Don't mess with scientists 
If there's one rule in election-year politics, it's this: Don't mess with the science crowd. OK, labor unions and the NRA matter too, but John McCain may want to brush up on his stars and planets after Tuesday night's debate.

In the debate, McCain portrayed Barack Obama as an excessive spender, and he punctuated his attack (twice) with this example:

"[Obama] voted for nearly a billion dollars in pork barrel earmark projects, including, by the way, $3 million for an overhead projector at a planetarium in Chicago, Illinois. My friends, do we need to spend that kind of money?"

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/ynews_pl78 

...The Adler Planetarium even issued a statement, noting that the request, ironically, was not even funded:


"To clarify, the Adler Planetarium requested federal support -- which was not funded -- to replace the projector in its historic Sky Theater, the first planetarium theater in the Western Hemisphere.... To remain competitive and ensure national security, it is vital that we educate and inspire the next generation of explorers to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math."

Linking a planetarium to national security may be a bit of a stretch, but the point is clear: McCain probably shouldn't count on the "science vote" this year.

I wonder what kind of overhead projector he had in mind at 3 Mio $.

A very large one for 2.5 Mio $ and 500,000 $ of salary for the crowd that changes the foils?

However, before spending 3 Mio for and actual overhead projector I'd buy 234 of these (http://thelongestlistofthelongeststuffatthelongestdomainnameatlonglast.com/expensive223.html) and keep the change.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
