spending on R&D and sciencey stuff is good.

Not because you need to know exactly how a up-quark interacts with a higgs boson, but because the scientists charged and funded to research the matter noticed by chance another interaction between sub-atomic particles that means cold fusion is entirely possible......

Science works like that, strange things noticed from leaving dishes to grow mould over the weekend etc etc etc
