Was anyone else waiting for a huge croc to leap out of the water and eat him?

Regulations are hugely important. We should absolutely work, as a society, to prevent preventable death and injury wherever we can. The argument shouldn't be whether we should have regulations, but rather where we place the line that balances the costs of the regulation to the overall benefit to society that the regulations will provide.

But in this case, man, let the guy kill himself. What a way to go out.

If an aircraft is carrying a live human pilot/passenger, it's not a farking drone.

If you fish from the bank, a small drone could put your bait/ lure into a lot more places than a standard cast from shore. If kept high enough, it likely wouldn't scare too many fish either. This is stupid though. Looks fun, but there are a lot more easier ways to catch fish.

Most fisherman aren't big fans of drones anyway.

The way I see it, this is just bringing us closer to finally getting our own personal flying cars. Imagine flying over the traffic jams on the way to work in that.

No way a drone that small will lift a fully grown attention whore.

Yep came for this. There's also a great song about him. IRL, he killed himself after this. The song I about his life. So it starts slow and monotone but after about 1m it picks up and changes
