Flip a switch, turn it off, you won't be able to breathe. Either way you're a casualty.
I remembered what I was going to post last time! Unfortunately, only the broadest strokes remain in my memory but it was another entry in the "things sound cooler when you say them out loud " category. And that is that using oil is a lot cooler when you realize your car is running on the liquefied putrescent remains of dead dinosaurs. That you are literally burning for power. And that the latest problems in the gulf is the because the oil companies 'dug too deep and too greedily'. And now a blackness is upon the land, a dark stain covering the ocean as the dead terrible reptiles that once ruled the planet strike back at the life that replaced them, poisoning everything around them, punishing the mammals that replaced them for their hubris.
The best part being that that's all exactly what's actually happening.
