I really hope you are being sarcastic or something, and you don't really think that...

The German airforce has over 200 front line offensive aircraft in its inventory, 109 of them being the Eurofighter.

The German army has over 230 Leopard 2 main battle tanks, a tank commonly held as one of the best in the world, and over 150 PzH 2000 self propelled guns, again commonly held as one of the best in the world.

The German navy has 81 commissioned ships in service, 43 of them front line offensive in nature.

Germany isn't exactly a nation I would want to currently face in battle, not even with a top tier military such as the US, France, UK et al - those military's would almost certainly win any competition, but they wouldn't come out unscathed....

The problem is they get sold a bill of good they never use. We have smartboard in every classroom, the actual smart portion of them is nearly never used. A projector and a screen would have sufficed just fine as that is what the use. Now the smartboard can easily cost 10x what the projector and screen does.

It's pretty much the same with anything technical, school see huge markups often when the bidding is limited to approved vendors for this or that matching grant.

Get a cell phone plan that does not suck, my Son's costs me all of 72 a year + his use which is a rounding error. (ting BTW great company).

Cell phone give a level of communication and thus freedom. Preteen is an important age to start riding bikes to friends go with friends to the park etc. Basically lots of things where the parental involvement takes a step back.

Muni's should make a level playing field. We have the tech to do it, a single fiber per home/business (ok maybe more for business) can with cheap passive gear provide 8+ different connections (bidirectional CWDM). So the muni's role is the physical plant they provide a point for all comers to connect possibly a L2 network for others to build upon and to provide baseline services.

Part of all that is to stop thinking in IPv4, it's trivial for a town to get enough IPv6 IP's to hand out /64 or greater to everybody. That makes it trivial for a single firewall to connect up multiple networks and route correctly. So you might end you with a muni network the connects muni services, schools etc etc. Your ISP who may or may not bundle cable phone etc but you could get IP based phone/cable from others and still have 4 free CWDM bands for later expansion.

I used to have to fight to get a sleeper car on the overnight train from nyc/boston to chicago. Compared to a late booked redeye it was cheaper but took 10 hours longer. For me it get me to city center for 8:30 leaving at 7pm but I was well rested, had a good dinner/breakfast and I was showered and ready to go.
