Hi soviet budget committee,
We've spent a $100,000,000 so far on extensive experiments and still failed to discover an invisible, undetectable, force that no one's ever seen before. Why don't you invest 10x more in this theory? We can't do these experiments for any less, this force is reeeeaaaaallly hard to find: it has never been observed, has no basis in anything we know about reality or existing science and has failed to show up despite extensive testing worldwide.
What else are you going to do with $900,000,000? Feed your starving populace after you decided that the other non-pseudo-science idea that abusing crops made them more fruitful than watering and fertilizing them properly, which no-one had ever observed working before and all experiments to demonstrate it failed?
I hear that we may be competing with the space race guys who are trying to find a certain tea-pot in orbit between us and Mars. I must say that our force is way more real than that tea-pot even though our research will be more expensive to pursue.
P.S. Some say we must have some sort of mind control over the budget committee to keep getting these funds, but we just smile and let them meditate on their own statements. I'm sure you'll give us the extra money.
