In the “What Do They Know That We Don’t?” Department…


DARPA is dropping a half-mil on feasibility studies for an interstellar spaceship.

Half a million is chump change in federal-budget terms, the stuff they pull out from under the seat cushions on Air Force One. So if they were spending, say, a half-trillion instead, that would make me wonder what might be out there and heading our way.

And while I think this is all kinds of cool, in the current environment it’s probably not the best use of public money.

Not that any considerations like that ever matter, of course.

UPDATE: It’s not paranoia if they really are out to get you! Here it is, proof of the massive Earth-destroying asteroid cover-up conspiracy thingy. Or not.
