The mental midgets cancelled the Superconducting Super Collider
years ago. had that been built, *we* would have been in charge
of creating the micro-black-holes instead of the Europeans.
it also would have advanced superconducting magnet technology
years sooner, too.

Oh well - we outsource everything else. Now we're outsourcing
the creating of new knowledge, too. pretty soon, the only thing
Americans will know how to do is order a Big Mac, although the
only people able to do *that* will be the ones who can speak
the particular flavor of non-Englished used at your neighborhood

Note that about 3000 years ago, the Chinese decided to just
sit down and become stupid. The good news is that they managed
to live through it anyway and catch up remarkably quickly.
I wonder how long it will take the US to re-awaken and start
playing catch-up?
