Didn't the Batmobile get blown up in TDK? Maybe this is a new one and it hasn't been painted yet.

Re: US Drone Fleet full of virus.

I am pretty sure that the great competence on display here is very reassuring to those brown people elsewhere that the drones will not malfunction and that the operators are well-trained competent guys. The only "malfunction" here is in the ground stations, not the drones themselves. Right now the ...

Just HOW tough is Roy? Even with that healing potion, he survived multiple combat rounds of Thog rage fuelled attacks... That's a helluva high consitution/hp!

Re: US Drone Fleet full of virus.

How the fuck are drone terminals not white boxes with their only networking being the uplink to the drone? I'm not sure what you mean by "drone terminals". The GCS is a large suite of systems and computers for controlling the drone which requires data (missions, flight paths, etc) from an external ...

Geeze, it's right on the edge of my brain. I remember seeing this in the Engineering study lounge and thinking "what the hell is this?"- somebody with a British accent delivered the line, a male actor. Whatever it is I'm sure I've never seen it before or since.
