Looking for a specific Rage comic and/or Rant and can't find it?

Setting the Record Straight

Yes, I know. There is no actual Spindletop, Texas, but the sign in today's 'toon couldn't say "Welcome to a salt dome oil field located in the southern portion of Beaumont, Texas". Descriptive, yes, but I like my way better.

In case you're still confused, here's a photo of a majestic and awe-inspiring Beaumont/Spindletop taken around 1901. This is what an unregulated oil industry looks like. Click the cute little sucker for a larger version.

Aliens: The pumps are operational, sir. Terraforming has begun.
Yes! In 200 solar orbits this planet will be ready for our people.
Do you think the native species will suspect, sir?
No. In fact, they're so primitive they'll probably take the residue back to their nests. Heh-heh-heh.
You know. I... I almost feel sorry for the poor things.
Don't worry. They'll never know what hit them.
Welcome to Spindletop, Texas. (oil wells)
