i'm tired of normal computing, and i'm tired of government waste

i think my last comparo like this was regarding the National Ignition Facility versus the war spending in Iraq
(you still can't come up with a cooler name than that, by the way)

now, i see that the fastest supercomputer in the world with a demonstrated 1+PetaFLOPS cost only $133M- the Roadrunner

and our "representatives" just approved a $700B suck-off right out of your pocket.


note the M
and note the B
there's something very fucking wrong with that equation...

i'm beginning to understand why academics remain in academia, and tell the real world to fuck off- because it's filled with and ruled by idiots.
