Re: The most expensive dick swinging contest in history

"Vietnam cost 516% as much as the full Apollo project."

Oh yeah, but look at all the great music we got out of it: "... I ain't no fortunate son!", "Four dead in Ohio", "Where have all the flowers gone?", "We gotta get outa this place, if it's the last thing we ever do".

And the movies: "I love the smell of napalm in the morning. [...] It smells like ... victory!"

Totally worth it.
