My blog contains a large number of posts. A few are included in various other publications, or as attached stories and chronicles in my emails; many more are found on loose leaves, while some are written carelessly in margins and blank spaces of my notebooks. Of the last sort most are nonsense, now often unintelligible even when legible, or half-remembered fragments. Enjoy responsibly.

Money, it's a drag

As this is the first month of the year, it’s best to get a good idea of what it is you’ll be working for in the upcoming months. Below is a breakdown of a couple of things in which the American Citizen will be footing the bill. Each one is connected to a link, just in case you find them hard to believe. Have a nice day and remember to work hard this year. We have lots of bills to pay.

700 Million = Cost of sending probe to Pluto

56 Billion = Cost of Federal Budget for Department of Education in 2006 Budget

235 Billion = Cost of operations in Iraq up to now

298 Million = Population of the US

Individual costs per citizen:

Pluto = $2.35 per person

Public Education = $187.92 per person

Iraq = $788.59 per person
