    If we can use drones to look at things and use drones to kill things, why can't we use drones to dump water on things?

    I get that they're small, but we seem to have tons of them out looking for Afghan warlords.

      Our priorities are backwards.

      look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening. "It's the planet, stupid."

        To be fair, robots are being developed to rescue soldiers and people trapped in buildings.

        But still, I think some smart, creative folks at a distance from the immediate insane work of trying to slow this nuclear trainwreck down need to put their heads together and come up with solutions that are better than evacuate and don't send helicopters.
