Why We Have Not Solved the World’s Problems

Totally off topic today, for a quick observation.

Ever wonder why a civilization that can come up with stuff like the iPad can’t solve problems like world hunger?

It’s because some of our best minds are spending their time coming up with stuff like a bowling robot.

How much time, effort and money went into developing a machine that can simulate any bowler on earth (except for the beer-drinking part)? And why would anyone invent a robot that can play a sport that most humans don’t even participate in anymore? And how will this one-armed behemoth even be able to wear a cool bowling shirt?

And is this really the first step toward a world in which machines controlled by Skynet fly around dropping bowling balls on everyone’s heads?
