Droneaclaws!

"Amazon has unveiled its secret research project which it claims will be the future of home delivery - packages delivered by drones.

The Internet shopping giant’s chief executive Jeff Bezos says that he wants to use octocoptors to replace postmen and cut delivery times to just 30 minutes.

Customers would have their order dropped onto their front lawn by the machine which would fly through the air from a nearby warehouse with it clasped in a metal grabber."

Could I subsequently claim that my package was delivered to a wedding ceremony, where there were hundreds of civilians, none of which had heard of Amazon?

There's no way that they'd get that machine back if I could get my hands on it! :lol:

I see apricot emulsion is back in fashion. Good news & no rush to redecorate the spare bedroom just yet then :D
