WARNING: NEIL DOES TYPOS....
Random Fashion note:
I like to dress up. But I’m sliding into a more comfortable phase of my life. Gaucho recommenced a t-shirt company called Fresh Clean Tees. Love them. Ordered a sample and then enough to wear one a day (I'm not a fan of doing laundry). Thanks, Gaucho. You are my only hope. . .
I was watching half watching YouTube this morning and I saw a video about a guy who’s company does elaborate drone displays. I’ve seen them before during football halftime shows and maybe a concert. You know, a swarm of drones makes pictures in the air, they flash colors and act as one.
I don’t know why but this morning that gave me goosebumps. Not the good kind.
We’ve already been hearing stories about FBI raids going haywire ([ https://www.defenseone.com/technology/2018/05/criminal-gang-used-drone-swarm-obstruct-fbi-raid/147956/ ]) because the crooks they’re trying to nab have drones at their disposal. The bad guys use drones like we would, to keep an eye out for the authorities and thwart their efforts whenever possible. And that’s just a couple at a time.
Now, imagine a swarm of the winged beasts.
I think we’re way behind on defending against this sort of thing.
Cal once told me that one of his greatest fears for a Marine infantry squad/platoon is drones. How do Marines defend against them?
Again, something to think on. Maybe I’ll do some tinkering tonight.
Your always-thinking buddy,
