    Energy and Thoughts on a cold night too far north

    *Interesting how nationwide rig counts are not increasing despite $80-WTI, and the number of DUCs are declining. There are typically three main reasons for rig counts not increasing:
    • operators showing restraint; focused on free cash flow, not growth.
    • supply chain shortages impacting oil industry.
    • labor shortage.
    *Today I lean towards a labor shortage. But the industry is also highly dependent on technology (think "computer chips") and supply chain shortages are impacting drilling.

    *But the long pole in the tent: labor. I have open adds in all my offices and can't find anyone to work.

    *I don't see it getting better any time soon.

    *Every day I lean more towards triple digit WTI and record high gasoline...Disclaimer here that I understand Predicting the WTI price is a fool's errand, yet it appears to be in our face this time.

    * I don't see a way out of the global financial debacle the Federal Reserve has put us all in w/o a US Bitcoin standard that runs in parallel with the US Dollar. Savings account (BTC) running beside checking account (US Dollar).

    * Difference between inflation X number of years ago vs. today.... here's a couple. Interest rates X years ago were in the high teens and debt was nowhere near today's levels....

    * Again, why is anyone in the bond market at all is beyond me short of contractual obligations...more I think about it maybe my question should be why is anyone in the debt market?

    *How much BTC is enough? That's an N=1 in a personal life/lifestyle journey. Depending on where US dollar debasement goes and if global currencies begin to collapse into the US dollar and and and and it might not be as much as I once thought.... yet I live a pretty simple lifestyle and plan on living in a zip code that is optimal for Light, Water, Magnetism, and BTC. That is my utopia and don't believe it has yet been built. I believe it will unveil itself in the next 5-10 years. For now, I will hang in the hills and watch it all play out.

    There's a phrase in the Bitcoin space..."Bitcoin fixes this" that I have struggled with. Bitcoiners use it all the time and I believe too loosely.

    In the linked podcast Weinstein articulates what I have felt years now regarding this phrase.

    So much unnecessary fog in the masses today....

    Eric touches on numerous issues I have had through the years with Bitcoin Maxis. Seven...Eight years ago I could turn my head but he's correct when he mentions it's time for the grownups in the Bitcoin community to show up at the table.

    Breedlove has a whole series out with Eric that hits pretty good for me. The linked podcast below is only an hour long and is episode 5 in seven-part series. Might be couple more episodes in the mix.

    "Nature just cares about strategies that work"

    "Bitcoin is simply full of money geeks"

    "Let it be money before it's anything else" Money is fine simply fix it. Bitcoin automates the idea of a central bank. Fixed though code.

    Eric wants to push the Bitcoin community into a call to arms.....for the betterment of humanity. Build something with legacy credentials....massive endowment. Get off more of the same. Who will be the forward thinker of community that takes the lead in a decentralized world? Can that even happen?
