Where is oil useless

Scheuring's word for Saturday: The way things are going

Because of their foresight and great understanding, humans have always been very good at foreseeing future developments. “I believe in the horse. The automobile is a temporary phenomenon, ”declared Kaiser Wilhelm II confidently. And he wasn't the only one telling the world about horses. "Who the hell wants to hear actors speak?" US film producer Harry Warner asked when talkies were invented. And nobody wanted that - not even when Til Schweiger later began to speak in films. The Decca record company was skeptical of the Beatles in 1962 and refused them a record deal on the grounds: "Guitar bands are going out of style." Therefore, nobody has heard from them since then. The Petersburg Academy of Sciences recognized very realistically as early as 1806: “Oil is a useless separation of the earth. By its nature, it is a sticky liquid that smells and cannot be used in any way. ”No wonder nobody cares about oil to this day. Even clever politicians were usually spot on with their forecasts. The SPD politician Gerhard Schröder said in June 1989 that after 40 years of the Federal Republic one shouldn't lie to a new generation about the chance of reunification and prophesied: "It doesn't exist." The wall will still be there in 50 or 100 years. Therefore, it is still in a splendid position today, as anyone can verify.
