(Hive) Queen of Wishful Thinking

So fine, this blog had started to drift away from the weird, wonderful, and mind control, but it seems to be getting back more to form of late, lol! You could say this is technology news, combined with some mind control fantasies, I guess.

So, to explain, in Mind Control story terms, Drones are the sort of mindless beings that make obedient robots seem to have empathy. They literally have no thoughts of their own, sometimes they just receive commands from their controllers, or sometimes, like the Borg in Star Trek, all are assimilated to think as one.

For most ordinary folk though, drones are these tiny, flying things that people either use to take location film that would otherwise be tricky to do, other than at great cost, to deliver small packages, or just to annoy people by flying close to them, creating noise in the process.

Anyway, about a week ago, I was sort of watching the breakfast news, while on my laptop, and I heard something about drone creation technology being used in West Yorkshire. I’m sorry, but given I was on a sci-fi site at the time, my mind drifted immediately to the other kind of drone mentioned above.

But no, my hopes that someone in West Yorkshire might consider turning me into a mindless, obedient robot drone only lasted about 2 minutes, before I discovered it was the flying things, and that the local Fire Service were planning to use them in future, especially designed to be able to be used in areas of high heat, namely fires. Ah well…

Then 2 days ago, I saw an article on MSN, that seemingly throughout the world, about 50 of these drone flying things would take off and fly around for a short while before returning to base, seemingly not piloted from the ground. Hive mind drone controller, of the flying kind, hmm? No, the article cast no light on why this was happening.

So I guess I’ll still have to wait to be part of the collective human drone kind, unless said event is warming up to doing that as well, in which case I hope they give me a call, as that is one collective I’d love to be part of.

But for now, it just seems to be the flying drones, but I can wish…?

Which all leads to tonight’s video. A lesser hit from over 30 years ago, that no one but me, and my hive mind collective (I wish!) would remember, or be allowed to remember, probably!
