Deep Siren “tactical paging system.”

Dissent is the highest form of patriotism: No longer

  1. The good side of this whole economical downturn is that its showing how lame democracts, republicans and mainstream economists are while the economists of the austrian school are finally being heard. =)

  2. That RC helicopter/gun thing is absolutely technically possible. I’ve played around with some stuff like that myself (though mostly with heavier camera stuff).

    It’s also completely illegal, per the FCC rules you agree to when you fire up an RC “toy” like that.

    I’m not a lawyer, so I don’t know how enforceable something like that might be. I also don’t particularly care….
