    It is kind of weird/fascinating/embarrassing to see US getting owned by their old arch enemy this way, majority of population being totally clueless that they are getting shat in their cereals on daily basis. Oh well, some just have a glutton for punishment.


    The floggings will continue until morale improves.

    Smart.

    UNLESS people start panic buying then the whole system of delivery and storage will go to shit

    Yup. The sad truth about it is that they all too often bring it on themselves by being dumbasses about security whilst being super interconnected and wide open to the world.

    heard on the radio that airlines are having to stop before flying into ATL to fill up with gas. They are flying planes loaded with fuel into the SE as well. That's nutz. And crazy expensive.

    Putin be laughing. Next he will take down the electric grid somewhere. Then, yep, he will take away that most precious of precious...the internet.

    Iíve read that they can actually pump gas down the pipeline with no issue but they canít invoice for it because that is the system that got hacked. Not sure I trust the sources, anyone seen any reporting to that effect?

    Maybe we should let Snowden back in to fix this shit. Or maybe he's the one doing it to us for his revenge.

    Drive into the office this morning was interesting. Half the traffic of yesterday, easy. Every gas station I passed had yellow "out of service" bags over the pump handles.

    Just walked down the hall from my partner's office whose brother is the superintendent of a very large school system in the metro and they're talking about cancelling school/going remote tomorrow and Friday because no one has gas.

    In Nigeria they just cut holes in the pipelines when they need fuel. It is a bit messy and dangerous and causes some groundwater contamination, but these are desperate times.

    A pipeline explosion killed up to 200 people on the outskirts of Lagos yesterday, leaving charred corpses on a sandy beach where locals tapping the pipe to steal fuel ignited the blast.

    The Red Cross said the pipeline blew up in the early hours of the morning while thieves were siphoning fuel into jerry cans for sale on the black market. The explosion burned everything within a 20 metre radius. Only calcinated skulls and bones were left of five people who were closest to the pipeline, which bore marks of drilling in several places.

    About 100 blackened corpses were strewn on the water's edge. Some bodies, charred and bloated, floated in the creek, which is about a mile from Lagos city centre. "You can see the corpses. Some are burnt to ash. Others are remnants. We estimate 150 to 200 people died," the Lagos state police commissioner, Emmanuel Adebayo, said at the scene.

    I feel like there's a moral to the story in there somewhere.

    speaking of tapping pipelines - we used to ride around Nantucket in my buddys quadratrac wagoneer ( 4-5 MPG downhill ) doin the rounds. never more than a quarter tank in that thing - I soon came to realize why - those days the one station had these blond amazons in tight shorts pumping fuel. we'd be there a few times a day taking the pulse of the island - finding the weed monitoring the parties - gave new meaning to the word smoking at the pump.... Simpler times..

    My wife heard about this on the news this morning and told me to go make sure our vehicles are full this afternoon.
