post. :/

Kathleen requested an intelligent exchange of ideas, and given that we're dicussing world economics and alternative marketing for potential high-consumer products:
I'd say this is pretty damned intelligent.

Then again:
I did create a tagline for Christerine...

Hmm, a show of intelligence...

How's about this...
Take 1 crucible.
Add some hydrogen peroxide to some glycerine, then add fire.
After adding fire, dump a heaped spatula of potassium permanganate (VII) into it, and admire the purple explosions.

Just make sure you don't spill any of it on anything irreplaceable. The above mixture will stain something to the point of replacement. There are 3 fume cupboards at my old 6th form that have the bottoms of them permanently stained purple from my doing the above reaction at open days. Crowd pleaser, but the cleaners will hate you for it.

Ok, so it's not really a great show of something intelligent to do, but it's a show that something of my A-level Chemistry actually stuck...

Why is it that regular soap tastes so nasty, but toothpaste tastes good? I'd say its the flavorings in the toothpaste, but it's more accurately the chemicals in regular soap. Lye isn't supposed to taste good, and most alkaline solutions are still pretty poisonous. I suggest that it isnt mouth soap as much as it is mouth deodorant.

As for turning the thread into Springer, VH1 or MTV (which one i don't remember) has a show on about "The Springer Hustle". For the most part, it proves that the show is rigged to have the most violent reactions possible. Jerry Springer is actually a good guy, I think, but the people who run the show want trash TV. So, we can't turn this into an episode of Springer, because we are saying what we want, uncoersed by anyone with us at the computer.

Now that the fifteen feet of freakin' snow is melting, I may walk more instead of motoring about. That'll show the price of gas! Or something.

On an unrelated note, does anyone else pay ~85.00USD for a 1.0MB/384k connection to the Intertubes?
