This is great. Apparently these guys impersonate executives from unfriendly corporations and get themselves invited to speak to conferences and the like, and then screw with the audience.

Calgary this week, Exxon Mobil executive Florian Osenberg told a rapt audience that the ongoing climate change crisis is no big deal because the dead people can provide “more feedstock.”

In a rousing speech for 300 oilmen and oilwomen with partner Shepard Wolff, the executive reassured the crowd that, even if billions die from expected climate-change-related disasters, the industry will continue to prosper. The oil companies could “keep fuel flowing,” said the execs, by turning all the dead people into oil.

Wolff “described the technology used to render human flesh into a new Exxon oil product called Vivoleum,” according to a press release about the event. “3-D animations of the process brought it to life” and candles were lit in honor of an Exxon Mobil janitor who was the first to undergo the process. The speakers were quickly removed from the stage when it was learned, via a final video testimonial from the deceased, that the candles were the janitor.

Everyone hates telstra. A lot

20 05 2007

There’s a great piece on The Age website about Telstra and how they’re frackin up the internet in this country by abusing their monopoly and killing off competition. Simultaneously ripping people off with obscenley high prices and slow speeds.

The article is titled, Why We All Hate Telstra. Amen.

Oh, and ignore the propaganda bullshit on the Telstra website, Now We Are Talking
