In preparation for the RBS Six Nations Rugby Tournament, the Scottish national rugby team has been using Cyberhawk unmanned helicopters to monitor their practices, and deliver God's-eye-view footage of each scrum. The UAVs are on loan from team sponsor Scottish Hydro, which normally uses the UAVs to inspect pylons and wind turbines.
They players have taken to calling the UAVs "Flying Scotsmen," after Ian Smith, who is tied with Tony Stanger for the team record of most tries (24) in international play.
Armed with UAV technology, Scotland may actually have a chance of winning the Six Nations, despite entering the tournament ranked below every other team except Italy.
Technology, Rugby and calling the English a bunch of wankers.
This has got to be the perfect article.
I concur NOM. They let PopSci web writers get away with anything they want. Great stuff. Just make sure New Scientist doesn't link off of this article. Lots of Englishmen will be bloody angry haha.
I'm English an I think this is hilarious. Wonder how many Americans will understand the term wanker though.
I would hope that anyone with some common sense would be able to figure out what wanker is and what it would = in American vernacular.
Not too difficult. But hey, I am pretty cultured. I watch a lot of Mighty Boosh, Monty Python, and Brass Eye when it was on. haha
On reflection, I have to appologise for my earlier comment.
The perfect article would also have to include beer.
