Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
How many girls did you see working the rigs? Since this is the society of "the end of men," I'm sure the girls were keeping the hydrocarbons flowing for their Volvos and Jettas.
Looks like you had fun. I like the bike. What kind of motorcycle is that?
That's quite a tool that you are holding.
Ugh. I know you had probably had fun, but the one time I worked on a pulling rig for a tiny little Texas oil company back in the very early 1990's convinced me to become a computer programmer. It's HARD work and crude oil fresh out of the ground is not tasty. The guys that work in the oil field helping the economy tread water until the boot is finally lifted off its neck have a very tough job.
That giant wrench that worker is holding reminds me of the tools I used years ago at a local cement plant as a industrial electrician. It was dangerous as hell though. Not for the faint of heart.Still good times and memories. Can't say that about the my time as a white collar puke though.If a guy can handle these sorts of environments, it's worth it. You can make good money and not have be some beta male's bitch in some office somewhere or having your soul sucked out like Dilbert in a Hermann miller cube farm.
Why are you cruising on a racing bike instead of a cruising bike ?Is it because it was cheaper to buy and drinks less gas ?
