Berkeley CSUA MOTD
2012/6/26-7/20 [Science/GlobalWarming] UID:54422 Activity:nil
6/26    WW2 brought us antibiotics, syringe, production capacity,
        excessive petroleum, radar, television, atomic energy,
        rocketry (HEIL VON BRAUN), synthetic rubber, microwave,
        computers (GAY TURING), jets.
        What did the Iraq war bring us?
        \_ HMMWV -> Hummer H1 the gas guzzler.
        \_ HMMWV -> Hummer H1 the Gas Guzzler.
        \_ HMMWV -> Hummer H1 The Gas Guzzler and The Cure For The SPS.
        \_ Improved drone technology, ready-to-use tourniquets, language
           translation software, biometric identification, blast-proof
           trucks, improved prosthetics like smart limbs, new treatments
           for shock, and ground robotics. What did Vietnam give us?
           \_ uh, no. Language translation is mastered and refined
              by Google. Military's language translation device is a
              toy by comparison. Biometrics-- try Vegastech, they're
              the ones who really made it usable. If anything,
              Iraq War gave Democrats some control back.
           \_ Vietnam gave us ME LUV U LONG TIME! SUCKY SUCKY!
        \_ You're burying the lede: WW2 gave us the Marshal Plan, a
           strong economy, and preeminence on the world stage. The IW
           gave us a terrorist breeding ground, billions unaccounted
           for, and a dwindling ability to get taken seriously.
           \_ You're kidding me right? No one remembers a frigging
              loan/assistance program. We're talking about concrete
              \_ The Marshal Plan was a loan assistance program in
                 much the same way that your mom was just a cunt:
                 that's one part of the whole, but not the real
