Real Science: Droning On And On

It seems like everybody loves drones.  Looooves 'em.  Well, except maybe some guys in Afghanistan or something.  But drones are becoming the new hot toy--my mother-in-law even offered to buy us a drone!--and people are using them for aerial photography, checking on livestock, harassing the neighbors, and companies are trying to figure out how to use them to make deliveries (just one more job category that would be eliminated--delivery driver!)



I took my youngest to this movie, and he liked it. I wanted to as well because there are some lovely visuals and reams of streaming nostalgia that float around a story desperately wanting to say something important about hope. It just doesn't. The message is sabotaged by a rattling old box car of a plot running on fumes.


(Partial) Movie Review: "Mad Max: Fury Road" 92015)

Mad Max: Fury Road. Owing to circumstances I'd rather not go into, I only got to see about 1/3rd of the movie and then I had to leave. I was never in a position where I could just sort of relax and let the movie I've been waiting for for 15 years absorb me. Hopefully I'll be able to see the full thing while it's still in theaters, but I kinda doubt it.

My review of what I saw, spoiler-free as possible (Meaning I'm not revealing anything important, or that wasn't in the commercials, and I honestly don't know how it ends)
