When the government gives money to people to study obscure subjects.
Like when they gave a grant of almost a million dollars to study why there is a shortage of poetry in zoos?
Or when someone got a grant for over 175K to study the effects of cocaine on the mating habits of quail?
I have already conducted a prelimary study so that my grant application will have some credibility.
although I am not 100 percent certain...
that people who can roll their tongues...
If you can roll your tongue you probably CANNOT touch your nose with your tongue.
I feel this subject is incredibly relevant to the world today and thus deserving of a government grant.
I'm thinking of applying for $10,000,000.00 to conduct this research.
I will, of course, pay each of you a princely sum to be my field researchers.
Although I have not, technically, applied for the grant yet, you can begin your part of the research now if you have time.
As soon as I get the government grant (I think I am going to insist that they pay me in cash versus a federal check) I will forward a box of cash to you!
This is exciting stuff, isn't it?
Tongue rolling and nose touching being possibly mutually exclusive!!!
