Let me explain. Suppose I wanted to make the argument that we need more nuclear weapons. Sounds absolutely crazy, but based on some theories (I dont agree with) the more strength you have to more peace you will have.

Can someone give me an example of anything else related to physics/astrophysics/weapons/energy that it sounds CRAZY to say we need more of, but its essential that we have more?

Love without Physics is pointless. Physics without love is just cruelty to cats.

Chaos, randomness.

Scotty, we need more power! Computationally, that is.

One can never have too many cores.


And more women in science, engineering, technology and management.

We need more jobs, less multi-billion dollar particle physics experiments.

Well, if we want free gluons, we'll have to pay for them. Free gluons ain't free.
