Get real. These multibillion dollar projects like ITER, Livermore (discontinued), etc are boondogles. They give grad students and postdocs experience and papers to write, and they're fodder for breathless popsci reporting but they'll never put a single fucking watt on the grid.

+ - Edward Snowden Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize->

Submitted by seven of five
seven of five (578993) writes "Two Norwegian lawmakers have jointly nominated National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize, they said Wednesday on their party website.

Snowden has "revealed the nature and technological prowess of modern surveillance," and by doing so has contributed to peace, said a joint statement by Bard Vegar Solhjell and Snorre Valen of the Socialist Left Party.

Nominations for this year's Nobel Peace Prize — whose previous winners include such figures as the late South African President Nelson Mandela, Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and President Barack Obama — close on Saturday, with the winner announced in October."

Turgidson: Doctor, you mentioned the ratio of ten women to each man. Now, wouldn't that necessitate the abandonment of the so-called monogamous sexual relationship, I mean, as far as men were concerned?
Strangelove: Regrettably, yes. But it is, you know, a sacrifice required for the future of the human race. I hasten to add that since each man will be required to do prodigious...service along these lines, the women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature.
Russian Ambassador: I must confess, you have an astonishingly good idea there, Doctor.

Here's the thing though. It may be profitable for the bank to do the loan; they get some of the money, then they get the car back, then they sell the car to someone else. The "Rent-to-Own" outfits count on repos for this reason. The automatic vehicle shutoff is just a new way to enforce the repo part.

All constants are variables.
