Like all of Pittsburg.


Honestly, I'm less concerned about govt/LEO using drones for surveillance than all the private users as they become cheaper and easier to operate. At least if the govt flies one up to my 2nd floor window and sees me fapping to E46 gun threads, I have some hope of holding them accountable. If every teeny bopper in the neighborhood got one for xmas and can fly it wherever and stream live video from it to YouTube, thats a privacy disaster thats harder to rein in, IMHO.

I don't know much about Pittsburg, CA. So sure why not. Practice makes perfect.

Might as well jump on the ship before it sails. How else will I reap the tax dollars I have so graciously handed over to the government?

I highly doubt the government is interested in funding any part of the plastics industry. After all, the hip thing is green renewable engergy, not petroleum based products.
