I'm convinced that if we discovered recoverable oil in all 49 states built pipelines to refineries in all 49 states, it wouldn't take that many ears before we'd be on some sort of oil crisis again.

During the oil crisis of the late 70's-early 80's when long lines were seen at gas stations, gas guzzling cars lost favor to more fuel efficient models. But when that crisis was over, supplies returned to normal, and crude oil prices fell, memories were short.

There was an earlier crisis in the early 1970's. In the USA we actually had (gasp!) rationing and price controls. And, guess what? They started looking for alternatives!!!!

I think a lot of the "crises" resulted from media perpetrated hype than anything else. And I would venture a guess that many folks burned as much fuel searching for fuel and waiting in lines, as was actually pumped.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
