    This is freaky. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was on "60 Minutes" and unveiled Prime Air, which will deliver your order to you in 30 minutes. He says it can be operational in four or five years.

    When I saw the story, I double-checked for the April 1 date.

    I just hope they don't hire former members of the 160th to pilot these things. [/three_bags_full]

    If I was FedEx, the first day that the Drones came online that had really lousy weather, I'd order a bunch of really expensive stuff and hope the drones all were swept to sea.

    If this becomes a thing, I'm buying a crossbow and shooting them out of the sky.

    Jeff Bezos just sent armed drones to your GPS coordinates.

    Part of me thinks this is nothing but a very well done viral marketing campaign.
