k so this is what i heard,
"The people who run BP are fucking idiots. They're setting all the oil on fire in the middle of the ocean, but won't let the environmentalists take out all the animals. So they're setting turtles ON FIRE. And then they're spreading toxic chemicals into the ocean to break up the slick, but they will KILL anything that touches it"


re read this part

"And then they're spreading toxic chemicals into the ocean to break up the slick, but they will KILL anything that touches it"

doesnt this sound familiar?

Q: How did the Rusties' society end? Will you ever write about that?

A: Each book in the Uglies series will have more of that story. But the short version is that the Rusties (who are us, basically) were too dependent on oil. One day, a bacteria was created that changed the nature of oil and made it wildly unstable. As this "oil-bug" spread, everyone's car exploded, as did the oil fields we were all fighting over. Food didn't get delivered to cities, planes stopped flying, and transportation in general broke down. Relatively few of us survived.

idk what do you think? i find it waaaaay to similar tho


dang yes

Prediction: Sooner or later, somehow, somewhere, humanity is going to kill itself.
All we can do is hold on and enjoy the ride.

I'm with James-Chan on the language.  When it comes to the forum: Use it, don't abuse it. But I agree with you that they are idiots.
