    Drone On! 无人机,走起!作者: Tom O’Donnell   Hello, I’m here to tell you a little bit about the exciting world of commercial drone use.
  When you hear the word “drone,” certain other words inevitably spring to mind—all of them positive: Global! Accuracy! Hearts and minds2)! Futuristic … machines! Wedding celebration!
  It seems like every time you open the paper or accidentally see foreign news broadcast, people are talking about drones. Just Google “drone” and look at the sheer number of results. Don’t actually look at the results; look at the number of results.
  Yes, drones are a certified international phenomenon. (Just like the Beatles!) But as ubiquitous as they are overseas, unmanned aerial vehicles are currently underutilized3) here on the home front. No matter what your business or personal needs are, though, we feel confident that drones are the solution.
  Book Delivery
  You’ve placed your order; now it’s time to step outside onto your lawn. Soon, you hear a high-pitched clicking noise somewhere in the sky, miles above your head. You don’t see anything, but that sound means it’s time to dive out of the way. Now check the crater4) where you were just standing: it’s the new Clive Cussler5)! This is the future of the publishing industry.
  E-book Delivery
  Our drones can also be used to easily drop proprietary6) e-readers on a populace that is generally unwilling to make the switch7). Targets will find it much harder to complain about how e-books “aren’t tactile8) enough” while their roof is pelted9) loudly with hundreds of Kindles.
  Pizza Delivery
  Thirty minutes or less? Try receiving your pizza in thirty seconds or less, courtesy of10) a Joint Direct Attack Munition11) that has been specially modified to shoot pizzas at four thousand miles per hour (this keeps them warm). Don’t forget to thank your deliveryman. Just because he’s sitting at a computer in Arlington, Virginia, doesn’t mean he can’t hear you. He can hear you. He can always hear you.
  Home Security
  Want to know where your kids are? How about your wife? How about your wife’s new boyfriend? How about his wife and kids, who don’t even know anything about any of this? How about his parents in Indiana? Wouldn’t they be pretty disappointed to learn that their only son is making a mockery of the marriage vows he swore before God and man? What if a drone left them a note that explained everything, and we mean everything? Wouldn’t that make your home more secure?   Special Events
  Do you wish there was an easier way to liven up a child’s birthday or bar mitzvah12)? Maybe you should call Droney, the loveable drone with the rad13) attitude! By placing a simple clown nose and a pair of sunglasses onto one of our drones, we can instantly create an adorable character that will delight children of all ages. Your kids will laugh as Droney does loop-de-loops14) or just hovers ominously15) above the party, making strangely little noise. Droney loves to play games, too, like hide-and-seek.
  Pet Care
  Taking your dog outside at all hours of the day is a hassle. Why not let us do the work? Simply attach your pet’s special nylon harness16) to one of our unmanned aerial vehicles and let us “walk” him around the block several hundred times in the same five minutes it would take you to do it once. In terms of sheer mileage17) covered, it’s a no-brainer18). Not recommended for older pets.
  Need a troublesome tooth removed? No problem. Just stand by an open window and smile, fully exposing the tooth that you have clearly marked with a large red X. Do not move your head. Do not stop smiling.
  These are just a few potential applications of drones in the private sector, but the possibilities are limitless. I truly believe that in the next three to five years, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles will revolutionize every aspect of the way we do business. And I’m not just saying that because there are dozens of them silently watching me deliver this presentation from an altitude of six thousand feet!
  I’m smiling but that wasn’t a joke. I need all of you to clap. For the love of God, everyone clap.
  家庭平安   想知道你的孩子们在哪儿吗?想知道你妻子的情况吗?想知道你妻子新男友的情况吗?想知道他的妻子和孩子的情况吗?对于他的婚外情,他们还被蒙在鼓里呢。想知道他住在印第安纳州的父母的情况吗?如果他们知道自己的独子拿他在上帝和众人面前所作的结婚誓言开玩笑,他们会不会很失望?如果派一架无人机给他们留言,把一切都告诉他们,我是说来龙去脉,结果会怎么样?这不是让你家更平安了吗?
