The history of oil

A short comment on a recent entry linked me to Rob Newman and his History of Oil. Courtesy of Google Video, this link drives you to a serious comedy piece that is worth the time spent to watch it.

I really admire those artists that are able to endorse factual information and turn it into something enjoyable and memorable. Bill Hicks had demonstrated that the crudest reality can be embedded in humor without losing a bit of it’s valur and sense and even get more impact from the transformation. I am not writing that everything should be turned to comedy to be effectively transmitted in the global information age that we live in but how do I enjoy Jon Stewart’s Daily Show

Now, about the DIGG entry : both the story and the comment show that even « info gluttons » have missed the fact that Iran has switched most of it’s foreign assets from US dollar to Euro during the four last years.
