Well yesterday sucked and in fact is still sucking in my head ! I had planned on getting my new amp soon, I decided on the Carvin Belair 50 watt 2x12 combo and the additional 2x12 cab for it. My wife and I also have our vacation planned for the first week of January. We already paid the deposit for our vacation, and yesterday found out our poor little dog has to go in for surgery next week. With her surgery going to cost upwards of $2,000 dollars, we may have to cancel our vacation and lose the deposit, and now my new amp is never going to be ordered ! Damn you, Damn you things that control my happiness, always raining on my damn campfire ! Now christmas will probably suck also as we don't have an extra $2,000 dollars sitting around ! Sigh.... I give up man.

My dorm's shutting down for the week of Thanksgiving, I have no family to stay with, I can crash at a friend's house but he smokes more pot than Willie Nelson and I'm applying for an internship in December, I have $100 bucks to stretch into 5 days of room and board... and I'll probably have to go to Tijuana for the week because I don't have enough money to stay in the US.

Oh yeah, Tijuana is bad if you're a white boy who's going in alone and doesn't speak Spanish, AND speaks English with a southern accent. (The last time I was there, someone got shot about two blocks away from where we were staying)

Other than that, I can't complain biggrin.gif

I've done the maths for this, Oil Prices are 3 times as much in the UK at the pump as in the US. The relatively low price of oil in the states compared to other countries seems to be the driving reason behind that fact that products such as Guitars seem to cost half as much over there. tongue.gif



You know why gas is 3 times higher in Uk ??Taxes ,,the UK charges about 75% tax on its gas.In the US maybe 20%,but the actual cost of the gas is whats so high here and even though its more there we are still used to having it at that price and depend on it

Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Which is why, having moved from the UK to the USA, I wonder why people panic about the price of gas here - it seems like its almost free to me smile.gif

Man if we all could ban together and create a drivers strike. By car pooling or ridding bikes, just cut the use down by 15 percent we could fix our own price.
However, I did see where the real problem my lie. And that is china told all the oil suppliers they would pay a few dollars higher for oil no matter what other countries offer. So if we say 120 a barrel they will gladly pay 125. If we said 200 they would say 205. They said they will beat the world no matter what the cost.



I wish we all could strike cause honestly it would bring down gas prices big time.No doubt about it

...

I'm having trouble understanding this whole upset about gas prices thing, it confuses me, I guess I'm just going to have to put it down to different economies and percecptions.

But seriously, you guys would not like it over here from that perspective everything cost twice as much... gas...guitars...cars.

I have no moans for today, which I guess is a first tongue.gif
