  1. Oil rents extracted by the Venezuelan state since 1940 have provided the lubricant for penetrating virgin territory.

    Man, we didn't have anything like that in my Economics class. Maybe I should take it again with a different professor. :)

    That sounds like an interesting class. Is the focus restricted to Latin America?

    I had thought Venezuela's oil was off-shore, so I wonder what he meant by virgin territory.
     
  6. Yep, it's a Latin American economic history course.

    Venezuela's oil is mostly in Lake Maracaibo, which is completely within Venezuelan territory. "Virgin territory" refers to those parts of the Amazon and Orinoco basins that were still completely unsettled at the time. Venezuela's a big country and the population is largely concentrated in the north.

    jeez'm crow! thanks for posting that url again. :rolleyes:

    did it ever occur to you that some people need to eat within hours?

    of course, one can just tell what is going on in that site from the url, so hopefully no one will unwittingly fall into it and become permanently scarred for life.

  12. Yeah, there is a girl who was in my dorm freshman year who we used to call "Top Gun" for obvious reasons....

    We counted about 97 different guys going into her room at night over the 15-week semester. That must take talent. LOL.

    I´m Venezuelan and really like to travel and meet people, so I do a lot of "national tourism" and I can tell you something: there´s still a lot of "virgin territory" in this country. And if you add the fact we have the most beautiful women in the world............:D :cool:

  18. 44 days till my girlfriend lets me break in her virgin territory. She demands I wait till I'm 17 aswell. She's such a tease.

    On a more positive note though, she's coming round to mine today, I'm giving her a nice bubble bath... full body massage... then what ever she wants ;)

    Maybe I'm overreacting, but I found that absurdly degrading...
