    All things considered, it was a very large expenditure for very little direct gain. Spin offs occurred in technology, yes, but investing half the sum for alternative energies would probably have put us in a much better place than we are.

    Ahh, but they DO use hydrogen, a very good alternative fuel.

    And God has not damned me; we have conversations every evening and he is very happy with me! You, however..., well, I don't want to tell tales out of school, but he has had some harsh words to say! Not just you, either! He is a communist and is very displeased at all those who speak badly of it. I let him think I am a commie so he doesn't get upset, so don't tell him I really am not.

    PS My hips are not exceptionally big, either!

    If you've seen some of the other crap they've posted, you'd know they aren't joking.
