Science Now This Is a Great Goddamned Idea

I’m glad science spends its time discovering polio vaccines and trying to figure out whether chimps wage war for sexual purposes.
But couldn’t science spare a little more time for things like this?
The unhappier you are, the more ice cream you get.
“Employing voice stress analysis of the userís answers to specific questions, varying degrees of unhappiness are measured and the counteractive quantity of ice cream is dispensed: The more unhappy you are, the more ice cream you need.”
I know, I know. There isn’t enough research money to go around. But maybe we could take a little chunk out of our astronomy budget?
Intelligent people, properly provisioned (and that means ice cream) can think their way into the outer reaches of the universe. Do we really need to build expensive metal tubes to physically hurl them there? That seems kind of primitive and crude.
