    Tesla - Copper - Mongolia - Russia

    Just pondering.

    If everything goes electric, we need a LOT more copper.
    Copper is mined in desserts in Mongolia and I know they upping mining work.
    Mongolia is on the southern edge of Russian borders.
    Russia doesnt' mind the odd incursion.
    China is to it's south.

    Largely zinc or stainless steel, most of the lead or copper has been nicked.

    We currently get it from south america, china and australia for the most part, so for now I think that's not the concern.

    Re: Tesla - Copper - Mongolia - Russia

    You want to worry about Lithium more, given, for example, most transportation will be porting over to electric over the next 20-30 years.

    I hope they don't run out of Mongolian desserts.

    Sorry!

    You just had to do it. Now I'm going to have to bring out the big guns.

    Rooves as a plural for of roof is dated, but not incorrect. The Oxford English Dictionary lists “rooves” as an alternate to roofs, one of several outdated spellings used in the UK, and in New England as late as the 19th century.

    Being a whingeing millennial, you're the exception that proves (or is that proofs???) the rule.

    You don't know you're born, etc, etc. Bloody avocado on toast.

    It's more a state of mind and a state of being, than an actual number.
    When my mate Steve was 19, people thought he was at least 37, because he was a born Grumpy Old Man.

    My mate Dave, however, has spent decades cultivating a complex persona that hinges upon his becoming old and somehow uses this age to justify his arrogant, pedantic obstinacy, deliberate ignorance and old-fashioned pretentions... and now that he's well into his 50s, he's absolutely revelling it. It also means he gets to wear hats, smoke a pipe (although he vapes, these days) and carry a Gentleman's Cane on the basis that it's his "old man's walking stick"... Were he a younger man, he is the sort who would intentionally become a Hipster, if that in itself weren't so fashionable.

    But being young enough, you still have time to change your future, Marty...!!
