Carpool A sign encouraging carpooling during the gas shortage resulting from the 1973 oil crisis Carpooling (also car-sharing, ride-sharing, lift-sharing and covoiturage), is the sharing of car journeys so that more than one person travels in a car.

Carpooling is seen as a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way to travel as sharing journeys reduces carbon emissions, traffic congestion on the roads, and the need for parking spaces. #secondamendment Filed under secondamendment “The world is a fine place and worth fighting for and I hate very much to leave it.” ― Ernest #Hemingway , For Whom the Bell Tolls Filed under hemingway “Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward statism.

I have attempted to embark on a reading program of the great literature starting back with Homer. The Oxford Classics has over 700 books and one wonders where to start. All the literature seems to be intrconnected from Balzac to Grisham.

As Nibiru sweeps by it will very well strip some of our upper atmosphere away, and the gravitational pull it has on our earth will create great earthquakes and super tsunamis that will change the surface of the earth. Most people, of course, will perish, but humanity will live on- only to have to start from scratch and build itself up again.
