Woman: We're working on a cure for funding cuts
I COULD say some witty political comment here…but I don’t feel like it today :D
That isn’t how science always works gm. Sometimes you’re looking for the answer to a specific problem, and you find it. Sometimes you’re looking for the answer to a problem, you don’t find it, but you find something that puts you on the path to finding the answer, or find something that doesn’t help you in what you’re looking for, but helpfull elsewhere. Some research is purely for scientific advancement, and may not have practical applications when found, but might be the key to a future question. No one can know in advance what they’ll find, but still have to look to find answers. In any case, humanity is wealthier by increasing knowledge.
Don’t worry the government will print some more money.
Good luck with that – you’ll need it. :-(
Well-deservedly, this will be clipped and thumbtacked to hundreds of thousands of laboratory bulletin boards across the nation.
Find them soon please…
That’s the gist of what I was thinking, too. ;-)

Why not do something useful, look for a cure for paper cuts!
