Worst car commercial of all times? Kia hamsters. The robots should have just blown them away. THAT would have been a good car ad!

re: dead feds still getting paid. it isn't the dead people getting paid. It is their decendents, still cashing the checks and never reporting the deaths to the government. If they did, the checks would stop coming, and they wouldn't want that. The US army notices a while ago that its own retirees who moved to the philipenes seemed to live forever.

"... the human intelligence capabilities of the CIA were all but destroyed."

An ongoing idiocy. What tipped it over the edge here was Noriega/Panama, and an ibtesified cry of "we should not pay criminals" for information about criminals. A similar campaign is proposing that no mre medical research should be done by other than computer studies, claiming that we already know all we need to. So why do we still have colds and cancer?
