    I always liked the DC-X design (a non-expert opinion) so I hope they make a go of it.

    Well, as we all know, no crazy rich so-and-so can ever stand the implication that another crazy rich so-and-so has a shinier doohickey, so clearly, the logical course of action is for him to build his doohickey and demonstrate that it is better.
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroesí wings we fly!

    No, no, no. The logical course of action is for him to sabotage the doohickey of the first so-and-so. "If I can't have it, nobody can!"

    And to publicly disparage the other doohickey, of course. It's not just being better, it's about being seen as being better.
