I wish they would work on world hunger – the problem would be solved simply and cleverly in about a weeks time.

It is so entirely true – the amount of effort that goes into something like scamming people is just astounding. If we just put 1/10th that brainpower, not to mention effort, into solving things like world hunger and war, it’s be a done deal in no time.
