Why build a pipeline? Why can't we consume our own oil?

The bulk of the US's imported oil comes from us??

http://www.consumerenergyreport.com/research/crude-oil/where-the-us-gets-its-oil-from/

There is a small interesting clause in the NFTA agreement that states that exports from Canada can not be reduced and have to stay at the same rate per month as the past three months averaged. Right now the USA makes up 2/3's of our production.

I have have a feeling the Chinese portion of oil shipped will partially come out of the US Portion as Beijing has leveraged the US controlled debt on Washington. Or something of that nature.

Square pyramids.

is that slant height or peak height from the base plain?

EDIT:
If its slant height is 10m its 40m

SA=bl/2 l=slant height b=base length SA=surface area
SA=50
50=(b10/2)
b=10

bx4=perimeter
10x4 is 40

peak height 10 answer is 37.7124

a2 + b2 = c2
100 + B2 = l
100 = bx2

50= AB
b=A/2

Sqaure root of 50= A or B
A=7.071
7.071/2
b=3.5355
now put b into Pythagorus

100 + (3.5355 Squared) =c(squared)
100 + 12.49976 = 112.49976
(root)112.49976 = 10.60659
c=10.60659
c=l
l=10.60659

SA=bl/2 l =slant height b=base length SA=surface area
SA=50
50=b10.60659/2 multiply by 2 to remove the divisor
100=b10.60659
b=9.4281

b4=perimeter
9.4281x4 =
37.7124

Sorry if it doesn't make sense, but Im in the car on my way to sea otter and we are looking for a motel for the night.

Juicy Levers with Elixir Calipers?

Its possible. I dont know how much of an improvement it would be over just a juicy caliber. Top race teams mix and match. Ultimate levers with code calibers and such. But when they really need a lot of breaking power they use code levers with code calibers.
