  1. Awwww! I love the mini-panels with Drone seated in the classroom and then having his coffee at work! I hope Drone becomes a recurring TTDB character and/or plush toy!

  2. I always thought those Predator drones were a little too soft and fuzzy. A few years at law school should fix that. Of course there’s a chance they’ll start chasing ambulances.

  3. Decimate?  Really?  So, it would take like ten of these drones to actually eliminate a target completely?  That doesn’t seem very efficient.

    1. Common usage has it as more like 90% than 10%; misconception has spawned yet another definition.

      Also, full marks for this one Ruben, text notwithstanding.

    2. The Theban Legian supposedly was decimated until there weren’t ten left.  The word decimation is frequently used as a synonym for the word “annihilate” which the OED lists as meaning “to reduce to non-existence, blot out of existence” .

        1. The story goes that decimation was a means of disciplining the troops; if they retreated against orders or something, supposedly they’d be lined up and every tenth guy had to step forward to be killed.

          1. Actually, they were chosen by lot, then they put sacks over their heads and the other nine beat them to death.
