Okay... I actually had an out loud laugh at the "citation needed" ... "and compares it to using police dogs for traffic control, which people would generally frown upon.[citation needed]" 06:25, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

As I said a few weeks ago, this site gets the best "citation needed"s, I swear someone looks for places to put them with the best comedic value. LOL! One of my faves was when there was a "citation needed" on the statement that a baby would be unable to plan and implement a jewel heist. :) There was another good one a couple of weeks ago, where I made the comment, but I forget what. - NiceGuy1 07:57, 26 May 2017 (UTC) I finally signed up!

Got it! 1822, there's a "citation needed" on the statement that 5 million years is longer than the lifespan of a human. :) - NiceGuy1 08:14, 26 May 2017 (UTC) So's this! NiceGuy1 (talk) 06:02, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Oh man, sometimes I'm Black Hat, sometimes I'm Cueball, but somehow Randall is reading my mind three times a week. May the algorithm protect him. (I'm confused: My signature already looks like a bunch of "~~"... Now what?) 08:42, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

EXACT. SAME. HERE. Randall is psychic and does the kind of stuff that is SO AWESOME (or funny) that his fanbase should be 3 times its size. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 11:43, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Damn it, who linked to tvtropes? 17:02, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Proposing a domain-wide feature here: a little popup tooltip that displays a warning everytime you hover your mouse over a tv-tropes link. Something on the lines of "Warning! See 609: Tab Explosion. Hold CTRL while clicking on the link to continue. You have been warned." Actually, make that a standard plugin in every browser. 19:05, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
I added a mouse-over warning text, which works when you use the {{tvtropes}} template. Give it a try! --Nialpxe, 2017. (Arguments welcome)
Also, who says "ineffective" when it has been implemented? I really want to delete that paragraph, but I would like some support. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 18:42, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
I concur. It might be potentially wasteful, but it seems to be working effectively where it has been tried. --Nialpxe, 2017. (Arguments welcome)
This is not about the comic, directly anyway, but it occurred to me that there are hundreds of millions of kilowatt level magnetrons floating around in microwave ovens everywhere. If one of these was coupled to a suitably narrow angle horn antenna, could anybody offer a guess of over what kind of range could this setup fry the electronics in a drone? (!) Just wondering.

The TV show Scorpion did something along those lines, where they found a drug cartel was using drones to smuggle drugs and money back and forth across a border, they jury-rigged a "gun" to zap the drones with something to scramble them and knock them out of the sky. If that's at all realistic, seems far more effective and humane than this eagle thing. (From your description, they might have done exactly that). Now I'm just imagining such secure locations having these "guns" set up as automatic turrets, LOL! - NiceGuy1 21:55, 29 May 2017 (UTC) I finally signed up! This comment is mine.
