Comment Re:NASA says $10Bn (Score 3, Insightful) 248

Yes but you forgot the biggest waste of American tax payer money defense. There is no justifiable threat to the amount of money we have spent on the defense theater since 9/11. If you pumped 10% of what was put into the Department of Defense into NASA over those years who knows the breakthroughs and missions that could have happened.

No its more like you pay $20 a week to be able to get 5 bagels an hour and then someone else pays $20 for 5 an hour as well. That means at minimum the bagel shop should be making 10 bagels an hour to supply what they promised to both customers even if you usually only get 1/hr and only rarely 5 and the other guy uses his full 5/hr most of the time. ( we aren't taking into account the fact bagels go bad this is bandwidth nor food) If they can't make enough bagels they shouldn't promise that many.

I see that working out well. Unless of course it isn't a hokes and the crazy guy with the hostages answers the phone with the police on the other line asking if things are ok because they just received a call. Which will end with a "I'm sorry someone wasted your time but everything is fine here." Or even worse "What the police?! Alright assholes which one of you called the pigs *gunshot* *gunshot* *screams* *heavy breathing* no no everything is fine."

The nicest thing about the Alto is that it doesn't run faster at night.
