They can put a man on the moon, but they can't .....yadda, yadda, yadda

What do you think should have already been invented or accomplished that hasn't yet happened?

Here's one to get us started:

They can put a man on the moon, but they cant make a soup can where the lid edges aren't sharp enough to cut someone.

If you want to spend the money, there’s a can opener that cuts around the side of the can, leaving a dull edge that won’t cut you! But where’s the fun in that?

I think I've seen that - the lid has no sharp edges (because it is cut off of the top of the can just below the lid's lip), but I think the top of the now-lidless can is sharp all the way around!

I am thinking that that is worse than the sharp lid.

They put a man on the moon, but they can't make us live for 200 years.

They can put a man on the moon but they can't find a cure for the common cold.

They can put a man on the moon but they can't put a man on Jupiter.

Probably because there’s no solid ground.

They can put a man on the moon, but they can't make a decent laptop hinge that won't break!

Although off topic, I hasten to add that the shortest period of time known to science is not a shake (10^^(-8) seconds), a jiffy (3 x 10^^(-24) seconds), or even a Planck time unit (5.39 x 10^^(-44) seconds). It is the interval of time between the light's turning from red to green and the sounding of the first car horn.

They can put a man on the moon but they cant make a shower curtain that opens and closes without catching on the telescopic joint of the curtain rod.

I liked a t-shirt I saw that read; “They can put a man on the moon, but they can’t put them all there!”

They can put a man on the moon, but not on the sun?

Unless they go at night.

1. They can put a man on the moon, but they can't stop McDonald's (or any other fast food restaurants') workers from asking me, "Would you like cheese with that?" when I ask for a hamburger.

2. They can put a man on the moon, but they can't stop bartenders asking, "Do you want that made with gin or vodka?" when I ask for a martini.

One of these days, when I'm much older and grumpier, I'm going to reply, "If I had wanted cheese with my hamburger, I would have asked for a 'cheeseburger'" and "If I had wanted my martini made with vodka, I would have asked for a 'vodka martini'," respectively. Smile
