Comment No such thing as work life balance. (Score 1) 513

If you think a 50 50 is balance then you're scammed. Let's ignore the fact that you only have 1 life and it encompasses everything you do it in including work. You'd be hard press to do a life life balance if you don't even have to work. Let alone this bs balance you're sold to.

Back to strategizing the groupthink retraining matrix lol.

But alas, life isn't as simple. That dude who you sacrificed for. Who invented the solar panels? Turns out he became a sex offender serial killer next year. Made an impact alright.

That's why this is such an interesting topic. All those people on their high horse. When faced with mortal danger. Will they stand up to the dudes with box cutters? Or let the planes crash into the towers?

Guys! This is awesome! Now all it takes is for one guy to fly a drone without a camera into "Drone Slayer"'s backyard. Hold hover for a few minutes and let him shoot it down. Then sue.


Of course I know there are people flying without camera for enjoyment but those aren't the ones doing his backyard. The ones who fly it for fun for the joy of flying do it in safe areas, unlike me where a crash could have injured someone: Bad Example.

Fpv has been here for a long time. Why do you think this privacy thing just came out now?

It's the wrong intent that makes the real drone users look bad. My friend uses them to video shoot real estate for sale. And went through the right channels to get permission to hover in a residential area.

There are many fun things that we want to do. But it affects other people's feelings and that's why we don't do them. I would love to hover in people's backyard in fpv too but I don't do it because it invades people backyard. Not even privacy. Just the same as I don't sit on people's porch and have a smoke.

There's a fundamental difference between these so called drones and RC planes or choppers. Drone operators aren't interested in "piloting" . The sole purpose of flying a drone is to take videos or photos and once that's the intention it changes the whole flight.

I used to do aerial photography and video with my RC plane. The flight intention changes once you slap on a camera. Take the go pro off the drones and see how many would still fly it for the pleasure of flight. None.
