GeneralGoogle Drone drops "Cherry Ripes" on Oz Farmer Pin

Sydney Morning Herald, Aug. 29, "Google drones tested in Queensland:" by Cameron Atfield:[^]:

"Google X director Astro Teller said Project Wing's goal was ultimately to build a system for delivering small and medium sized packages within minutes to anyone, using self-flying vehicles."

Clearly in a drug-induced manic episode, Astro rushed on to this stunning non-sequitur: "There's no reason we should all have a power drill in our garage when, at any one time, the world is using one hundredth of a per cent of its power drills," he said from the company's headquarters in California."

p.s. I had never heard of "Cherry Ripes" before coming across this story, and I can't explain why the names "Astro Teller," and "Cherry Ripes" suggest something pronish that I would not want to hear about, let alone see.
I have diligently numbered the days of pure and genuine happiness which have fallen to my lot: They amount to 14. Abd-Ar Rahman III, Caliph of Cordoba, circa 950CE.
