Ran into a Predator pilot on WoW a few weeks ago. Cool guy.

Thanks to technology you now never have to see the face of those you kill, except maybe on a television screen, not unlike video games.

He's right.  We shouldn't be using unmanned drones to kill these mother fuckers.  We should be on the ground killing them in person.  Stops that stupid "they got out while we were waiting for the drone to show up" problem and kills the bastards dead dead dead.

Also, it provides the opportunity to use the ever popular head-on-a-stick warning technique.  It clearly says "stop fucking with us or you'll get your own stick."

Please tell me he was not playing WoW and piloting a Predator at the same time.

Face it Clay, the frontline's been outsourced (it's all about enabling technology now - and money for hardware manufacturers).

Comments in here are enough to cause loss of breakfast:

Clay, you're the stereotypical internet tough guy. Go play with your woodworking toys, or enlist and put your money where your mouth is. Either way, just shut the fuck up.
