Oil running out in 2025?

After getting the Y2K (remember that?) all wrong, (thank goodness), I’m
hesitant to panic too much about this, but I just watched an article on
CNN, where they interviewed one expert who thought that we’d be
substantially out of oil by 2025. That doesn’t seem like all that long
from now. I’ll be 65. Will I spend my retirement years fighting through
some Mad Max landscape?

EUGENE, Ore. – A woman is accused of pouring boiling oil on her

boyfriend’s face in an argument over a Bible verse.

Angela S. Morris, 19, was charged with domestic violence assault and

jailed on $250,000 bail. Her 31-year-old boyfriend, whose name was not

released, was hospitalized with severe burns on his face, neck and chest.

The two were reading the Bible at the boyfriend’s apartment May 13 when

Morris went to the kitchen to prepare french fries, police said.

Morris told police that they continued to argue and that her boyfriend

grabbed her from behind. Police said he then went to his bedroom to lie

down. Morris followed and threw the oil on him, police said.
