In the 90s, I was an avid viewer of Fox News and a proud conservative. I started seeing how they were increasingly biased so I stopped watching. Similarly, as I grew older and Republican politicians increasingly starting saying and doing pretty stupid things, I moved more moderate and independent.
Times change, people change - what was isn't anymore. Stop trying to claim the high-ground because of what your party did years ago.
I'll admit that I have very little use for oil as it's produced by this machine, but it's valuable to someone who can convert it into something that the average consumer uses (i.e. gasoline). If every household was converting their shopping bags and yogurt containers into oil, what would the overall impact be on oil production? I suppose this is still much more expensive to produce than extraction of oil from bitumen, but it feels like that the combined costs of extraction, processing, transportation, and the immeasurable environmental impact of shipment failures would weigh out the electricity costs to turn waste materials into oil (if that sounds like an uneducated guess, that's because it is). I'd be interested in learning more, however.

College was typical for a computer geek. Started chatting online in the spring of 1987 using BITNET's Relay network. Started on the university IBM mainframe, but quickly moved to the UNIX systems. Became the system administrator for the Computer Science and Math departments. In 1991, at the height of the recession, I was very lucky to get a job in Massachusetts.
I worked into my chosen career of software configuration management and release engineering.
In 2001, I developed migraines - actually, it was one long migraine that lasted four years. I was not able to work or even read a page in a book. But I was chatting on IRC and Yahoo and my beautiful wife found me on Yahoo. The catch? She lived in Islamic Republic of Iran. After eleven months of chatting at least 4 hours each day, we both traveled to Bangkok, Thailand and married within a week. With my migraines and no lawyer to help, I managed the immigration process and it took 51 weeks for me to bring her to live with me. It was an especially tense wait for her.
When she arrived, we had to deal with whole new challenges. Neither of us could drive or work in the beginning. She is a type I diabetic and had to adjust to the new climate and food - crazy time.
After four years, with a new set of medication and diet, my migraines were finally starting to come under control. I started working again. Shortly after that, my wife became pregnant - we found out with twins.
Now I work from home, with our very active five year old identical twin sons while my wife goes back to college for a brand new career.
