Imagine the drone collisions and fender and wing benders, with MY muy especial order of dog treats landing in some other person's yard!
I cannot imagine how this will work out once there are more than one or two little Fed Ex Google drones buzzing around up there. I've given up on having my very own jet pack, and Google ought to give it up too.

"thinking" and "thoughts" are quite vague in this work, as far as I can tell from the article. If a person doesn't have something to think about - that is, to engage with, then sitting is quite hard. I'd be very interested to know what the participants did in their heads that they called "thinking" or "alone with my thoughts." Our minds are very good at engaging, even engaging in a relaxing or restful phase. But even meditating summons a point of focus. The results do not surprise me. It's hard to learn to shut everything off and just relax. I am guessing that the participants just never learned to entertain themselves in their own heads.

A "super yacht industry"? What the hell is a super yacht industry? No one, not one single person on earth, needs a super yacht.
