Then we got somethin' else!!!
We almost built something like this in Texas.
Then they killed the funding and it got turned into a bunch of left turns.
Yep. From Neutrinos to Nascar . . .
I am so proud.
Update: As RBB points out in the comments, the one is not the other. The story was too good to check! Ha!! So partially correct: we started with a sciency super collider and ended up with a Nascar supercollider!!! The money for one was not the money for the other . . . though still . . .
