Recession???

Recession? What recession?
So, it seems that this "global recession" has not impacted negatively on everyone.
Check this out!
It's a Mercedes Benz owned by an Abu Dhabi oil billionaire (naturally).
Featuring the newly developed V10 quad turbo with 1,600 horsepower and 2800nm of torque
0-100km/h in less than 2secs, 1/4 mile in 6.89secs running on biofuel.
By the way, that is NOT stainless steel people. It's WHITE GOLD!!

Nice to see somebody doing their bit for global warming.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

The oil billionaire is obviously 'making hay while the sun shines' in more ways than one as one day his oil wells will dry up.
As for recession - what recession? Judging by the sight of the trolleys piled high in my local supermarket (much of the stuff one can well do without IMO) I am beginning to doubt that there is one!  Crazy

Re: Recession???

I haven't been to Abu Dhabi for a few years now, but biofuel sounds like "coals to Newcastle". I wonder how many petrol stations there offer it?
