La Marche Futile

Taxes PAY for this stuff? I could've told them this myself.

July 11, 2007 — Scientists have explained mathematically why the famous "silly walks" of Monty Python's John Cleese have never caught on in the long history of Homo sapiens.

The giant, leg-twirling strides of silly walks may enable a person to leap around swiftly but are simply too expensive in metabolic energy compared to conventional locomotion, according to a paper published on Wednesday by Britain's Royal Society.

Governments that spend money on this sort of rot rather than on protecting the freedom and well-being of its citizens... well, I'm thinking they won't be lasting too much longer.
