Re: Lord Valve's Site
An exercize in pragmatism: Faced with the need for a writing instrument that would perform in zero gravity, NASA spent nearly a million dollars developing the space pen. The Russians, on the other hand, gave their cosmonauts pencils. Which, BTW, weigh less, too.  
    Ah, but the Russians lost the Cold War, dissolved the Soviet Union, have gone through economic chaos, and are now being supported by the American taxpayers... Hey, I guess you are right about them being smarter than us!
