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: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
