In a speech delivered to the National Academy of Sciences today, President Obama stated that he was setting a goal to devote more than 3% of the country's gross domestic product to scientific research and development. 3% of the GDP is about $420 billion.

I think this is all meant to take place over the course of the next ten years, but, still, I'm into it. We're all going to live for a thousand years, which is awesome, because we're going to want plenty of time to fly around on our personal laser-powered, smile-fueled, robo dragons.
