@Betajet: The doctor says: "How's your love life?" The man says: "Don't know, I'm 140 miles from home".
That's like the one that goes: "Don't criticize a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes -- at which time you can say what you want because (a) you're a mile away and (b) you're wearing his shoes" :-)
@Max...."...(my mind is going)..." You sound like HAL in 2001. But I can tell you, it gets worse as you get older..... pore over that! (Poor you....you better pour a beer!)
Please let me know the author and if possible the ISBN for that book. I have a book voucher which needs using, and a tame bookshop lady who can get me anything I want, so that sounds like a worthy use for it (the voucher I mean...and also the bookshop lady I suppose :-)
Try getting more exercise -- that's much better than trying to diet. I've heard that dieting alone often causes your digestion to slow down to absorb less food more efficiently, so you're not getting anywhere.
Here's Henny Youngman's take on the topic (from memory):
A man is having trouble with his love life. He goes to see his doctor. The doctor says: "You've got to lose 20 pounds: run 10 miles a day, call me back in two weeks."
Two weeks later the man calls back: "Doc, I've been running 10 miles a day. I've lost 20 pounds. I feel terrific."
The doctor says: "How's your love life?" The man says: "Don't know, I'm 140 miles from home".
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
