Helicopter Retrieval Of P-51 RC Model In The Trees

This is pretty cool. A helicopter pilot sees a model airplane crash into a tree top and goes and retrieves it for the modelers on the ground.

Amazing Pictures

LOOK AT THIS  Totally amazing surveillance footage ... a picture with so much resolution that you can scan the crowd for individual facial recognition.  Coupled with face recognition technology this is a step in the direction of total surveillance.

A Litany Of Liars

SEE HERE  Here they are lined up for all to see, a chain of liars lying.  It is time to hold politicians to a higher standard.  When they lie they should be called on it immediately and held to a record so we know.  Perhaps each elected official should have an objective score sheet complete with analysis graphs that give them a rating as to consistency and degree of lying.  It ought to be an objective standard and not muddied with alleged good intentions.  "By their fruits you shall know them," I think is the applicable standard.

Paranoia To The Max — Beyond Science Fiction

  If you're planning a dystopian science fiction novel this lady has a lot of ideas that you could use.  I watched it and it's mostly beyond paranoia to something resembling a kind of insanity ... but she's personally convinced and that's interesting in itself.  Put your tongue deeply in your cheek if you decide to watch.  Government conspiracy theories at the max.

Spitfire Over Germany

A great memoir of WWII recon over Berlin in of all things, a Spitfire. Most people would tell you a Spitfire can't fly that far. This fellow would tell you different.

Hard To Machine Read Text Font — Why Does This Make Sense

This may work for OCR but it won't work at all if you have the codes available since just changing fonts should get you to an intelligible one. It will work perhaps for automated screen shots but since there's no reason to believe that the codes that encode the text don't come across (afterall how can the screen be generated otherwise?) I don't see this as an effective technique.
