    just so you guys get the gist of this:

    i was sent an email showing me pics of a saudi princes custom
    audi that was plated in silver. the caption said something to the effect of: now you see why they don't mind charging us $2.75 a gallon.

    In europe they pay 6 dollars per a gallon, stop your bitching you live in the country with the highest income per capita and people who make 7000 a year have to pay double what you pay for gas.

    What's way sicker than that house though...

    My fucking god.

    From ebaumsworld.

    "You no longer need to wonder why gasoline prices are so expensive.
    The following isn't a hotel.

    It's a house! It's owned by the family of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan,
    the former president of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Abu-Dhabi."

    Hmm...

    More research shows this might be a hoax.

    From http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/weblog/...ltan_al_nahyan/

    The Palace of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan
    Status: Email hoax (real pictures, fake caption)
    Bad: Falling for an email hoax. Worse: Using the hoax as the basis for your presentation to the local city planning commission, thereby displaying your gullibility to the entire public.

    As reported by the Muncie Star Press (no link), Don Love gets the award for doing the latter. He received an email containing a series of pictures of an opulent estate (shown below), with the caption:

    In case you're wondering where this hotel is, it isn't a hotel at all. IT IS A HOUSE! It's owned by the family of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the former president of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Abu-Dhabi.

    Enraged, he made a slide presentation out of the pictures and showed them to the planning commission, as part of his effort to get them to approve construction of an ethanol plant. His point was that they should promote local energy projects, to prevent all the city's money going to greedy, oil-rich sheiks. He told them: "This is the type of thing being done with your petro dollars that I want to re-patriate. Keep in mind the gentleman has more than 20 wives. This is one of 70 baths. Some are bigger than my house. This is his little swimming pool. These are his cars."

    Of course, the pictures don't show a sheik's palace. In reality they show a fancy hotel in Abu Dhabi called the Emirates Palace. All the stuff about 20 wives is bogus too. If Love had bothered to do any research, he would have found this out. He probably could also have found some real pictures of a sheik's palace, which would have been a more effective way of making his point. Incidentally, my other house (the one in my daydreams) looks just like the one in the pictures.

    I found other sites saying its true, who knows.

    How is a silver plated A8 the gist of their money? How many saudi princes do you think there are? Take a guess.

    soup: hundreds.

    what i was saying about getting the gist of the thread is this: take a look at the link i posted. america's oil, the number one source of it is domestic. number 2 canadian oil, number 3, saudi oil. the gist of it is that we aren't making them rich, the u.k. is. hell, the rest of the world is.
