It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a...tacocopter?

March 27, 2012

The web has been abuzz lately with the possibility of a new form of food delivery service; by miniature, GPS-guided helicopter.

The organization, called Tacocopter, claims it plans to offer direct-to-household delivery of tacos and " all varieties of maize-based foods" to the San Francisco Bay area.

Unfortunately, the entire thing seems to be a hoax. But that hasn't stopped the inspiring popularity of the idea, which now has people calling for modification of FAA regulations to legalize such devices should they one day become viable.

Sorry guys, don't expect a helicpter to be dropping your Barberito's on your front door via parachute any time soon. Still, I remain hopeful that a more streamlined, convenient, and fast delivery system like this could be developed in the future. Got my fingers crossed for pneumatic tubes.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
