Honestly… News Beats Fiction Every Time
News reports indicate an unmanned spy drone belonging to the Mexican government crashed in El Paso Texas today.
US Border Patrol agents found the drone and returned it to Mexican authorities without letting the TSA or whoever probably shoulda looked at it do so. Reports indicate the reason it crashed is unknown.
Seriously? Mexico needs to spy on El Paso by air?
Is this because they just don’t have enough boots on the ground there already? I mean, hell, it’d be damned hard to sneak a Mexican national into El Paso. I’m sure he’d really stand out like a sore thumb in that crowd. That’d be almost as hard as slipping a retired Jewish couple into Florida.
On the bright side, without looking I can probably tell ’em what caused it to crash. If you wind the propeller too many times… it puts way too much stress on the rubber band.
God I love the news.

No more rubber bands on those drones these days, Rob. They were a gift from our government… okay, from us, since our taxes paid for them.
Six of them were delivered a couple of months ago here in Baja California. I have no idea how many in total, though. I’d look up the cost each, but that’d probably just depress me.
So you can at least rest easy that they weren’t a poor man’s version…. they’re the best your money can buy! ;)
Thanks Doc. Always good to know that no matter how boneheaded a foreign government is, we can match ‘em step for step.
Unmanned? That pooey! I’d bet money there were at least 6 people in the trunk of that thing.
I dunno Amanda… they didn’t mention if it was a Chevy or not.
I should be able to “Like” comments on WP. :)
TSA didn’t investigate because they were having fun groping senior citizen’s junk and de-virginizing pre-teens.
Geeze Frank, now you’re making me feel kinda guilty about going thru that line a second time.
