They can put a man on the moon....

I was watching Brian Regan the other day {hysterical!} and he was saying how people blame things on the men who walked on the moon by saying stuff like "they can put a man on the moon, but they can't...you fill in the blank..."
So, I got to thinking what kind of things I blame on the poor innocent astronauts. And, by the way, I'm obviously no scientist, but why is so much money spent on going to the moon anyway? Is there really much benefit to it??
They can put a man on the moon, but they can't....
... make a quiet lawn mower (because, seriously, they always run them during toddler nap time!)
... make a re-sealable package for bacon (that really bothers me!!)
... provide our country with alternate energy sources for homes, cars, etc (ok, so they've made progress on this, but it's taken forever and it hasn't helped enough people yet so I'm still blaming the astronauts!)
... find Osama!
I'm sure there's more, but I gave myself a vacation day today and that involved any type of thinking! My family has gotten fed all day and that's about the extent of what I've accomplished.

~make a baby monitor that doesn't crackle and sputter
~invent a washer/dryer combo so we don't have to switch loads (how awesome would THAT be?!)
