    could make a drinking game where everyone takes a drink when the Triad hates on government. But then everyone would be drunk half an hour into the podcast.

    I do sense some uneasiness by the Triad on just who has the money in the private sector to fund “NewSpace” or the rise of the corporate space industry. Martin Elvis has a good article on how “NewSpace” needs the government to do, what it did two hundred years ago, for outer space.

    “…After all, space is a small industry….

    …The federal government should play the same role in space in the 21st Century that it played in the development of the American West in the 19th Century: Make the frontier safe for capitalism….”

    Once again, governments have to create industries.

    I tried out this drinking game. My beer went flat and warm as it sat untouched. It was the soberest I’ve ever been during a Weird Things podcast. I actually remember things they discussed. What an odd experience.

    In response to your suggestion that they label things non-GMO: they tried that with milk; does not contain bovine growth hormone; and the milk industry had a fit, finally they were able to label it non-growth hormone if the put a rejoinder that said that growth hormone has not been proven to cause harm or some such thing.
