This week’s Golden Fleece Award for government waste of your money goes to the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the University of California Irvine for scorching $455,000 of your tax dollars to figure out what people around the world are doing at 7:00 p.m.
Surprise! They discovered that at 7:00 people are pretty much doing what they did last night at 7:00!
But blowing $455,000 wasn’t enough for NSF. So they’re going to toss another $454,866 after it for a follow up study. Absolutely brilliant!
