Kinda of a stupid thought, but I'll through it out there. What if we have a nationwide vote every year to decide what catagory gets funding for science? x% goes to funding Biology. x% goes to physic's. x% goes to astronomy. x% goes to socialigy. Then which ever system you vote for, you pick which sub catagory gets funding, based on the overall catagories funding. say Biology gets 40%, 50% might go toward drug research, and 50% to new surgery techniques

The absent ones are always at fault.
