Hi Evgenii Rudnyi

I have heard it said that every year a certain mathematics
society gets together to celebrate the fact that not one of
their papers has proven to be useful.

Pragmatists on the other hand believe that only the useful is true.

Take your pick.

    Laugh out loud! Such silly narcissistic elitism!

Hi Richard Ruquist

Engineering advantages ? A decade before the Wright brothers flew
their airplane, people would have said, "You're going to do WHAT ?"

I guess this is a very good example, as the Wright brothers have just
done it. I am not sure if they based this innovation on some theory.
Hence is the question, if a superstring theory is really necessary to
drive innovations.
