kim jong-un: Clemkadidlefark: True StoryBest friend's wife works for Lockheed Martin, at the missile factory. 1999, at her Department summer picnic, my pal is down by the lake when he notices a dragonfly following him. Doesn't think much about it, Until he walks back to the picnic and the dragonfly follows him. All day that dragonfly followed him. He mentioned it to spouse and she told him lay off the booze. But ten years later we start seeing these insect sized drone stories.So, if that was 1999, what are they working on now?True Story, I used to work at Lockheed Martin. There are a lot of 'missile factories', no 'the missile factory.'Also, in 1999 there is no way in hell a dragonfly sized drone could pack enough energy to stay aloft for an entire day. If you could pack that much energy into something of that size, you could quit your job, fly your dragonfly around Elon Musk's head for an hour and convince him to give you $50 million dollars just to consult.
I Like Shiny Things: roc6783: I Like Shiny Things: roc6783: grinding_journalist: ***snip***Dammit. I swear I actually did consider saying corps instead of core but thought it would be too obscure and possibly take away from the real facts at hand - that you are a nancy.Lesson learned./do I just say 'shakes tiny fist' or do I have to post one of those cool meme images. Not sure of the proper etiquette here
neversubmit: citizenj: neversubmit: citizenj: neversubmit: citizenj: Thus my nick.Hey Josh, how's it going, you still play battlefield?Nope. Too busy studying for EMC IE and ISMv2.My brain is leaking luns...No more DJ stuff? Anyway my point is that nicks don't provide the safety they once might have btw do you still have that phone number that ends with 2830?That was you? My bad, I'm on a conf call for work. I'll get back to you.DJ'ing 4/4 at Kasai if you wanna come out.No, the nick comment was meant as an Orwellian/THX1138 joke.Citizen J. Just claiming that one now before the gubmint assigns me a different one.Sorry I didn't get the joke. That wasn't me on the phone a brief search of open dbs revealed your phone#, name, job, address, privacy is dead. Be safe everyone.
Cold_Sassy: olddinosaur: My "smart" phone cost me $9.88 at Wal-Mart and I paid in cash. The card was $22.04, so I was out the door for $30 and change.These new phones have a 2--year contract at $1700 MINIMUM, and there are service charges on top of that.They also want an automatic suction pump on your credit card, they get paid whether they deliver service or not.Screw them.i have prepaid and a got a double-minutes tracfone for 10.00 and 400 (800) minutes of time for 80.00 three years ago and haven't paid for a phone since then. The 'smart' phone providers and their contracts are a major-league shakedown.If you don't want to be tracked, take the battery out until you need it.

b2theory: As long as they get warrants they're all good. If they don't, good luck using that or any evidence derived from it in court.
