To the smell thing-wouldn't you be able to detect it on your clothes? It's like when a girl, wearing her guy's jacket, smells it because it smells like him, right?
Unless you're de-sensitized to that too.....

Hey wow, I was just listening to this while walking home and you started talking about the star trek book, and I walked in the front door, sat down at my computer, managed to find a link to the PDF (nothing ever gets 'deleted' from the internet) and read the first page (still with my earphones in my ears) and now, I'm afraid I'm going to have to finish listening to your show after I've read the book.

But also, thank you. I just got one of those fancy new lo-tech iPads called a Sony e-reader and this will be perfect for it. I haven't even seen the movie, so I guess I'll watch that after reading the book, and then I'll finish listening to your show.

I'm not even a big star trek fan.

Next time I see my grandparents I'm going to try to explain how amazing it is that this sequence of events can occur in such a short time frame thanks to the internet. And my grandfather will probably go 'Bah! That's what libraries are for.' And then he'll mention that he built a library once.

Am I rambling?

Unfortunately, that "taxpayer's receipt" is a little misleading. For example,most defense spending has been left off; the US federal budget spends more on defense than anything else.

Interesting US federal budget trivia fact: the interest payments on the US debt are larger than the US budget deficit; if it weren't for having to pay for the debt, the US could balance the federal budget.
