$423,500 Stimulus Program on 'Correct Condom Use' Yields Zero Jobs | The Weekly Standard


The study is complete, and the federal gov't reports that it resulted in 0.00 jobs created.

According to the Weekly Standard, actual findings from the study have not yet posted.

Three cheers for gov't funding of basic research, and for economic stimulus. Boo to the anti-science RWNJs who would oppose this kind of funding and research.

This money was so much better spent than leaving it in the private sector for people to squander on frivolous things such as food, clothing, gas for their car to get to work...

Actually reading over the study, it sounded like one worthy of the grant for the university. Which there is nothing wrong with wanting to study ways to increase the proper use of condoms with heterosexual men.

I don't think you can realistically expect to fix stupid. My condom usage errors are usually the result of copious amounts of Patrón. When I'm sober I can put on a condom blindfolded.

lol, they can't even handle that? Seriously how stupid are people? Obviously, the girls they bed yesterday and the other girl day before and the other girl day before all making baby daddies that they don't support. Yea, since something so simple is so hard we should study why it is so hard to understand.

That answer right there should be worth $150,000 to the administration.
