Did you realize that "US spending on science, space, and technology correlates with suicides by hanging, strangulation and suffocation"? Doubtless you have indeed thought so, as had I, but we now have proof that spending on sciency stuff chokes out other things. Sort of takes your breath away, doesn't it? We smother under the pall of science and its partners in crime -- space and technology!

There are many more of these 'curious' correlations here. Hat-tip to Malcolm Pollack . . .
