Cornholio has a nice ring to it..
Beaming power from a ground station to the aircraft may be a better option and the technology to do this has been kicking around since the seventies. https://youtu.be/7O44WM1Q9H8

Feed it just photos of Mimi Choi and see how it performs.
+1 for the George Carlin reference. His hilarious insight into how language has and continues to be changed is both fascinating & disturbing. For those who have never seen this comic legend here he is talking about how 'Shell Shock' became Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Call me a heretic but I always liked TP's early work 'Strata'
In 1962, the CIA contracted the Xerox company to place a miniature camera inside the photocopier at the Soviet Union's embassy in Washington DC. A team of four Xerox engineers working in secret shoe-horned a modified home movie camera into the machine that triggered the device whenever a copy was made. In 1963, this was installed by a Xerox technician during a regular maintenance visit to the Soviet embassy. On subsequent visits the Xerox man retrieved and replaced the film.
My chemistry is a little oxidised but doesn't the extraction of protein from peas & rice use some rather nasty cancer causing solvents? Anyhow I suppose it must be OK as the ingredients for Huel are remarkably similar to those of the pig feed.
It does have possibilities for international rescue operations.
It's no use shouting tonsillectomy sir, my screen says testicle removal.

Turbocharged?.. seriously the old one was fast enough
If the manufacturer can shut down the rig remotely then what's to stop a government doing the same in a time of civil unrest? Makes you wonder about all those cheap Baofeng handhelds that are so popular in the prepping community.
The script sucks more than a zero-g toilet, there's a serious problem with the gravitas generators and can only assume that the bad CGI is a subliminal ploy to sell Princess Leia bobble head dolls.
But I don't care, loved every minute of it.
It's all a bit 'Mickey Mouse' if you ask me...
Is the games company involved with ZZZ Accounting by any chance?
Interesting factoid the Titanic was about the same size as a 'Typhoon' class submarine. So the mechanics required to make it sink & surface reliably by itself are well understood. Though why they are going to so much trouble is a mystery. Coupled with comments about it being seaworthy (albeit under tow) however is really tweaking my paranoia. An extra bulkhead here, a change to the superstructure there and you have a submersible weapons platform large enough to pop up and launch a few aircraft from. Way cheaper than nuclear powered options, difficult to hit with anti-ship missiles and almost impossible to find when it's sat waiting on the ocean floor. Ideal for maritime defence of scattered outposts in the disputed south china sea theatre.

So let me get this straight...
It's OK to publish a video on YouTube showing how to make high explosives with a bonus masterclass in DIY shaped charges (purely for educational purposes and the removal of tree stumps ;) but if I make a passionate appeal for help in the ongoing struggle of Pirates Vs Ninjas then I get into trouble?
Give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest of men, I will find something in them which will hang him - Cardinal Richelieu
If this had happened in London the nations capitol would probably be walking to work.
Deep down I suspect the winning solution will just be bigger nappies, possibly with a hard suit.
As predicted by the rather good anime series 'Planetes'
Is a SciFi novel by Philip E. High and depending on your viewpoint is either a tale of plucky humans fighting alien invaders or a thinly disguised manual for asymmetric warfare techniques, psychology & booby-traps. Available from all good booksellers including WH Smith.
At the risk of of getting on everybody's watch list is there a breakdown for the type of solid explosives used. Are we talking 'fell off the back of a tank' military grade or anarchists 'stir & count fingers' cookbook?
Malfunctioning robots are the jurisdiction of the the 'Runaway' squad...
Pilot build does seem a likely problem, don't forget there's a lot of female fighter pilots out there.
Orders signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to secret inquiry, lost again, finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters do not come cheap. Instead of our heroic IT specialists defending this great nation against the hordes of cyber pedoterrorists they have been trapped in endless meetings just explaining what the defendant did. Wether or not he actually caused physical harm to the computers or compromised sensitive data is both irrelevant & classified. The man hours alone wasted dealing with this miscreant warrant lengthy incarceration...
of everybody who thought bringing this case to trial was a good idea.

To understand why the top level jobs at a charity organisation pay so well simply replace the word "Charity" with the phrase "Emotional extortion racket" ;)
That's a pretty good idea. Whilst finding lichen or some slime mould on Mars would be incredible it's not something that many people are going to be exited about. On the other hand evidence of a technologically advanced civilisation on Mars would re-ignite the passion for the conquest of space.
I sat through the entire confused & wretched mess and sincerely hope this is the last feature length voyage of this re-boot. IMHO the franchise needs to go back to its roots as a TV series.
Please let there be video footage of this..
I wonder if it was Jayson Street doing a pentest? You may remember him from his DEFCON 19 presentation "Steal Everything, Kill Everyone, Cause Total Financial Ruin!". He does this sort of thing quite a bit. Cheap embroidered polo-shirt, cheesy fake ID and within minutes has the run of the place.
There goes any hope of sneaking an autonomous GPS guided drone in over Area-51 :(

Every bloody eighteen months some whizz kid startup figures out how to turn on an appliance with a cellphone. Now if they could just make an app to chisel the pizza from the bottom of my freezer and get it into the microwave..

Eurpol Press Release
Triffid with a taser, able to charge mobile devices and safe as so long as you keep it docked.
So when will all the cute woodland creatures be protected from the evil wizards radiation? The arched confinement shield been has been under construction for many years now and long overdue.
Make it mandatory for all smart-phones to have a government issued Geofencing app installed. Keeping citizens safe with a warning as they approach areas deemed dangerous.
Wait, what! no ElReg equivalent units for data storage???
German battle tank development during WWII is a good example for those not into Science Fiction. Where designs became more destructively awesome but correspondingly complex to build and unreliable to operate with low production rates.
Mount a taser and the possibilities go way beyond urban pacification.
