Fun at the NSF
Susan, call girl from the play NO SEX PLEASE WE'RE BRITISH.
Is your NSF grant taking forever to be approved? Does it seem like the grants go to the safest, least-deserving research? In No Sex Please, We're British the blog reported the real-life husband of then-Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, himself already on the public payroll, watching dirty movies at home alone while charging them to the taxpayer. Today we know what NSF is really doing with their time. From the Washington Times:
Porn Surfing Rampant at US Science Foundation
"Employee misconduct investigations, often involving workers accessing pornography from their government computers, grew sixfold last year inside the taxpayer-funded foundation that doles out billions of dollars of scientific research grants, according to budget documents and other records obtained by The Washington Times.
"The problems at the National Science Foundation (NSF) were so pervasive they swamped the agency's inspector general and forced the internal watchdog to cut back on its primary mission of investigating grant fraud and recovering misspent tax dollars.
"For instance, one senior executive spent at least 331 days looking at pornography on his government computer and chatting online with nude or partially clad women without being detected, the records show."
For those receiving NSF grants this is a good time to engage in fraud, because the NSF watchdogs are watching something else. What does this say about the NSF's real opinion of women? If inflatons,cosmic strings and "dark energy" don't exist, is that also fraud?
