Stimulus Loot Spent on Sex Studies

Posted by Dave Blount at August 25, 2009 10:22 AM

It looks like the $zillions that were looted from our future in the name of Comrade Obama's transparently phony "stimulus" package might stimulate something after all — although certainly not the economy. Money we obviously don't have to spare will be wasted to:

• Examine "barriers to correct condom use" at Indiana University, at a cost of $221,000.
• Study "hookups" among adolescents at Syracuse University. Study's cost: $219,000.
• Evaluate "drug use as a sex enhancer" in an analysis of "high-risk community sex networks" at the University of Illinois, Chicago. That study will cost $123,000.
• Study how methamphetamine, thought to produce an "insatiable need" for sex among users, "enhances the motivation for female rat sexual behavior." Some $28,000 has been awarded for the University of Maryland at Baltimore study.

They would have just piled up our money in a mound the height of the Empire State Building and set it on fire, but that might cause global warming.
