DailyFinance: What's the Weirdest Stuff Your Tax Dollars Get Spent on?

1. Which Video Game Did the U.S. Government NOT Pay to Develop?

Answer: D. In addition to spending $50,000 to develop a slate of games, including Zombie Yoga, the National Endowment of the Arts spent $40,000 developing a Thoreau game -- which an entertainment critic later described as "the most boring idea for a video game ever." Meanwhile, NASA spent $1.5 million on Starlight -- its answer to World of Warcraft.
