Didn't they also get 'more' money to continue the research? If so, when are they going to give it back? In another article I read on this it stated to the effect, "It's not customary for universities to return such funds." I also found this quote interesting... “As a matter of fact, I think the team came up with more novel ideas during the past four months than the past four years I have been at Iowa State University,” Cho wrote. Translation: "Han's work got us the money, but we weren't counting on him to bring us a win."

I wonder what would happen if you made a video game about a courtroom and made the judges look like judges in real life. And then have those judges make legal decisions they normally wouldn't make. Even show some taking bribes to throw cases. As long as they're in the setting they've achieved renown in, all's good. Right?

Several decades ago the way the mail was delivered was as follows... A van drove through town dropping off a mailman at the corner of each block. By the time the mailman was going up and down the block the van would be back to pick him up. Each van carried 7-10 carriers. Why the heck can we not go back to doing this again? It would cut down vehicle costs, automotive maintenance, etc... The only time you'd need more vans would be during the christmas season. Also, I remember quite well that when the Post Office asked for permission to raise rates one year, congress approved. Two weeks later it was announced the top 25 people at the Post Office split several million in bonuses. Hmmm...
