Call me paranoid but 3 NAT routers from 3 different vendors

Oh, I won't call you paranoid. What I will do is call you "full of shit"

Every time something like this comes up, there's always some idiot posting his improbably ridiculous daydream of an 'ultimate' system that solves all the problems.

What's the point? As an AC, you're not even getting imaginary internet points.

You might impress some other idiots, but anyone with half a clue dismisses these kinds of posts out of hand because we've seen them an endless parade of them.

What, exactly, do you hope to gain by posting this ridiculous crap?

So? I didn't say they didn't exist.

NASCAR accounts for about a billion dollars in profits every year. The people organizing this want to try to replicate that success with drone racing. It's the ever-so-profitable business aspect that they're trying to make happen. Saying that R/C racings exists and some individuals have made money off of it in the past does not change the fact that nobody has made a major spectator sport out of it.

Bullets are cheaper than universal income

They are, but they're also cheap enough that someone who was trying to steal some food might decide to use a few preemptively to make sure you don't get a chance to use yours.

Personally, I'd rather live in a place where people have access to the basic necessities of life and aren't gunning each other down over whatever scraps are left after the 1% have hoarded everything else for themselves.
