Just like last week, this week on Thee Comic Column I’m dealing with something that I had really high hopes for but unfortunately let me down. However, the difference this week is that I AM going to give this book a second, third and forth, fifth and sixth chance, because I believe in Rick Remender THAT much.

I didn’t read Avengers Vs. X-Men, haven’t in fact read any Avengers or X-Men book in years other than Remender’s Uncanny X-force, which was introduction to the man and his wonderful writing. Still, I’ve tried to brush up on a little bit of the set-up for this new series via various websites and I think Remender has a pretty good chance to make something big and bad here.

The Value of Nature – Mallacoota

The southeastern most tip of Australia provides a wealth of history, knowledge and enjoyment. Gippsland is the area and if you check good’ol Google maps you’ll find the Mallacoota Inlet (map). Situated just south of the New South Wales and Victorian border, the Mallacoota Inlet displays stunning sights and boasts numerous fun activities but it’s importance lies in the function it serves to the environment.

Fuel for Thought: LPG

LPG v Petrol

Why can Australia effective use LPG for public consumption and the US not? (image courtesy of drive.com.au)

A right-handed turn from the left lane. Around the roundabout to turn around. Yielding to electric trams as they stop to pick up passengers. Yep, just a few of the challenges a driver will face in Melbourne, Vic. Not to mention paying on average AUS$1.37 per liter which equates to nearly US$5.20 per gallon at the current exchange rate. yikes.

But the right-sided steering column is not the only thing different between Australian and United States automobiles. How about cars that supplement their fuel usage with Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)? We have school buses, heavy machinery and public worker fleets that run on it in the States, why not cars?
