sorry. link here: http://www.salon.com/tech/htww/2008/05/06/peak_oil_and_ufos/

Hmm... aliens and peak oil? That logic would apply if the civilization didn't hit the Singularity/Spike. You see if we can hold out long enough for the mathematical threshold that will allow all problems to be solved, concepts like space travel, fuel, and post-human existence will be easy peasey.

yeah Charlie, you let me know how that "hold on long enough" optimism is working for you after the comet hits and the Morlocks are chewing on your liver.

Charlie said...

Mmm... liver.
