This is how I rationalized it when my Mom beat me at Tekken when I was a kid. "Did I win? Which one was I?" Most humiliating experience of gradeschool.

Same here, I just unlocked the Ion Propulsion stuff in career mode yesterday. Put it on a little probe destined for Jool, should get there in a few hundred years.

The sad thing is, I live in Hutchinson and we go to Wichita for fun.

Assume everything goes as planned and you are able to start distributing the vaccine worldwide. Are you concerned you'll meet the same resistance that the Polio Vaccine is meeting in the Middle East and Africa? And if so, what do you think can be done to avoid this?

I think you may have misunderstood my question. By "resistance" I don't mean resistance in the medical sense- I'm referring to people in these regions refusing to take the vaccine, spreading anti-vaccine propaganda, and in some cases attacking and killing workers who are there to give out the vaccine.

These problems seem to stem from a general distrust of western culture and I'm curious if you think it will be a problem for you when you get to the stage where you're ready to distribute it in those regions, and if so what you plan to do about it. It's more of a public relations question than a medical question I suppose.

Thanks for your time! Sorry for the confusion.
