I use toilet paper where is printed countries... Then I look at them and think "Oh this country is gonna get all ****** "
Then I remember them because they are full of crap.

I used to play video games on the toilet, but now I just bring my laptop into the bathroom and try to finish my dump before my battery runs out

I wasted a Saturday playing a map game of Europe after one of those stupid "Hur Durr Americans don't know **** " posts and I wanted to see how many European countries I could match. Got everything other than the Southeast. I can now correctly place any country in Europe without even the outlines on the map. Day well wasted.

I'm an ace at geography, and when I passed my A-levels my dad showed me his school report from like 1960. It said, and I remember these words exactly, "I am in a constant state of amazement that Nigel can find his way to and from school every day."

If I had this as a child, I'd be an expert in History, Georgraphy, politics, past monarchs, language, foreign culture, WWII and other historical wars and, of course, racism.

it doesn't work-you're not going to lean all the way over while ******** to learn where Yemen is. Oh you know the Americas alright, but no, the secrets of the East are foreign to you.

go to Antarctica

find untapped oil reserves

profit
#69 to #39 - sapphos (11/27/2012) [-]
Actually it would be highly unprofitable. Go figure.
User avatar #72 to #69 - whitie (11/28/2012) [-]
when did oil become highly unprofitable?
#73 to #72 - sapphos (11/28/2012) [-]
Before you've even thought about tapping those reserves you're going to need permission to get that **** out of there. Now, oil companies don't have the best of reputations when it comes to pumping oil out of pristine environments, for example the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska. To get this permission you're going to need to spend millions or billions of dollars on a campaign big enough to warrant the permission. You're going to have greenpeace, save the whales, save the penguins and save the iceburgs on your back, and until you placate them, you're getting no oil. Also there are masses of protocols, treaties and political stances on anything to do with that place, so you're going to be having international conferences with countries across the world all wanting a bit of your oil.

Secondly: accessibility. We're talking about the southernmost spit of ice in the world. Shipping huge tankers full of oil, while being careful about it is going to cost millions with every single trip. (You're going to need tight security too). You're going to need people to live down there, so that means somehow generating electricity, shipping food, water, shipping waste out of there and disposing of it safely. The employees will need to be paid decent cash for living out there.

Thirdly: getting the oil. While not stepping on rare lichen, you've got to pump whatever oil you can find, using machinery that can withstand those temperatures and not break, stop moving or freezing at any time. What's that? You've got to ship parts out too? Make that a few million more.

There are better places to get oil than Antarctica.

the less oil we have in the rest of the world ( so pretty much as time goes on ) the higher the price of oil, eventually in the near future the cost of setting up will be outweighed by the profit from selling oil at the extremely high price it will be at that point in time, maybe not now, but soon, and if you could garner a relatively small amount of money, you could discover where most of the oil is, and sell it to the oil company's for a high price, you don't necessarily have to drill it yourself, just need to discover it
