I don't know justasurvivor.
At 54 I weigh in at 168 lbs am 5'10", with a slim/semi-athletic body type. I do try to keep in shape now that I'm retired, running about 3 miles 4-5 days a week with some weight lifting in the mix, but always had mainly physical side jobs outside of my career as a firefighter. And I have always eaten whatever I want, whenever I want, modifying my diet when I saw the need to get healthier at times.
When I walked into the fire station in 1983 as a rookie, the guys joked and pointed at my junior captain who was about 44 years old at the time, weighed about 220 lbs, about my same height and had a stockier body with a little bigger than average belly for someone his age, and said, "you'll be that size in about 20 years in the service". I weighed about 145 in senior year at high school, and came out of the academy in excellent shape at roughly 165 lbs. but with a little more lean muscle mass than i do now. I guess I proved them wrong, huh? And we ate extremely well at every single meal.
I think I'm an average guy though. Nothing special. Just trying to stay around as long as I can to see the kids have their kids and enjoy them for as long as I can.

Wow! Your avatar is amazing. I wouldn’t want to be staring up the barrel of a real one!

That had been my nagging thought from the moment they told us the terrorists had on vests. That’s two heck-of-a-shots to get them both in the head. I’m much more relieved with this info release.

What do you mean “again”? And “so called”? That says more about you than it does about Texas, cops, or us.

If not used nefariously, it’s a really cool tool. Sadly, it will be owned by humans, and we know how we are.
Yep. A selfie drone, and peeping tom toy. Still it is pretty cool. Colorado wind gusts would destroy that little thing too.
it weights THREE POUNDS LOL one and half kilograms...
That is a PHAT er FATTTTTT drone.
Runtime in real life will not be impressive.
So does your contention mean we should not develop such technology?
I'm still not getting any responses from you conservatives who are always arguing how govt should stay out of the way of business and that there is too much oversight and regulation and, well... How does that view apply to drone technology???
Do a drone story and most of the responses here are along the order of...
'Thanks for the airborne target'
So with respect to drones... How do some of you conservatives compromise on your distrust for drones (that they will be "used nefariously") - and your distrust for govt oversight and regulation and desire to have the market 'work things out'?
If the market were to 'work this industry out' - we'd be seeing a WHOLE LOT more drones out there already.
Will 'the market' protect you against invasion of privacy issues / concerns (with respect to drone use)? Or is govt oversight and regulation REQUIRED for that?
Already America is lagging behind many other parts of the globe 'integrating' this (and other new) technology - and limiting folks' / businesses' abilities to capitalize from such.
Is it: Free market rules for drones? Or...
(Necessary) govt oversight and regulation?
I can see a lot of filmmakers using this technology for some really cool movie shots.

What an amazing human being he is. I hope I’d be that good of a human if something like that happened to me.

Well, we learned 2 years ao that it looks right side up from the moon.
justasurvivor....I too thought NO WAY,,,,he cannot make it a second time...Well guess what!! He did as we all know and who the hell voted for him? Same people that will vote for Hillbaby...Mindless idiots...addicted to living off the government...people who never have a problem with asking for something free...People who do not work and get everything we work for for free...I could not live that way. I know most of you could not either. But, we must do something to take our Country back. I have no idea what that would be.. Voting does not seem to work anymore...

They were going to admit all this even before the front releases from the book.

Haha! Trust me. We krackas and we every race, color, and creed understand completely! ;)

I am so sorry. I’m especially sorry for his twin. He must be feeling a kind of shock and grief I couldn’t begin to imagine.

He was having trouble breathing. I think they were afraid of further damage or death (and it sounded like that in the account). But I think that’s very true in cases of puncture, etc., where removing the object could cause bleeding out.

Wow! That’s how it was with my Dad. I’ve never heard anyone else say that.
