  •  Mrs Jack K and I were talking about this drone (6+ / 0-)

    thing just last night, chuckling at the supposition that the drone concept was probably initially some sort of fantasy pitched to the DOD by underlings who were flight simulation game player wannabe's who decided that their personal raw inability to be trusted at the controls of a fabulously expensive piloted aircraft could be trumped by the concept of some geek in a room doing a real-time version of a flightsim game...

    ...I'm pretty sure it didn't really play out that way, but it still is rewarding in this light to see colleges and universities offering education to just this sort of person...
