Rofl, you're kidding right? I'd love to see proof that we couldn't get to the moon, technology doesn't move backwards, especially when it comes to space exploration. Why couldn't we get to the moon when we're landing rovers onto Mars? The distance from the Earth to the Moon is 1/144th (.006%) of the distance Mars. Don't believe everything you read.Originally posted by: 43st
There was a story about the Apollo missions and this effect a couple months ago.. basically we couldn't get to the moon now if we tried, the people that designed all those custom machined parts and solutions are dead now. Not to mention that a lot of the parts were made by small mom and pop machine shops who don't exist anymore.
RE: AIG was screwed the moment they started sucking the government teet. In that sector you're not going to attract top talent without decent bonuses, yet AIG needs top talent to get themselves out of this clusterfck. It's a catch 22. Could lower paid execs get the job done? Maybe, but they have a better chance of becoming solvent with the best talent who know the system. They should have hammered out bonuses and what that will be capped at before giving them the bailout money. But of course this was all part of the plan to pilfer taxpayer money and now Obama has to clean up this mess.
