It’s amazing what $2.75 a gallon for gas can buy. . . !!!
Imagine what $3.00 plus can buy…

This is a house, not a hotel. It is owned by the family of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the former president of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Abu-Dhabi.

Holy Smokes! This is just the type of photo commentary we have needed here – thanks for these images – they make quite an impression my friend. With gas prices raising and state level executive orders being issued against the price gauging that is already going on in states like Georgia, a reflection on the complex production of oil and the various impacts to individuals as well as nations and villages becomes more and more essential. Thanks for this great peek into one part of that production.

Holy cow! Gas in Georgia is selling at $6.00 a gallon. Considering that there are already alternatives to gasoline available but are blocked from our widespread usage and the spiraling prices on crude oil futures based on speculation from manipulated data that have been combined with a natural disaster, I wonder what the endgame will eventually be. But, it appears that it can not be good for us; in the long or short term.

flights are being cancelled, because they don’t have jet fuel. this is quickly spiraling out of control

i’m chatting with someone in Chapel Hill, there is NO gas in the area. none. if this starts to spread to other cities, it will get ugly in a hurry. there is not enough national guard to restore order if this starts to spread to SF, oakland, detroit, cleveland etc…

With Winter just around the corner many of the Northern States and higher eleveations will need oil to keep warm… I’m hoping that Bush won’t be too stingy with our 700 million barrel crude oil reserve… Also, where the heck are the Marines? People are shooting at rescue helicopters? This is absurd!

A pity to have all of our eggs in one basket.

According to Purportal.com:

These pictures are indeed real photographs of an impressive palatial structure, but contrary to the claims made in the accompanying text they evidently do indeed depict a hotel, not a private home. These are images of the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), a facility that “boasts 302 superior rooms and 92 magnificent suites each combining the ultimate in luxury with 22nd century technology.” (How they managed to obtain technology a hundred years in advance of the stuff available to the rest of us is something we haven’t yet figured out.)

As the Emirates Palace Hotel’s web site describes the accommodations offered (or soon to be offered) there:

All Palace rooms offers plasma screens, interactive TV’s and high speed Internet access.

8 restaurants representing cuisine from across the globe will be opening in December 2004 with 10 additional outlets scheduled to open in 2005. Internationally branded specialty restaurants will include Iranian, seafood, Mediterranean, Arabic, and Asian cusine complemented by a number of relaxing lounges and cafes.

A selection of the worlds most exclusive brands in luxury jewellery and fashion for the discerning shopper.

The longest private beach in Abu Dhabi, 1.3 km of golden sands and two stunning pools artistically landscaped on the east and west wings of the Palace.

Two Spa fit for kings and queens will be located in the east and west wings, featuring a luxury line of beauty products along

Emirates Palace will be home to the best Marina UAE with private berths for yachts. Full Service facilities will be available as well as leisure facilities.

Many of the pictures shown above are also offered in the photo gallery on the hotel’s web site, including views of the many hotel restaurants, luxury suite bedrooms and bathrooms, swimming pools, and atria, as well as the cars available through their limousine service.
