Where do you gather that from my post??? You may have hoped that I said that, but I did not, nor did I infer that

Why would I hope that you said that. I have no personal stake in this, its a debate nothing more.

Regardless, it seemed to me that you were implying that the average broker is smarter than the average customer. If thats incorrect, then I am sorry.

Please do enlighten me, Fiz.

when the hydrocarbon economy finally collapses, your job will almost certainly become obsolete. Cities have mass transportation infrastructure available, so that a strong federal entity will be able to ship in food and supplies, but not to the suburbs because they're too spread out and there's no efficient way to do it. The vast majority of suburbs in the United States have no public transportation or rail lines, and without gas for the denizens to power their cars to, they will be stranded.

you say you're closer to farms being in the suburbs. Well, fertilizer is a byproduct of the hydrocarbon industry, and the soil in most of the country has been completely destroyed. Without fertilizer, much of the giant farms will be forced to lie fallow for years, and that's if they can get legumial plants to them, which isn't a given.

furthermore, what in the world could you do on a farm? do you know how to farm? do you know when to harvest something? do you know how the planting cycles work? do you know how to plow a field? do you know how deep to plant what seeds? there's not going to be any power, you won't be able to look this stuff up.

but yes once the hydrocarbon economy collapses, which could happen for any number of reasons, your life in the suburbs will collapse almost immediately.

The suburb I'm in actually has the light rail coming to it. :seeya:

I had no idea that cow manure and organic waste are a byproduct of the hydrocarbon industry.

furthermore, what in the world could you do on a farm?

Farm it.

do you know how to farm?

Yes. I have the lucky background of having a 100 acre family farm that I am most experienced in working

do you know when to harvest something?

Yes.

do you know how the planting cycles work?

Yes.

do you know how to plow a field?

Yes.

do you know how deep to plant what seeds?

Yes. Any other questions?

there's not going to be any power, you won't be able to look this stuff up.

I don't need to.

but yes once the hydrocarbon economy collapses, which could happen for any number of reasons, your life in the suburbs will collapse almost immediately.

Thanks for your input. You obviously know nothing about me or my background.

KTHXBYE

:seeya:

And so comes to an end another good thread that had to get locked up after logic and blue collarness trumped Professor fed thinking.

I have said it for years. One day we are going to outsmart ourselves.

Simple life is still a good one.

I'm sorry that I shot down your every accusation, Fiz. I'll welcome you to my farmhouse and will share my food with you. I'll even let you help me work the farm in exchange for some of the harvest... assuming you have any idea of how to work a farm, of course. I don't need any green horns hoeing my field. You'd probably hoe away a sprout thinking it's a weed

i mean i thought it was pretty clear that i was using you to mean the population as a whole, especially when i started referring to things like "the vast majority of suburbs."

i guess it's my fault for forgetting that subtlety is completely lost with you.

Sounds like you know your way around a hoe.

Good hoes are hard to find, no?

Indeed it was completely lost on me when you used so many "Do YOU" questions.

Go ahead, backtrack, boh
