    Ah yes, the lie of the “average wage” or “average salary”. Someone else who needs to read “How to Lie with Statistics”.

    Depends on the type of drone and camera setup, since some make it very obvious where the camera is pointing, others not so much. In general, not without some technical assistance.

    Drone (noun): an unmanned aircraft or ship guided by remote control or onboard computers. (Merriam-Webster)

    Drone (noun): A remote-controlled pilotless aircraft or missile. (Oxford English)

    A quadcopter is simply a type of drone.

    I like Tom Farrier’s answer about the subject:

    I see it as religion (in a pure form, not the political herd controlling affair it often is) as trying to explain “why”, in the “for what purpose” sense. To many, the answer seems to involve some sort of supernatural being of one form or another.

    Science explains “how”. In the “how does it work” sense.

    It’s probably why some superlative scientists can also be quite religious – because they don’t confuse “why” with “how”. Sadly, it’s probably also why some otherwise seemingly bright people shouldn’t be allowed outside without a keeper.

    Obviously they’re garlic cookies. Clem’s in for a bit of a shock. Do him a world of good.

    The correct answer would be: “That’s a good question. Have a 1 page report on my desk tomorrow for why they don’t do that.”

    Ah, simpsonfan2, must be nice to be (a) a really slow reader and/or (b) never be far from ones library.

    Unfortunately, some of us tend to read fast, and actually leave the house occasionally. I’ve found my e-reader to be invaluable. It’s nice to be able to carry a whole set of books with me just in case I go through the 2 I used to carry with me before these new-fangled gadgets were available.

    I do still enjoy reading “real” books though. Funny enough, I used to consider paperbacks to not be “real books”, being a fan of proper book binders arts. To whit – leather covers, proper stitching, quality paper, and so on. To me, e-readers are a modern equivalent of the paperback. Just something to read, not something that has an intrinsic beauty to it. Darn useful though.
