back to article Unmanned Aerial Manhood outrage at Kasparov rally

Politicians in Western countries talk a lot about the contribution technology can make to politics, but they're generally on about quite limited ideas like video debates. In Russia, some activists are much more avant garde - seeking to make their (unspecified) point by the use of a remote-controlled flying penis fitted with …

I think i have the same helicopter model they used here, one of the Eflight Blade CX models.

Now I have another mod idea-thanks Russia!

Bad pun intended

The pilot seems to have escaped; I bet he is feeling pretty cocky.

Casparov making a laughing stock of himself

You need to know Russian to do get that one.

The chopper is launched right around the time when Casparov is talking about the necessity to treat all political views and opponents with some level of equality and give them the chance to express themselves.

So the first thing he does after the chopper incident is to snigger at whoever launched it.

Half of the Russian politicians would have laughed it off. In fact Casparov could have used it as a proof of his point and made a proper joke of it. So instead he showed himself to everyone as a sad w**er.

Oh well.. At this rate it does not matter how much money we pour into Russian opposition it will not succeed.

Stay in Sadville

Great, now the retards from Sadville are playing in real-life, too? What do these idiots think is so funny about a flying penis? Is it their pathetic attempt to show the world how big theirs is (when the truth is, I would guess, exactly the opposite)? I imagine these are the same people who think prank/crank phone calls are funny and think the majority of YouTube videos are funny.

Am I just getting ornery? I'm only 30, so I can't say "in my old age"...

I'm dissapointed

that the bodyguards didn't pull out their handguns and open fire on the huge flying cock, which would have made it the coolest youtube clip ever, instead of just standing there looking perplexed for a couple of minutes and then a right hook.

Paris because she shows no hesitation in dealing with this kind of threat.

And we thought flying genitalia was a purely virtual phenomenon...

Black Helicopter because it's the only chopper icon available.

@Casparov making a laughing stock of himself

"how much money we pour into Russian opposition"

1) Who is "we"?

2) And why are "we" doing this?

3) ....without getting appropriate blowback?

No answer needed if "we" == "America".

Insert obligatory "...in Soviet Russia..." Cockocopter joke here.

Detachable Penis.

Didn't the rather good band 'King Missile' write a song a while back called "detachable penis" ?

If so, I guess our erstwhile Russian opposition-leader's just been Missiled.

Way to go Security Guys!

The way they immediately stepped up, evaluated the threat, and swatted it out of the sky. Bet Ballmer's wishing his guys were that good...

Helicockter

Now someone seems to have been playing too much Second Life, and decided to do it in real-life! Or were they just trying to be a d*ck?

Black helicopter, because it would've made a larger err.... "model".

Worrying...

Never mind the cockcopter - there's a worrying amount of people in this thread who appear to have been exposed to second life at some point or other from the sounds of things.

Explain yourselves. Now.

Schrödinger's cat vists Sadville?

Having never been involved with Sadville I immediately thought of a book I read as a teenager, Schrödinger's Cat Trilogy by Robert Anton Wilson. I seem to recall a man gets his genitals removed for a sex change and gets his "helicockter" stuffed and mounted on the wall. It gets stolen at some point and eventually gets thrown at the pope. (I believe it was painted red, white, and blue at the time).

The caution sign because it does appear like it is warning of flying phalluses (or is it flying phalli?)
