Re: What Can We Do About Drones?!?

I do not know if it is illegal or not but the two nuts tied together with fishing line is an excellent idea. It is also illegal to drive 1 MPH over the speed limit. Once it hits the water I would leave it there. It could be construed as theft if you were to pick it up.

If it came back again, I'd probably fake my own murder as a grand finale. Try to get them to go to the cops and oust themselves as a friggin weirdo that likes to film others with drones.

OMG! This is the way to go! Too funny

Re: What Can We Do About Drones?!?

The idea of staging you own death might work. A concealed soft bosons seat and a fake hangman's noose. The snoop would probably call the authorities thus implicating themselves. Might just be teenagers with nothing better to do? How does the drone's appearance correspond to school hours?

Fornication with sheep. He must be a New Zealander.

Reminds me of the joke. Do you know why New Zealand sheep farmers wear loose fitting high gum boots? It's so they can put the sheep's back legs in them while they are fornicating.

Sorry if I've broken any rules. And very sorry for the sheep in New Zealnd. The country where the men are men and the sheep are nervous.

Negative, I'm American. That's why I said "pretend" and "stuffed sheep"

It's sad that the idea of fornicating with sheep isn't even an original idea thanks to an entire country.

:-) :-) :-) I miss read. I thought you said stuffing sheep.

So in my humble opinion this privacy invading drone operator is happy seeing things. It may not be offensive to him seeing sheep being stuffed by a New Zealander. This drone operator just may like it.

Re: What Can We Do About Drones?!?

When I lived in KW, we had a time where the Conch Tour Train diverted to right in front of a buddy's house... it was regular as a clock. We had a daily nude cocktail party on the front porch just as it came by.... only took two parties for them to re-route... HYMMV depending on how good you look naked!

New Zealanders: Please divert your course 15* to the south to avoid a collision

Americans: Recommend YOU divert course YOUR course 15* to the north to avoid a collision

New Zealanders: Negative you will have to divert course 15* to the south to avoid a collision

Americans: This is the captain of a US navy ship. I say again divert YOUR course

New Zealanders: No I say again Divert your course.

Americans: This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln, the second largest ship in the United States Pacific fleet. We are accompanied by 3 destroyers, 3 cruisers, and numerous support vessels. I demand that you change your course 15* north. I say again that's one five degrees north or countermeasures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship.

New Zealanders: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
