6 Reasons Why Drone’s Won’t Work In Texas

Interesting, Technology

1. Look! It’s a UFO! Call the police!

By now almost everybody has heard about “Prime Air“, Amazon’s new delivery service that plans on delivering packages to your front door using drones, right?

Well, not necessarily.

Texas has the nation’s largest rural population, with more than 3.6 million rural residents. According to Connected Texas, 31% of Texas adults don’t have high-speed internet at home and 4% of Texas households even lack the availability.

That being said you can almost guarantee that the amount of phone calls the police are going to receive about flying saucers is almost certainly going to rise!

2. Look! It’s a drone! SHOOT IT DOWN!

Let’s face it, this is Texas. UFO or not, the first thing that Texans are going to do is shoot these things out of the sky. Amazon are about to provide a brand new form of entertainment. Skeet shooting with a random prize…sound’s awesome actually.

3. Texas Weather

If the drone somehow manages to survive gunfire, that doesn’t mean it’s in the clear just yet. If you have ever been to Texas you will know that you can wake up with ice on your car and by lunchtime frying an egg on the hood.

4. The Dallas Cowboys

Thank’s Romo…

5. Running out of Gas

Texas is a big place. 268,820 sq miles to be exact. It’ll take you the better part of 12 hours to drive from one end to the other. These drones don’t stand a chance!

6. Walker, Texas Ranger

Amazon have already picked a fight with the wrong man…

After messing with the lone star state, Amazon better hope their drones don’t start to fail and come crashing out of the sky because Chuck Norris would not have to worry about crashing into the ground, the ground will rise to the occasion.

Not to mention that ‘Right of Way’ rules do not apply when Chuck Norris is flying. If you are flying toward Chuck Norris, you are wrong.
