As everyone else has commented on the costs, I'm just going to predict a sharp rise in the number of drones for sale that weight 249g

"That's like buying a trophy with someone else's name on it!"
Maybe more like sporting paraphernalia (footballs, shirts, what-have-you) signed by the person who scored the most goals/won/whatever. MVP is "most valuable player" - so the player who contributed the most to the win (most kills, goals, whatever).
I do think it's a ludicrous amount of money to spend on something like that, but then signed memorabilia isn't my thing.

Or manage to ring the doorbell.
I happened to spot a UPS driver heading back to their van from roughly the direction of my house. Raced downstairs, saw the card, opened the door and yelled after them and had a bit of a go for them not ringing the doorbell.
They sauntered over with my parcel, and said they had, and proceeded to demonstrate. By pressing the bit of plastic above the very obvious button. Their smirk disappeared when I pressed the very obvious button to demonstrate how to use a doorbell.
And typing that has just reminded me of another instance where the tracking app said the item had been delivered. No card, nothing in the usual places. I rang them up - got told no one had answered the door so they'd left it in a safe place. Asked what safe place. Under the white car on your drive. There was no white car on our drive, any of the immediate neighbours' drives, or the road. Turned out they'd left it at a completely different house that wasn't that close (in distance or number) to mine.

Chicken flavour(ed)(*) pot noodle has always been suitable for vegetarians - well, at least from the 80s it has been!
(* I can't remember which one denotes it has been artificially flavoured to taste like the real thing, and which denotes it has been flavoured with the real thing. Which is annoying as we were having this discussion at work on Friday)
If I kill myself having an accident whilst riding a motorbike without a lid, assuming I die before the ambulance arrives, surely I'm putting less of a strain on the health service than if I am wearing a lid and have an accident and subsequently need lots of medical attention due to injuries?
(I am deliberately ignoring the effects either may have on friends and family, but I can think of siutuations where dying would place less burden on them than surviving, depending on the personalities of the people involved)
Whiff of hypocrisy?
So, on the Mumsnet thread we have everyone saying that the users should take responsibility for their own machines, and on this thread everyone seems to be saying the OS provider should...
And on other Apple threads we have people berating them for their closed garden approach, and here we have people saying they're not closed enough...
The issue here shouldn't be that bad people do bad things, nor should it be that a company has failed to preventt bad people doing bad things to people who have bought that company's products (I mean would you seriously blame the company you got your windows from if a burglar gained entry and stole things because they smashed one of the windows?), but that a company allegedly tells it staff to avoid the question.
The solution is education, of course.
Actually, maybe they should be paid more attention to
Especially by the various child protection agencies around the world - after all, they are publically declaring they cannot look after their children...although that probably wouldn't result in the parents getting a visit from the authorities asking pointed questions about their claims.
I realise you're probably trolling
Or maybe just being sarcastic, but in case anyone thinks you're actually being serious (or even actually are being serious) you really don't see anything wrong with asking group a (in this case internet cafe owners) to spy on group b (in this case, their customers) and reporting anything that group b is doing that group a think is dodgy?
