"It wasn’t luck that made them fly; it was hard work and common sense ; they put their whole heart and soul and all their energy into an idea and they had the faith."

Two boys from Ohio were on a race with the nation's top scientist at the Smithsonian to see who would be first to fly an engine propelled aircraft.

The scientist spent $70K of the public's money while working on the project full timem The 2 boys spent $1K of their own savings while working on the project part time.

the boys were first to succeed.

They were the Wright brothers.

Wilbur was 36. Orville was 32.

In the 1984 Olympics the US cycling team got bicycles for $20K each paid for by the US Olympic team. The Swiss team had to buy their own bikes at $1500 each.

The Swiss team beat the US team.

It seems that throwing money at a problem is NOT always, usually?, the best solution or even a good solution, does it?
