    He doesn’t seem to try to hide his floors much. I gotta say, while I’m not a fan of Realestate Agents in general, old mate seems to be pretty genuine. Yeah, he wants to show off a bit. But by the sounds of it, he had it drilled into him that he wasn’t gonna amount to much. I guess that’d make ya want to show them they were wrong.

    My Guidance councillor at school told me I wouldn't amount to much and would be most likely to spend time inside. Well 35 year later I have a great family, managed several businesses, run my own business now and have all the toys I ever wanted and the guidance councillor, well I guess he's still a guidance councillor. Tell me I cant do something and that makes me even more determined to do it.

    When I was a young bloke. 
    A minor incident occurred . my dear, lovely father, who brought up 3 kids on his own and worked a night job and a day job.
    So he"d been around. 

    Said to me,
    "Son, I think you ran over a Chinaman in your previous Life."
    I do believe he was right.

    blame the camera man, well yes

    But, what idiot in his right mind would say, "nothing can go wrong from here"

    that statement would have to be the kiss of death every time

    Do you remember an ABC series called the slap based on the circumstances (like that word?) and aftermath of a slap given to a misbehaving child.
    Here is part 2

    Friends check this out. Found the link on liveleak. It's an oldie but very prophetic (like that word?) about why men are not marrying or engaging with women. From a womans POV. Worth 24 mins of your time

    Folks. For any Sci Fi enthusiasts out there. Came across this channel called DUST. They showcase short Sci Fi movies.
    Take a look at this one. I can post others if you like them. Or just check them out for yourself.

    Actually quite interesting... A good perspective on things that I had never pondered.

    Check out this short Sci Fi video. Very suspenseful. Could be the first in a series, ... I hope.

    1983 Sidecar Grand Prix Bathurst.
    Saw this clip elsewhere, thought it might be worth posting here.
    Don't see sidecars like that very often these days. 1983 doesn't seem that long ago either.

    I have a DJI Spark and that has the follow me function. They are very clever and have collision avoidance and return to home functions. I have had mine  3klm away from me and return by its self
    Well, with a remote area drinking (sometimes called fishing) trip coming up fast, I bit the bullet and got a DJI Mavic Pro. Gonna give it a test flight tomorrow :-) 
    I’m really looking forward to seeing what I can manage to get it to do in a few weeks.

    Good stuff. Best tip.....make sure your return to home is your CURRENT LOCATION. Once you can do that you will never loose your drone unless YOU make an error flying it
