    Badly built ones, yes. In the case of the Mercury, it was known to have a design flaw prone to failure, which it did.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    When purchasing something, getting the best value for my money is always my first priority, regardless of where the goods were manufactured. If I have a choice between goods which I deem to be of equal value, then I'll buy American if possible.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
