ex machina

(not so) deep thought on diesel economics.

as someone who owns a diesel (TDI) jetta and as someone who spends their days analyzing the tremendously complicated and intertwingled factors associated with the supply and demand of organic milk, i can't help but wonder why, after three or so years of diesel prices being between 25 cents and 75 cents higher than regular gas here in the u.s., suddenly the situation has suddenly reversed to the historical norm ( at least to my best recollection ) of diesel prices being well it's regular counterpart.

various flim-flammy reasons have been cited over the years as to why diesel prices shot up ( relatively speaking for all those that don't live here in the states ), but i've apparently missed the rational for the reversal of fortunes and why all the previous reasons are no longer swaying the price at the pump. hmmmm....

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
