Burrito bites

Happy Nonfarm Friday! And it has been more fun than a barrel full of monkeys, as a big miss from the jobs data has sent markets reeling. Crude has tumbled this week, as US inventories reach a 22-yr high while demand remains mediocre. As for natural gas, a  huge withdrawal has sent storage levels below the 5-yr average, encouraging prices to try to push on to new 18-month highs. But enough from me, here’s the treats:

–Why shale gas won’t kill wind or solar.

–Is the ethanol mandate pumping up gas prices?

–21 photos of people carrying way too much stuff.

–The hard math on fossil fuels.

–Is the internet too hot for data centers to handle?

–Could a coconut save your life?

–Can you have too much solar energy?

–How much gold is there in the world? (spoiler: not much)

Why ‘The Walking Dead’ is basically ‘Toy Story’.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to US oil inventories, for reaching their highest level since 1990.

The Burnt Burrito Award of the Week  goes to US natural gas storage levels, for falling below the five-year average for the first time since September 2011, and a wacky 32% below last year’s level.

Have a slam dunkin’ weekend!
