but there's always depends...

Are you kidding? The Media is making WAY more than 49.5 million airing all the garbage about the Zimmerman trial.
45 times? Where did you get this BASELESS figure from? I work with plenty of Indians here in my US Govt contract, who are getting paid American wages, and do top notch work. So take your pick, Indian Developers in America can do the job at American wages, OR Indian developers in India can do the Job, and Indian wages. here's some advice for you: 1) Ignore Inflammatory Sensationalism 2) Accept the fact that the United States government MUST find ways to do more with less, thanks to the sequester. 3) It IS cheaper, MUCH cheaper, to outsource work to a place where wages are cheaper. Again, I'm happy to see DC being smart about the money they spend.
Hardly "disgraceful", but yes, it would be considerably more expensive, from a labor perspective, for an American contractor to fulfill the contract. India's per capita GDP: $1510 VS United States per capita GDP: $48100 so at a ration of 31:1, the contract might cost more than 1.5 billion. Personally, I'm glad they are looking for cost cutting measure where they can. (http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=GDP%2C+United+States%2C+India)
I would estimate that between 50-200 people would be actively involved in this project, and probably shouldn't be thought of as "Large", or even "Larger". Furthur, any US government contract 100 million, in my experience, would never be classified as "Large". This is simply anti-political sensationalism.
Tell that to Nikolai Tesla. Intelligence requires growth of the mind; The core of intellectual growth requires creativity. Brute force memorization, while necessary, is nothing without the element of improvisation or creativity. School, at least for me, was mostly memorization of dates, events, figures, etc. Seldom did I see an opportunity to truly engage in my own ideas. Especially between the constant social pressures associated with school. "School" hardly seems a fitting name.
I can show you straight A students who's life became a total tragic wreck. I can show you a C's & D's student who became a successful & happy adult. Our current socialized childcare(AKA public school system) with their GPA's & Competitive academics, will one day be viewed in the same light as the medical practice of bleeding out the bad blood: harmful and counterproductive. I'm sure Murdoch5 would agree that schools too often lack the very core of learning: creativity.

Perhaps electrified zero-g super bubbles could be the first navigational shields?

From person to person, reactions to mind altering substances differ greatly, and it is irrelevant to encouraging this admittance of stupidity for "Spurious Thinking". We all do stupid things that can positively impact us, it is our job as humans to establish balance in our life. Widely unenforceable laws, blame assignment, and petty attacks from your peers will always be positively harmful to society, and they need to stop. Find ways to help those with substance abuse problems, be brave, believe in them, help them succeed in their daily/lifelong battle. Further, leave the rest of the world alone; you cant help it, and it doesn't need 'saving'.
