I'm so thrilled to know that almost 5 million $ is going for this stupid project.

"$4,840,875 for wood utilization research in 10 states requested by nine representatives and 16 senators. Among the research areas is “refinement of processing technology for laminated veneer lumber for furniture, flooring, and other specialty industries.” As if no one has ever done that before. This research has cost taxpayers $90.8 million since 1985."
