Edible Drone

Back story here.


Your wish is my demand.

Read the abstract of the scientific paper "Towards Edible Drones for Rescue Missions: Design and Flight of Nutritional Wings," presented last month at the 2022 International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems in Kyoto, Japan.

'The Capture' — Season 2

This high-tech high-gloss high-octane British thriller knocked me back in my chair with the completely unexpected ending of the final episode [6/6] of Season 1.

That's why I was so delighted to learn that there's a Season 2, six episodes on Peacock.

Hold my calls and don't bother knockin' tonight 'cause the first two are going down right here.

The cast is superb, BTW, especially the lead, Holliday Grainger.

If "The Peripheral" is even half as good I'll be chuffed.

Highest possible recommendation.

Lagniappe: unlike Prime and its ilk, which dole out series episodes on a weekly basis, making it impossible to binge-watch like I prefer (2-3 episodes at a sitting) until the final week, Peacock puts them up all at once.

A note on scale: binder clips large & small v cat

The little binder clip (100 for $8.64) is 1/2-inch wide.

The big one ($7.50) is 2 inches wide and 8 inches long and heavy enough to use as a weapon in extremis.

My adorable kitten is named Vanta; she is 5 months old and weighs 6.5 pounds as of her first ever visit to the vet last week.
