The folks at the National Science Foundation is at it again.  Here’s a few new ways they’ve figured out how to waste OUR money:

$80,000 study on why the same teams always dominate March Madness

$315,000 study suggesting playing FarmVille on Facebook helps adults develop and maintain relationships

$1 million for an analysis of how quickly parents respond to trendy baby names

$581,000 on whether online dating site users are racist

Now, doesn’t this make you all warm and fuzzy knowing your money is going for worthwhile causes?
