Liberty is too important to leave unsecured

Seems like the United States has started flying drone aircraft over domestic airspace. No amount of government tampering with freedom can be too much to keep freedom alive in the land of the free.

In a scene that could have been inspired by the movie Minority Report, one North Carolina county is using a UAV equipped with low-light and infrared cameras to keep watch on its citizens. It’s been dispatched to monitor gatherings of motorcycle riders at the Gaston County fairgrounds from just a few hundred feet in the air–close enough to identify faces–and many more uses, such as the aerial detection of marijuana fields, are planned.

Hooray science!

Inventions

Instead of a normal career, I’m going to invent a product for recovering alcoholics. It’ll be called “Eye Opener.” It’s a coffee whitener but it’ll be flavoured like whiskey or vodka.

Working title

Bookbinding is a dying art. It’s hard on the hands. Nobody does it anymore, save for a few manic depressive monks in the Swiss Alps.

Seriously, if you need to have a book bound, head to Switzerland.

Dear Bushmills Irish Whiskey

I picked up a bottle in honour of St. Patrick’s Day. The label claims to be triple-distilled and you can taste it. There’s over 300 years of experience in that bottle. I’m grateful for that.

Canada is known for its Rye Whiskey, but with the exception of Crown Royal, everything is garbage compared to your smooth taste. Drinking you is like a taste of Irish goodness. All of a sudden I’m transported to a magical green isle and a red-headed beauty named Molly O’Malley is giving me a big Irish hug.

“Aye Fergis, you’re the cutest lad I’ve e’re seen,” Molly says to me while she squishes me with her tiny Irish arms.

“You’re too kind,” I say.

Then we roam the country side in search of four-leafed clovers.

It’s happy isn’t it Bushmills. Thank you for your great beverage.

Yours Truly,

Fergis T. McGillicuddy
