Thanks to all of you who worked on it.

I genuinely hope that it will be a success.
It should allow AH return back to the happy/silly place it once was.
I often wondered if anyone even remembered what AH used to be before it became so politicised. Its current carnation is a hollow shell of its former self; I would be optimistic that the creation of this forum will help to alleviate that somewhat.

I would like to personally claim responsibility for the ingenious suggestion to add this forum as an AH subforum, given that this only happened after I invisibly replied to Mark's thread in announcements. Ye should all reward me with virtual pints.

AH died with Flutt left. To this day I will never forget his phrasing of "A butcher's pocketful of gas erupted from my chicken coop" to describe farting in a taxi with the windows closed, back in '08 or '09

Markets were bracing for an oversupply worldwide anyway last week, and the entire Gulf is now only producing 13% world consumption so even if it all kicked off, it wouldn't be anything likes the choke on supply of the 1970's.

Great forum to circumvent an After Hours ban.

If theres any increase in cost to the barrell, it'll only increase at the pumps when oil bought at that price is refined and distributed. The current price for the consumer generally isnt based in the current price for the supplier.

Stop worrying about price of oil.
It won't matter in 11 years time as Leo the Great will have us all weened off the stuff.

Of course the olive oil lubricated wooden wind generators will need replacing every few years, but that shouldn't cause too much of an issue.

That logic works in one direction only.

Where am I and how did I get here?

You don't stop in for a few days, and everything changes while you're gone.
