A small insect or a mosquito over your ear may now be much more than simply annoying. Those could easily be micro drones which now come in a swarm of bug-sized flying spies.
In an effort to create a hard-to-detect surveillance drone that will operate with little or no direct human supervision in out of the way and adverse environments, researchers are mimicking nature.
The University of Pennsylvania GRASP Lab showed off a network of 20 nano-quad rotors capable of agile flight, which could swarm and navigate in an environment with obstacles.
This is another step away from bulky heavily armed aerial vehicles or humanoid robots to a much smaller level of tiny remote-control devices. While current drones lack manoeuvrability, can’t hover and move fast enough, these new devices will be able to land precisely and fly off again at speed. One day the military hope they may prove…

Article 1 Section 8, clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution is known as the Commerce Clause and is the subject of this article with respect to the upcoming Obamacare ruling and possible false flags Obama could threaten this year and most certainly in the first year of his second term.

Too be honest if they were quail eggs, well…they might just be hard boiled.
Oh, and we got blasted by a skunk at 4 am. Couldn’t see it but sure could smell it. Running from widow to window to keep the stench out. Pee u.
Wondering if the skunk didn’t get startled by the pigeons?
Grow, grow, growing your corn…. Knee high by 4th of July. Little bit a rain wouldn’t hurt.

White House and Agencies Focus on Space Weather Concerns
“Space weather is a serious matter that can affect human economies around the world,” Tamara Dickinson, a senior policy analyst with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), told attendees at the 2012 Space Weather Enterprise Forum, held 5 June in Washington, D. C. With the 2013 solar maximum nearing, researchers and government agencies are focusing on how the greater solar activity could affect our increasingly technological society and what measures can be taken to help prevent or mitigate any threats to the electricity grid, GPS, and other potentially vulnerable technologies.
