Re: Oh that's just great

Just goes to show what a focused, smart mind can accomplish when tasked with a singular goal.

But honestly, I can't help but feel a bit sad that the same effort wouldn't be better expended on something of more value to society. And to be clear, I am NOT knocking the researchers. I just lament at the number of hours and brain cells that are going to be spent for YEARS on these two issues, with the result being little more than what we already thought we had.
