Re: Beware the spy in the sky

Well the article doesn't say they're drones but "spy planes". The difference? Drones are quiet and fly much higher than can be seen. In short you can't shoot it down if you don't know its there.

My guess, since military grade camera's are to be used, it that they're drones. Of course the FAA has made their use legal in the US.

BTW some drones might shoot back!

Also drones may already be in use over major US cities.

Regarding the picture: I'm trying to figure out... is the distressed expression on the cat because he's flying, or because of where they just mounted the tail hook (or whatever that ventral object is)?

There are some very, very strange people in Holland. I must admit, there are some people I know (and a lot of politicians) I'd like to stuff and fly into orbit, but I can't imagine a cat...

Actually, it is illegal there as well:

BTW I remember, as a child, when "sticking your finger in the dike" referred to The Netherlands. Nowadays it has a completely different connotation

Well..I am Dutch on both sides with peps that came over around the time of Abe Lincoln and no one's going to get me to smoke a cat. I might eat an Apple in the back garden and Google can have at it if they want to take some close up flash photos. But I have a few apps that tell me when they get too close so I can always pull my finger and flood the place.

The basic RQ-4A Global Hawk UAV, manufactured for the U.S. Air Force by Northrop-Grumman, is the largest and most advanced drone in the U.S. military, according to the Navy. It is 44 feet long, has a 116-foot wingspan and weighs 25,600 lbs.


Not exactly a toy if it happens to crash near you. I wonder how many backup systems it has?

The vehicles cost $176 million apiece, the Government Accountability Office reported in 2010.


That's ok, we'll pickup the tab.

As usual, one too few.
