Guys come over here or go to the UK, spend all of that time and effort--and brain-power--in school, obtain the masters and/or doctorate in engineering or physics, and—instead of pooling their knowledge to build up their societies--they pour all of that knowledge into building one of these instruments of murder and destruction.
And, to add insult to injury, the dang thing doesn’t even go off.
