Lot of money invested in brain research
DHS buying millions of bullets.
Lot of Zombie shows on TV.

Study it out people, study it out.

I'm not sure what to make of this. On the one hand its a step in the right direction, good science but 100 million even if only the initial investment is chump change for the US government. Meanwhile the European's are willing to spend 1 billion euro's on a similar effort.

Then again, you have people biatching over the 100 million price tag as if you should only do great science when times are good.

Is that supposed to be someone shouting "BRAIN" and then hissing like a teakettle?

I'm going long on tin foil, since I'm sure this is going to just encourage the crazies that think Obama is out to develop the tech to read our thoughts remotely, arrest us for thought crime, and then brainwash us into obedience.

meh, considering how his investments in solar power have worked out, I don't think the crazies have anything to fear.

White House announces $100 million in funding to help map the human brain

OK, where's my money.

There it is again. The "Brains" reference to zombies, when the only popular zombies to ever crave brains were the O'Bannon zombies from the Return of the Living Dead. Almost every other zombie story or movie features ghouls that are full-on cannibals and cannot speak (thus they cannot say "Braiiiinnnns!")

Weird that this keeps turning up when the RotLD series isn't the one that made it to popular reference outside of this one thing.

FALSE.  Fartdingo is one of those stinking, evil Libruls, and consequently has nothing in his head but flowers, rainbows and jihad.

Studies have shown that zombies who follow the Romero school of nutrition can be stopped with a single bullet to the brainstem. On the other hand, our exhaustive studies conclusively show that the newer, fitter breed of zombies who adhere to an all-brain diet cannot be subdued by anything short of total incineration.

Half the politics tab is dedicated to pointing out that the White House needs brains.

This is better than spending money on studying why lesbians are fat drunks.

You know, there is already a European brain-study project like this in the works, something like 14 nations are involved, it is very ambitious and may end up on a scale larger than the Higgs Boson search... couldn't we just join their project as a partner?  If the knowledge is going to be shared publicly afterwards anyhow, why not combine efforts?

I'll do it for 10 mil plus 200bil in stock of the fed

The best part is that if we're the first faction to finish this research, we'll get a free bonus technology.

Must suck, to have to accept your party was so incompetent it was beaten by an administration with no brains.

His proposals are not new.
From 1990 to 2000, the US celebrated the Decade of the Brain under the Bushes and Clinton.
Much was accomplished but a heck of a lot more money was pumped into that effort than what Obama proposes.
Here are some links outlining some of the advances.
Enjoy.
