You know, that's something that always bothers me about 'blowing up the moon' scenarios. I mean, excluding magic, how much force do people expect to use to influence the tides? I mean, fine, if you blow it to smithereens, half of it falling on Earth and half blowing into outer space that works. But in most cases (when it doesn't magically vanish) it's just broken up. It's still there, it's just not one block but the mass is still (mostly) in place.

But I'm drifting off.
I'll agree I see great potential in drugs. There are all kinds of applications and it seems like it pays well. I don't think it's THE mad scientist occupation but it's got potential.
