About drones? I’m glad you asked. 1956, the year when the Rattlesnake Patrol of the Boy Scouts of America got involved with drones. Honest, it wasn’t our fault.
Not that we killed anyone with our drone but we did take out an enemy position. OK, so only we saw that barn as the enemy. Not that this was our original intent, but war is like that, collateral damage. Downside being, explain that to your dad.
Model airplanes were quite the rage when I was a kid. Plastic models with all of 1,634 parts to include decals and bomb bay doors that ominously opened. Least that was the original idea, but only if you applied the glue precisely.
Model glue at the time was Testors in a tube that turned the bedroom workshop into an anesthesia mask. A cyanacrylate solvent when applied in excess reshaped what was supposed to be an elevator into something that didn’t move. With dozens of models to my credit, my mom thought I was hooked on model-making, it was probably the glue.
