Following my last post I would like to point out that it was put up there as part of this weekends funny collection. It doesn’t negate the principal of the issue but it was not meant to be taken as pure fact. That being said I would like to say in my personal opinion it is a useful way to view the fact that funding does direct what areas are researched.
In response to that I have one final piece to add to this weekends challenge as it is now Sunday evening here in the land of Oz.
I will still be expecting others to participate over the next 24 hours as I do realize that the whole earth/axis/revolving thing means for some of you it is still Saturday.
