No one gives a crap anymore
« on: February 22, 2012, 05:38:39 AM »
You can realize the level of intensity in a gameworld by the number of posts each day. Since we started this world to just about 2 weeks ago (real time), your post was answered with 3 different approaches before you press submit.

But now, not so much. Is this a sign that we reached cruising altidute in the gameworld and it will be seat belt sign off and cabin lights dimmed for the rest of the gameworld?

Fuel has barely even spiked over 600, which i think is quite monumental for a Modern Times Scenario. It's actually almost ridiculous that it has been this low throughout the game.

I will still have my seat belt fastened when the sign is off, simply because we don't know when the (must coming) turbulence will come. lol

Inflation IRL between 2000 and 2010 was ~35%, which means the $600 fuel price is really closer to $825 or so in past MT scenarios (MT6 started in 1995).

Fuel prices can rise faster than inflation, or they can drop.  In RL, fuel prices outpaced inflation by a huge margin.  The table linked here:
http://inflationdata.com/inflation/inflation_rate/historical_oil_prices_table.asp

shows an increase from average price of $37 in 2004 to $91 in 2008.  And, 2008 is an average for the year.  I think the price hit a peak of > $140 in mid 2008.  Jet fuel went from $.90 cents per gallon in 2004 to $4.21 in mid 2008

To topic starter, would suggest to clean up your language a bit. The topic is not very appropriate.

You are right, I am sorry. I was just trying to start a little debate since people seemed a bit disconnected compared to beginning of game world. And I thought the t***le would really catch people's atttention. But it was wrong.

If I could change it I would. But it doesnt let me.

Sorry Sami

Disclaimer: The word that got blocked off for profanity (I guess?) is supposed to be "t***le". Not sure why it got "beeped". Definetly not trying to be inappropiate while Im apologizing for being inappropiate!
