Dannelito, how the black adults are supposed to protect and prevent bad things to happen to their children? You cannot change easily the fact that some men are racists and the fact that a black man life is less easy in USA. Trying to be better, working harder and being more cautious is in my point of view a prudent path.
A more revolutionary solution would be gather white and black together in as many activities as possible, trying to be more intelligent and trying go past slavery and racism bad memories but I don't believe the americans would have the will to do it rather that staying alone.

#13 I suppose #9 was catching an occasion for a joke. How to catch a rat? I have some I would like them to go away but the only thing which works is to poison them and them it's awful to see them dying (And let's forget the smell for the hidden ones). Ultrason noises seems not work and they are clever enough to avoid the non-letal trap I have.

#5 : You could have taken all your mice miles away with your car (or by walking a little), they wouldn't be able to come back and they had a second chance to live elsewhere (or they will feed whatever useful predator!). It is what I do with mice, caught by a trap which don't kill them.

+2 4. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 8 years ago on video White student at San Francisco State University hassled because of his dreads

I agree with you Burimi, maybe she only wants a hot debate with him, she doesn't look physically aggressive. He should propose her a gentle kiss to smooth her feelings or alternatively he may answer her that wearing too many clothes and hiding too much her beautiful chocolate and healthy skin are not either in her ancestors's culture!
He should only laugh of what she argued, to my point of view - but maybe I didn't catch well enough the words she used.
He may ask her, if one day she makes babies with a white guy, a white-white guy, let's say a pure Finnish/Swedish/Norwegian guy, could her babies have dreads or not?

+2 6. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 10 years ago on video Car vs. cyclist

@snotraddict: I agree with you. I have rode bicycle a long time and I know it's necessary to slow down in every potentially conflicting situations. Sometimes the other drivers are distracted or overwhelmed by too many simultaneous potentially dangerous situations. In the case of the last crossing and the consequential accident, the driver may have been obliged to take a too quick decision to cross the road.

Something similar happened to me decades ago, the car had to cut my the way, the driver saw me, I saw him, he probably thought he have enough time. Simultaneously, some pedestrian crossing a road in front of him obliged the car to stop in the middle, cutting my way... I crashed on the car! Even I wasn't my fault anyway, I learned then I'd better ride slower to be able to stop anywhere anytime.

Nowadays in every potentially conflicting areas, I take a higher view and a slower ride, I can still ride faster in the places where I am alone. I am also very cautious about the cars' doors, because people often get out their cars without looking before opening their doors! Anticipation is the key word in every situation, your rights are another problem.

@remington: You're wrong, it's completely out of the problem depicted there. A clear bad behavior - not depicted in this short video - from one or two bicycles doesn't gives you rights to make the others pay. Road rage is a kind of psychological illness, in the bikers, the drivers and in the riders. I may go further: you may be less in danger crossing on red lights and riding anywhere if you are much more cautious than the guy who has filmed his rides!!! You have to look, look, everywhere every time, that's the most important thing. The law may come after, if an accident happen, or if a policeman catch you (and he has rights to do so!).
The risks taken by this bicycle make me wonder if this guy has already a kind of road rage. Does the video has been made in a one or two days of riding, or is it in one month of everyday riding?

+1 8. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 10 years ago on video Appearances Experiment

#5: There is a similar law in France:
"Délit de non assistance à personne en danger": Offence for non assistance to endangered people. Means you may be jailed or receive a fine if you don't give help to endangered person.
This law applies also to car accidents were people pass by without giving any help.
It have also been applied in a case of drunk guy dead in a car accident: the barman didn't do anything to stop him on the way to take his car, even it was clear the customer was intoxicated.
So logically this law applies to the situations depicted here in this short movie.

+15 9. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 10 years ago on video Appearances Experiment

An easy film to do. But in reality, we can be very annoyed while trying to help homeless people. To be clear, all this crowd should at least speak to this guy at a safe distance and call an ambulance... It's what I would do but ready to run away if it's a trickery.

The ambulance - or firemen in France - may not come soon because these things happens all the day long in big towns in France (Looks like Paris?). Many, many of these guys drink too much alcohol or take too much drugs and then became very uncomfortable to themselves and with others. Some aren't sick at all but sticky beggars. Other, really sick, taken at hospitals, will shit everywhere, destroy everything to their reach and stole as much drugs as they can.

I must add that nobody will help you if you are attacked on the street and the police may jail you if you manage to respond successfully to a physical attack - some villains are astute... So if you try to help somebody who turn aggressive, you are on your own.

Stay some months in France without any revenue and the state may propose you... Not a work (it would be fantastic!) but a small Welfare and free medical care. People in France are not so bad, only they fear by experience homeless and beggars.

Coca-cola may lost some true haters and racists, but also regain some customers in the vast majority of non-racists and openminded people. I bet the haters are a minority else Coke would have made another choice of advertisement!!! They don't do that kind of campaign without thinking a lot and without extensive testing work, billions of dollars are in stake...
With this in mind, even the haters made a good buzz for Coca-cola, even it's against their will!
See, we all had had a look to this advert and saw who is against.

+6 13. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 10 years ago on video Security kid

Okay, what the kid have done is dangerous. And brave, I totally agree.

But, how can you be sure to stay alive after a robbery?
Who knows, maybe the robber could have shot the both to insure no witness are left behind.
Or even kill one or two by a mishandling of the gun.

So, you may let the bad guys rob everything and still end into a wheelchair or in a grave...

Please don't forget, too, that the money doesn't come from nothing. If you have nothing to sell or too depressed to work again, you may end quickly homeless and too soon dead. Never heard about PTSD? So a "successful" robbery, with no bullets fired, may mean death at the end for the victims and their families. Don't speak about insurances, because insurances soon stop to reimburse for robberies when it happens too often. And a regular robbed shop stop to have any value to anyone, so you may end to have no escape solution.

So I am at the side of the people praising this very brave kid. No, this kid don't watch too many movies, else he wouldn't try anything, the television trains ourselves not to react, reacting is useless when watching a movie. At the contrary, he saw his life was in real danger and done his best to save his life, that's all.

Very interesting!

Thanks for the post, the SR71 is such a piece excellent engineer work and it's clear that level of precise machinery could only be guided by very talented pilots after a long dedicated training. A simple mistake or distraction (Oops! It seems I've transferred too much fuel, after all...) and that's over, for you and anybody in the path of this titanium monster...

I suppose that with today technology, more people could pilot a plane like this one, if assisted by fast computers with delicate softwares as close to perfection as possible.

Maybe a bigger similar "plane" could launch small satellites into space? But at what astonishing costs for creating a more ambitious and bigger JP7 fed monster, if it's ever possible to scale up the SR71?

Americans and Russians have made so many quasi-alien technological monsters!

I liked this movie. Very true. Many people are jealous without having the entire picture. For instance, they would like to be as wealthy as the surgeons are, but forget it means at least ten years of hard studies, and then hard working days trying to save lives, sometimes in vain, alas, and so on.
But... You can also try to make the necessary efforts to get richer. Of course, I agree it's much easier when you come from a loving and wealthy family.
People should appreciate what they already have, ok, but some may also try to earn more by clever and honest work, not magic wishes or magic irrational daydream...

#4: You're right! "The contamination is so severe than the water could not even be clean in an treatment plant" :'( Maybe Americans thinks they have enough space to move to another place in this case. Or maybe they don't have enough space for democratic expression to let people reject fracking. At least, did they really got these 650.000 jobs? Or just one or two new billionaires?

In France, today media says it gave 650.000 jobs to USA citizens. True or false? Who knows?
Implicitly, these french medias let french people think that giving the same authorization in France would give also many jobs in these time of high unemployment levels...
But I do understand it also mean undrinkable water in many places, possible cancer rise because of polluted areas and various other environmental damages, so I would prefer this technology not to be used.

#9: It depends on where it's filmed. In France big cities, clearly no, except in August. Plus in France you'll have to pay, from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. It's very difficult to park ; political leaders choose to discourage car usage by reducing the number of available places. It's also nearly impossible to keep your car undamaged (neglect, jealousy...)

+1 22. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 11 years ago on video Why Are American Health Care Costs So High ?

#9: You said Empire? Where is the American Empire? Are there settlements, slaves, vassal states, colonies? The American "Empire" isn't like French Empire or United Kingdom Empire, the last two Empire are gone but France and United Kingdom still exists, you know. It's the same for Spain and Portugal: they were much bigger three centuries ago but they are still alive now. The last remnants of the Islamic Empire downed a century ago, it's why Turkey is close to be a modern state now, even they are going backward now (tempted to recreate an Islamic Empire?).

To my point of view, America is just currently the best in matters of power (number of units) and advanced technology. Some states may be more advanced, but smaller, some states (China, India) are bigger.

Maybe in twenty years from now, China and India will be more powerful than USA - this doesn't implies that USA will be down neither be in war against China or India or Russia, nobody in these countries is mad enough to go to such a gigantic conflict. (Maybe I'm too optimistic?)

I think USA citizens will be richer with less investments in military stuff and more investments in education and civil research.

#11, etplayer: You know your USA? Do you mean they may refuse to heal you because of lack of money? It's awful and against the Hippocratic Oath ; I know in France they can't refuse you in an hospital speaking about money. And all the medical procedures have a fixed cost... With some adds depending on the doctor/surgeon. Adds may be partly paid by optional insurances. Many doctors don't ask for more money when you are very poor.

+8 23. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 11 years ago on video Why Are American Health Care Costs So High ?

#6: I'm not sure you're right. I've heard the same thing in many places, that old people cost too much at the end of their lives. In France we don't kill old people when they are condemned. Some suffer a lot because doctors continue the treatment even it's desperate. Patient could ask for some help to die (if they are still able to speak or if written before...) but it's a minefield not completely accepted. On the other side, in many cases, we put homeless and old people in hospital because there are no other places for them: this cost a lot for nothing. And hospitals are not pleasant places. If the children stop to pay the retirement house, elders are sent to hospital. If the children forgot completely the elderly, elders forgot to eat, attempt suicide or whatever silly things and they are sent to the hospital while they only in need of human relationship. It's sad. Also many lost their minds before their health and are in need constant care. Do you mean we should kill Alzheimer's? Unemployment cost a lot too: we have million of people ready to work but doing nothing because of the unresolved 2008 financial crisis.

What is leading the USA to bankruptcy is huge spending on military and huge spending on spying other countries. You pay too much for your military planes, you have too much too costly military boats and submarines... On the other side, I do believe the world would be worse without american help. Maybe it could be done for less money. Let's imagine how the world would be if the only great powers were China and Russia... Rogue states would really know what it meant to be defeated, in the ancient times!

I think the must interesting thing the guy said is that American healthcare companies should negotiate BEFORE for fixed-rate prices. It's the key element, because when you in the need of medical help your are not in position to negotiate individually...

#4, #10 (Dmitry): You never read scientific articles, do you?

A very simple research on google give back tons of answers about these publications, like http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

The very first publications, in 1983/1984, may not be easy to find: the Web wasn't available at these old time.

But...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luc_Montagnier
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Gallo

... And en.wikipedia references some of the very first publications!
See there --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Gallo#cite_note-10

So, according to you, the scientific community is wrong for thirty years, after thousands of expensive studies, after millions of deaths (by lack of knowledge) and millions of saved lives (by detection and by medication)

I'm very curious to read your unproven theories and the weird cures you propose.

Thousands are dead refusing to listen to doctors, of AIDS and opportunistic infections, no need of hit man to hide the very sad truth.

#4: Your point of view seems twisted, else there are many many "war criminals", which leads to a lost of meaning. Nazis, Slobodan Miloševi?, many Hutus against Tutsis, had been directly war criminals. But many others solely made wrong or ruthless decisions.
I may agree I would prefer the american governments to give a better support democracy outside their own country rather only a support to the interests of a minority of wealthy people. But I may address the same criticism against many french governments (And some others, when I know closely their political decisions.)

#12: You made me think again. You mean, this time we have two different words/locutions for two different phenomenon. "Avalanche" for big amount of snow sliding (in french), and "glissement de terrain" for land-slide, so english is not better in this example (but still shorter).

Looking in the english dictionary, I see that english is less precise in the case of "avalanche" because this word contains also (in english only) the meaning of "landslide", so you're right, it's clearly not a good example to illustrate my good opinion about english language! Thank you!

I also wanted to underline that #6, gouranga4ever, was misleading because french language do have words for landslide and avalanche.
Picture of ImprsdBySmartVid29 achievements

+6 31. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 11 years ago on video Massive landslide in the French Alps

#6, #7, #10: As a french native speaker, I may say that "landslide" can be traduced in exact french by "glissement de terrain" (terrain == land, glissement == slide, so it's literally "slide of land";). Then you may say "avalanche" to picture a sudden lot of something: "I have tons of work/phone calls" == "J'ai une avalanche de travail/d'appels téléphoniques".
But the main meaning of "avalanche" is for big amounts of snow sliding down a mountain.

I think that english have more words than french, partly because you don't fell guilty borrowing foreigner words. As far as I know, borrowing words begun a long, long time ago in United Kingdom, while ancient french was the kings and queens language, until a french king made an idiot and failed war against them. Then, centuries later, when america was discovered, americans also made a mix with foreign words.

Today, when we traduce an english documentation, it leads to a significantly bigger text in french, we need more words to explain the same things.

@Kendo885: A rapid internet search lead me to think "several million" is a ten times exaggeration. And the vast majority of the deaths are indirect consequences, mainly by the release of islamic terrorism between Sunnis and Shiites. When there was under the bloody dictatorship of Saddam Hussein, only the iraqi police and military could kill people and they do kill Kurds by thousands (182 000 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurdish_people#Iraq). Does the civil wars and islamic empowerment all over the muslim countries like Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Syria and Iran are the USA fault? Does the 70 000 deaths in today war in Syria are the USA - or Russia - fault?

I do think the credo which give an external cause to the permanent civil and religious wars inside muslims people is poisonous "gift" made to them. This wrong "analysis" will only lead to more and more deaths and losses of freedom in muslims countries first, in christian countries then (because the costs of these wars is HUGE), and, on the middle term, to other developed countries like China, when they'll be forced to invade and occupy these damn lands of petrol and Islam.

Zebulon, etplayer: I'm not an american citizen, and probably I'll never be an american citizen. Your country issues about poverty, Wall Street and excessive investments in military stuff are well-known all over the world. But also honest people knows it's also your country, after independence from Britain which made a definitive peace with indians peoples, which build a great country then (industry, cars and planes, big cities with skyscrapers, global enrichment of everyone in your country, ...), which send men to the Moon, which win so many Nobel Prizes, which deliver Europe from nazis and fascist, and maybe also from communists, and the list is to be continued...

I'll never forget how haters like Mohammed Merah in Toulouse (France) kills innocent children and a father in a school less than a year ago. That's a real civilian targeting, that's a act of terrorism. Then that hater repeat "Allah Wakbar" ("God is Great";) a hundred times ad nauseum, and pretend having made something good. That shitty coward killed also some unarmed young military men, a few days before. We have no free circulation of guns in France, but we have killing in schools because of the haters whose ideology is close to most of american haters. And I should recall that many of these haters are jailed by the french police just before the beginning of theirs acts. These haters are many, the war is not close to be ended. Don't hope it will end with the withdrawal from one of their training country, Afghanistan... Don't forget Madrid bombings and London bombings, the end is not close.

These terrorists will attack China soon or later, and China will NEVER withdraw from their countries of origin then. And this will be the end of islamic terror, and the very beginning of a long prosperity era for the world.

French people also has had chemical weapons, starting in Word War I. There are still today some old military dumps in France which are leaking, killing or hurting some guys in caves few years ago, in 1995 and 2005.
French authorities denied this story of chemical weapons leaking, but there are strong presumptions for it, any people living in France for a long time knows there are still scars (military dumps, old battle places not completely cleaned, old bombs forgotten...) of the two Word Wars. It's impossible to clean everything. This is not making France more dangerous than another place in Europe and not every remains of these wars are dangerous, but it's a constant reminder of the sad past.

#9: You're probably globally right but for this case in particular, how can you tell? I've discussed yesterday with a man who owns enough money to stop working and he says he prefer working to keep an activity and contacts with normal people. And this man I encountered is not the only one in this case: I know others like him. They don't look special in any way, they only have enough success making new companies or building houses or they had had an heritage...
In Europe and North America, we can even have fat people who are poor, like they have to much to eat. Things are not like they seems.
I hope this old man do what he does because he loves it. Else, you are right, it's a pity to be an homeless when you get old ; young people should be wise enough to never go older without having the minimum: work hard to get educated, work enough to get an home and to rise children, find real friends to help and to be helped if necessary, have an honest life and try to make the wisest choice of bosses and politicians!

The idea is not bad but it cannot assure a total landmine clearance. A german man invented a kind of tank to do that too: that's what they say to him: it mustn't miss any landmine and this is only possible by human workers. It was tried in a difficult place, in Vietnam if I remember well.
Nevertheless, it's better to clear some landmines than doing nothing.
I think a combination of the german tank and a complete and deep analysis with heavy plows in the sand-ground in these deserts should be tried.

#12: People loose files under Windows sometimes because the hardware is too cheap, sometimes because they mix software from unknown sources, buggy 'optimized' drivers or because bad counseling like modify blindly bits in the registry (like I did on my Windows laptop one time)... Some people buy Windows computers to have the cheapest and easiest solution, cheapest also mean too flimsy.

We still have less virus under MacOS because MacOS users do less skilled and risky things, like installing more and more softwares from suspicious origins, and, like Linuxes, there is only a lesser percentage of users on MacOS. I think at least 9 on 10 desktop users are Windows. So if someone want to develop a malware for MacOS or Linux, it spreads less because the user base is much smaller!
And the closed design of Apple products unease the install of unwanted software, insofar. (And of course makes Apple make more money per consumer, with AppleStore monopoly!)

Of course, for filling the disk with crap, any OS fits, even Linux. Cleaning when there are things to keep is also unpleasant and time-consuming.

...But Android phones, especially the cheapest ones, are easier to fill up than expensive iPhones. For some reasons I don't fully accept, some Android applications refuse to relocate on the SDCard, so my cheap Gingerbread Android phone is not filled up with applications, even I have an 32Gb SDCard. I should root the phone, I know...

To summaries (a bit late!), Apple is expensive but with a better quality in general and no one constrain you to buy it, Microsoft products are less expensive to buy at first but Word/Excel/PowerPoint are nearly unescapable, sometimes even Internet Explorer too is unescapable, and the viruses, too.

I'm an Apple semi addict. I have some of their production. I also have an Android, some Windows, some Linuxes...
But I prefer Apple hardware and software, even I also like freedom of Linux, Android (put your own software in it without paying any license!), Windows...
I never had tricky issues with my Apple products. But, like everyone, I had issues with Windows (virus, data losses, software/documents loss...), and some issues with my Android (permanent lack of space, strange behavior of the phone like it is still experimental... ). I don't speak about technical issues with Linux: it's normal to spend time administering an Linux ; in return, all inside is free of charge, freely modifiable, and so on. But what if you don't want to spend time on computer science? In that cases, Linux and Windows are not so good.

#21: I don't know if they are allowed or not. We do nearly whatever we want on bicycles in France. No stops signs, not taking traffic lights for serious http://www.ladepeche.fr/article/2011/08/11/1144380-a-nantes-les-velos-tournent-a-droite-au-feu-rouge-pas-a-toulouse.html, sometimes no lights on the bikes... Except that everybody knows that it's not allowed to ride a bicycle on highway!
I don't know the laws about riding in the middle, but when a car arrives behind, the cyclists generally goes on the right, even when they are in a group (on sundays, they are many)... The roads are very often too narrow. And of course, the cars open theirs doors or get out a parking lot or change their direction or stop anywhere on the road all the sudden without taking in account the bikes, so riding in the middle or slowly is not a bad idea in cities. Another thing: we nearly never ride on the left ; it's different in Canada, where bicycles can (or must?) ride on the left, to see the cars coming ; I think riding on the left, especially when you are slow, is a good idea.
It's also difficult to keep a bicycle for a long time in France, it's very very often stolen. Or somebody stole the seat, a wheel or show it's stupidness by breaking it. It's much more easier to keep a car (but with scratches very soon).

When somebody give votes to war makers, nazis or islamists or whatever mass killers, for sure you obtain war and destruction all over the world. But as for WW2 preparation, the americans/canadians are quiet, far away behind their missile shield still in construction, for some time.

It's much easier to feed animals around us than to change african human future. If we even master our future of europeans/americans/whatsoever 'rich' countries...

Democracy in America is a myth (ask Michael Moore), islamic law is supposed to be better (an example - without slaves - please?), or communist law is better (no need of examples), or my color skin is the only good one (and americans aren't a racially pure and does the blacks even have a soul?), and CIA dominate the world and impose dictatorship everywhere.

If the car hit his tail, the squirrel may die few hours after. Sad for the squirrel. These cars should be avoided. ;)

#18: Yes, you're right, there is something weird about chaos on the road and authoritarian regimes. Strict rules are observed by nearly everyone on the roads in democratic regimes, maybe every human on the earth regardless to religions and education need some freedom somewhere, in the regime or on the road, and it have to be expressed somewhere?

Great but it lacks windows. I think it should be customized with windows before being solidified.

Not so bad, I would be curious to see the whole thing. Probably the total cost of the film production is one millionth of any movie from Hollywood. Does they have a real special story to tell or is it only action?

It's sad. Pleasure for the elderly could not be reach by any medicine. Publicist would better make us see some elders in a good mood being able to play with the children without being hurt by screams and the speed of the youngers.

Does they ever try to film or record themselves to see and hear if they are good enough?
Or maybe their perception are different than usual persons and they don't see and hear like the others?
I mean, I've recorded myself, I know for sure I mustn't try to to sing on a scene before years of work on my voice!
The audience was very sympathetic, it's very kind, maybe because they know he is going to be rejected, maybe because the leaders inside were good people.

#11 : who are "soldiers for wrong countries" ? Soldiers from democracies? (like USA, Israel, most of european states, Japan...) Or "soldiers" (kind of-) from Talibans and similar idiotic morons? Being weak, love martyrdom, shooting civilians by easiness and loose every war you begun doesn't make you the good guy and not even the God guy, special dedication to Ben Laden and co.!

Whoever you'd like to let alone with theirs wheelchairs, everybody should be taken in care by doctors (Hippocratic Oath and so on : http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A1103798). Of course it's too late for successful suicide bombers I'm so afraid for that.

+3 111. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 14 years ago on video Sensational solar system discovery.

In the old days, because we were unable to find clues about other solar systems with planets, some thought that the life was only on the earth.
Now we know life begun here on the earth 4.3 billions years ago. And the universe is around 15 billions years old. And there are hundred billions of galaxies in our universe, and each galaxy contain hundreds of billions of stars... How could we tell the life exist only on the earth??? Simple probabilities are completely against that idea of life uniquely on the earth!

I don't say we'll find a way to communicate soon with another intelligent form of life somewhere in the universe, because the distances are so huge, and they could be so different than us...

But maybe one day we may understand more how civilizations evolve globally simply by observation with bigger (radio-)telescopes built by our future robots for us at the dark side of the moon...

Yes, the robber was enough smart to avoid killing somebody for money. Because even if he only had a water gun, he may try to knock-down his opponent, this could kill an old man. Money is not worth it. He'd better work at school first, in the real life thereafter.

Why use sharpened swords for such films? With the video resolution we have here, we wouldn't see the difference but nobody would have been hurt. The thing they want to cut could also been cut before the filmed action, so their movie would be near perfect...

-3 117. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 14 years ago on video Buried alive prank

When the pranked doesn't laugh at the end, it's definitively not a good joke. It's a kind of humiliation. He told them it's a big fear for him and that's exactly what they've done, they are not "good friends"!

In this case in particular, awaking someone so badly is not a good idea, he may die because of it or he may never sleep well since that or he may be psyco for a while.

Even if this video could be staged, what's in the show is wrong. Scare me to the same level while I'm sleeping, and you need to be very very good friends (I mean, you had saved my life once a time) or I may "overreact" in ways I should regret... Later. Especially if you are a man as I do. A woman would pay in terms of bad pranks, many bad pranks and many bad words...

If he was chased, or if he had the feeling of being chased, then he couldn't do anything else than going in a relatively straight line. I remember it happened to me. The fear makes strange things to the mind, in many cases we are completely dumb when under a big fear. It takes time to think, and the low-level brain, inherited from very simple animals, has got only simple escape strategies ; being very quick is the main objective.

Well done if it's fake. Else, these things happens in real life with real cops. Their jobs are so boring that they should not even begin drink because if you likes alcohol, it's a big temptation to drink often to forget the boredom.
I agree with #8: it's scary to have somebody with a gun under influence.
Even he is not so aggressive as a cop. But with alcohol it could change quickly for no apparent reason.

Impressive... I suppose the branch was not completely dry, the high-voltage electricity flows through it, making hot enough to set the fire we've seen. And the ionized gas from the fire also conduct electricity like a small lightning, so we have the firework-effect.

Okay these cars maybe were too much used to be useful for anyone in Western Europe (too expensive to repair) but in Madagascar for example they are able to restore such used cars, maybe it cost too much to move these cars there?

But the worst waste to my point of view is the caravan, it could be useful for the poorest without home, we do have many people homeless in Europe...

Great ! Many thanks !

But even I already know some part of this theory, there is still something somewhere which makes me uncomfortable... Does free software writers give really all at no fee? What's about the others, working to feed their families?
I like free software, but does free software is fair, especially when it's better than purchased software?

+5 131. ImprsdBySmartVid commented 14 years ago on video Texas police secretly deploy spy drones.

@shahboys : "... every one would have a tracker ..."

It's already the case, for everyone having a mobile phone!
And your friends are known if you phone them or send them message or to some people close to them, and yours conversations could be recorded, even by private investigators...

It's already the case, when you use a computer. And you can innocently associate your mobile phone number with your main email address...

... Or you are a very well skilled hacker and you use forbidden techniques, but you cannot escape for future drones equipped with facial recognition software ...

Spy drones are another level of surveillance I also dislike. Some years ago, a Swiss had been arrested for marijuana use: a drone had filmed him smoking far away in the mountains. When he went down, the police arrested him and found the prohibited substance...

In Europe, we tend to have more and more automatic radars and automatic detection of forbidden crossing of traffic lights. If you are caught too often, you loose your driving license! (And of course you pay every time you are photographed. Or you fake the car plates ids, it's uneasy and things can go very wrong for you in this case).
In Australia, they have automatic cameras to catch license plate of every one, in particular speeding.

Laws must be softened in some areas, I do think.

Next step for homeland use of drone: armed drones. A small, low cost missile and bank robbers should have an anti missile with them to increase their chances of escape!!!!
