every problem or confrontation, minor or major, ends with a firearm being pulled.
So it's trespassing to fly something over another person's property but firing a shotgun in the air where the pellets can land who-knows-where but probably onto someone else's property or their person is not?
You mean other than shooting a shotgun in a populated area without concern for others or for their property?
Oh, just for grins, how about following the fucking drone back to its controller. The control signal must be line-of-sight and it has a fairly limited range, that wouldn't be too hard.
I doubt that owning property automatically implies ownership of the airspace above the property. Aircraft are constantly flying above private property but never has that resulted in trespassing charges. Nobody has file a lawsuit against Google for their property appearing in Google Earth. I'm not suggesting that a drone flying above one's house isn't a nuisance but it isn't trespassing nor can one be justified in blasting it out of the sky with a shotgun, irrespective of the danger of firing a gun in populated areas. Further, making assumptions that the drone may be carrying a dangerous payload is simply that, an assumption. Claiming that in a court of law will get you nowhere without evidence.
Manson family but family, still.
Unless I misunderstood the mission, the payload isn't coming back so having a log file for post-mission review is meaningless. If they want to log anomalies, or commands, or telemetry, why aren't they sending it back? Either a continuous stream or regular or on-command bursts. In either case, there still would be no need to retain it in a file, you simply dump the buffer once its be transmitted and start from zero. Am I missing something?
You obviously weren't using these cables. They'll give you the warm, rich sound you've been looking for.
The captain having an affair with a subordinate, let alone a co-worker, my-oh-my. I'd bet what is a really bad idea in the 21st century would still be a bad idea in the 23rd
We've always been at war with the Asteroids!
Don't forget the classic screw-over, Dune. Its sole redeeming feature was that they cast Patrick Stewart as Gurney Halleck.
Ah, but the GOP-controlled congress has only just started its descent into full-on madness. With the teabaggers leading the way, we'll be #1 before summer.

Hell yes. You never know when your plane might veer off-course, break into pieces, and crash onto a weird island where you encounter polar bears. If you're lucky, however, you might find enough weapons to arm a small 3rd world country.
