    Grey River bar in full flood, Greymouth New Zealand, two tough boats bringing in the fish . . .



    — I will never complane at the price of fish again —

    — These fishermen probably need personal attendants with wheelbarrows to help them with their giant balls —

    That's from the video comments . . . :rolleyes:

    The above painting turns out to be in Sir Robin's own house, he talks about it from ± 8.45 to about 10.28 in another great interview....

    Once enabled to crawl into an wall outlet those microdrones can hide and recharge everywhere, provided they use two wires and not one as on the power line at 0:46 in the vid . . .

    While we were in high school, my buddies and I repaired an abandoned lifeboat that came off a ship in Galveston. Even got the old manual bilge pump working. Here we are drifting in Galveston Bay. Did not sail very well as there was not much keel and the lug rig was rather awkward. It had four oars but only two are deployed in this photo.

    If this one works it can already put two legs in an wall outlet for recharge, maybe under or next to your bed . . . :eek:
