Unicorn Farts
Harvesting the Moon’s Cheese
The Twilight Zone
Horcruxes
Alien Ant Farms
Spaghetti Trees

And anything else a swamp dwelling and trough swilling scientist can shake a stick at after sampling too much of the chemistry lab. Clearly these are more significant problems than governments could, would or should be dealing with.

Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity…The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present
