I need to buy a net gun.  Is buying one from Amazon too ironic?

The people you want to be nudists/exhibitionists are rarely the people who are.

There's somebody for everybody. If you think otherwise, decrease your standards or increase your alcohol intake. You'll find somebody eventually.

This whole concept of drone delivery has to be one of the most ridiculous "ideas" I've ever heard of. I won't even begin to list the HUGE number of things that can go wrong but I'll start with "things falling from the sky" into traffic.

I am a licensed drone pilot (I'm actually one of the first people in my State to earn it after the requirement came out). Drones in the best of hands still fail...and the Amazon ones will presumably be mostly automated (i.e., not flying line-of-site from the controller). It's a big potential problem that no one is really talking about.

uhhh welcome to earth, or have you been here all along but just now crawled out from under a your rock?


Can you guess what the best idea ever to a corporation is?
Any idea that involves removing human labor costs.

Odds are pretty decent that all the insurance and damages costs are still cheaper than paying wages and paying for employment axes and insurance plans.

Fly the thing low enough to not invade my privacy, and it'd be too dangerous. This shiat is dumb. I await the first lawsuit seeking the data on incidentally gathered as part of this "service," and the first lawsuits for damage to property and trespass when a drone fails and fails on private property, and the first jury nullification verdict when someone nets or electronically knocks one of these out of the sky over their real estate. Whatever local government that sucked on the Amazon money spout should be investigated.

Would capturing said drones and parting them out be a viable business venture? Asking for a friend..

Since this is a ceiling cat reference on the topic of drones:

Possibly NSFW if you work at PETA or something.

My guess is the drones will have to follow a flight path directly above public spaces and request "easements" for areas they may need to fly over private property.  I think each county (maybe even city?) has different rules for flying over private property.

My thought after the first year running Bay to Breakers.

We don't talk about problems here. We talk about solutions. Solutions to problems we didn't know we had.

If the net gun is not delivered via delivery drone are you even trying?
