    If they can put a man on the moon ...

    Ok, new game to play. I thought of this as I was driving home last night. Simply complete the phrase, "If they can put a man on the moon ..." with some common problem or situation that you think "they" (!) should have solved by now.

    (ETA: You can respond to a previous poster's question, post a new one, or both.)

    So I'll start with the one that got me thinking about this yesterday ...

    ... why can't they invent an English toffee (buttercrunch) that doesn't stick to your molars?

    If they can put a man on the moon, why can't they find a way for everyone to have tolerance of one another regardless of what they look like, who they worship (or do not worship) & who they love.

    If they could put a man on the Moon back in the 1960’s, why can’t they turn it into a regular tourist travel attraction by 2010?

    I'm pretty sure there's some kind of problem with his hair not being able to leave the Earth's gravitational pull.

    If they could put a man on the moon, why can't they figure out how to upgrade the air traffic control system to eliminate gate holds?

    If they can put a man on the moon, why can't they put some eligible (i.e., straight/not taken) guys in NYC for me???
