    Not smarter--they have more resouirces (funding) to develop these things. They rely on engineers and scientists whom they fund to develop things. I know it's hard for back woodsers to understand such foreign concepts, but the government can do much more than individuals on their own when it comes to huge projects and developments generally speaking.

    And to be cynics and say that really would have helpe NJ sarcastically shows narrowmindedness. First, we don't know that it wouldn't have had applications in NJ in certain areas and secondly, as it is used and observed, improvements and additions might be able to be made to develop better plugs or additional things that would help in conjuction with the plugs. No wonder repubs want to take us back in time (like Romeny who is not foward thinking at all).:mad:
