Jeez, only $80,000?? Jeez, I could have done the study for $3,000, I didn't need to spend $80,000 for it.

Now, what SEX Maniac wants to know about the sex life of a snail?? I don't...

I could have saved them all of this money. The benefits of snail sex are:

1. Snail satisfaction (assuming your snail partner has any level of skill and is not just a ‘slug’)
2. More snails

A true news agency would be doing FOIA’s on these types. The real story is who actually got that money, and for what.

I read the article and am now an expert on the subject of non sexual reproduction. Cloning oneself as a means of reproduction is a dead end. As is homosexuality, a dead end.

This is a case of ignoring President’s other warning that has been overshadowed by the “military industrial complex” comment. Ike warned of the danger of a “academic/university - governmental researchcomplex” where universities would come to depend greatly (solely) on government grants for research as the primary source of income.
