    Perhaps, at some time in the future.

    After all the bugs are worked out, and, I am absolutely convinced some pimple faced teenager in his mother's basement can't "hack" it.....

    (But, don't they have a "standby" REAL pilot, just in case? That would make sense.)

    The beauty of such a system, is, again, for hauling freight and mail. Eventually, they will be able to reduce flight crews, thus increasing the actual NUMBER of flights.

    But, then, they will need more maintenance crews.

    Possibly, but the movie wouldn't have been nearly as good.

    I would. Then I could stop worrying about the pilot being coked up to compensate for being drunk.

    Ah, SO romantic! Sigh! The gently falling rain was an especially nice touch!

    You should go into writing bodice rippers! There's a HUGE market in America for that kind of 'literature'!

    Most American women would MUCH rather READ about romance than actually ENGAGE in romance. It's a Puritan thing, a holdover from the days when any kind of canoodling was considered a perversion.

    I have never followed this kind of reasoning. We could create many, MANY more new jobs by simply banning lawn-mowers, and requiring lawns to be mowed by HAND, with scissors.

    You like to people watch or read National Enquirer as the big part of your day?

    Maybe you like to check out the new flavors of gum huh?
    Those slow checkout lines were a lot more FUN when The Weekly World News was still in publication. All those wacky headlines!!

    I Had Bigfoot's Baby!

    World War II Bomber Found On Moon!

    The Face On Mars Is Trying To Send Us A Message!

    HOW I miss my Weekly World News!

    Plus, it was the one source of science 'info' for all of America's conservatives. Now, they don't get their science info from ANYWHERE!

    Almost all drones are now made in China.
    DJI https://store.dji.com/?clickaid=cAmO...fec871cd52a036 is by far the biggest and best commercial drone company in the world.

    No, that's me. Whenever that happens to me, I start yelling at the guy in front of me. "What, you don't understand that GREEN means GO, buddy?!? Hello??? Earth to stupid driver! Time to wake up! Green means GO!!"
