    Default Common Sense GDG

    Common Sense

    During the heat of the space race in the 1960s, NASA decided it needed a ball point pen to write in the zero gravity confines of its space capsules. After considerable research and development, the Astronaut Pen was developed at a cost of $1 million. The pen worked and also enjoyed some modest success as a novelty item back here on earth. The Soviet Union, when faced with the same problem, used a pencil.

    The Soviet Union is no longer a nation because they couldn’t or weren’t smart enough to develop the pen.

    They're still around. It's just that "stupid" Reagan forced them into national bankruptcy by trying to keep up with us in the arms race...stupid like a fox.

    God save us from the likes of the leadership on the immediate horizon.
