    Just got buzzed

    By my son's new RC 'copter . He asked for one, and some extended family got him one . Told him if it happens again, I'd go all King Kong on him...

    Extended family get together was last week, since just about everyone but us will be travelling. He was given it last week, but it was defective. They exchanged it, made sure that one worked, and dropped it off yesterday.

    My condolences to you then, and congratulations to your son on the score!

    I love remote-controlled flying things. They irritate the cat.

    Also, you could always call Crackerjab and tell him the R/C salesman touched you.

    I figure he'll break the damn thing within a week. He already dropped the remote and it stopped working. But he fixed it by unscrewing the battery compartment and re-seating the battery. Not sure if that's from watching 'Bob the Builder' or he's got some of his mother's aptitude for electronics.

    If it's not broken in a week, I give it a week and a half before he has the thing fitted with Nerf missile launchers and a laser pointer guidance system.

    My wife made me a Bloody Mary the other night, it was a long time since I had one. Don't know why I waited so long, it was enjoyable.

    They're surprisingly fun once you get the hang of it, so long as the salesmen doesn't touch you.

    Just as long as he doesn't break the remote while the copter is in the air and have it go all rogue on you.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Fit it with a nice video cam and search the neighborhood for things of interest.
