Yet universities are not the only ones doing "prime research". Many companies like pharamcudicals are doing their own research and in the field of pharacudicals the simple fact is that universities are doing very little. Another field that companies are doing more research in than universities is geology. Oh and lets not forget electronics. Very few universities are doing much research in either while companies are spending millions in those field. Even in the field of flight there are both companies and NASA that are doing far more than all the universities combined.<quoted text>
What are you blathering about? Why would universities pay engineers? Universities do much of the prime research that companies make money from developing and selling. Prime research is not a guarantee that a profit will be returned. The corporations only use the ones that will make them money. Like the illegals they hired, they let the rest of us pay for their health and education while they exploit their cheaper labor.
I never said that universities invented fracking.
The fact is that there are many fields of study that universities are contribute little to. Of course the real issue is that you cannot admit that there are companies who are involved in research. Companies that are discovering the next life saving drug, developing the next cutting edge processor exploring deeper into the earth. Creating new devices to peer into the human body or deeper into the earth.
As for is "bathering", try looking into the mirror. The face you see will be the one "blathering".
