Pure research is good food
but if the reason is profit
results will be SKEWED.

Paleontologists with the help of pet stores have discovered our oldest living fossil 30 million years older than the the T Rex.
It is the common gar fish that is unchanged after 105 million years.
Who knows we might borrow its anti cancer properties or slow our own evolution.

For the whole story check out the podcast Science Friday.

Final Tom Toles Cartoon dated Oct. 30, 2020. Right center panel fits this topic (and all others are remarkably prescient).

A couple days ago I saw a video on YouTube in which a woman claiming to be the mother of a five-year-old boy who says he's a cat said she was angry because a veterinarian refused to treat him.

I wondered later if the whole thing was artificial intelligence.

The initial way in which AI is having an Impact is the loss of jobs sometimes as much as 90% with a few new jobs called prompt technicians. ie question programmers.

.... Sigh: The "prompt programmers" will be more expensive than the normal programmers they replace, and those vetting the result will be more expensive again. I've just seen the comment:

I'm supposed to be a software engineer. It's just like being a programmer except you do it properly.

In one of the episodes of "Prisoner" the Village rulers are showing off their most recent world beating device, a super computer. Being in the 60s this thing is wall sized with lots of blinkenlights and tapes. The denoument is where The Prisoner is allowed to ask it a question which he does by writing it on a piece of paper and feeding it into a slot. The compute goes mad, lights flash, sparks fly, smoke is emitted,and the new flashy-doodle does the computer equivalent of soiling itself.
The aghast leader says: "What question did you ask it?"

Prisoner smiles one of those self-secure Patrick McGoohan smiles: "Why?"

The Prisoner was ahead of its time possibly by accident.

Fusion doesn't have so many nasty combustion products as fission*. But it does release a skipload of fast neutrons, which tend to do unkind things to the materials of the containment vessel.

* Not just radioactive. Plutonium iirc is chemically evil in its own right.
