Not to mention I'd hardly call that thing a drone. Looks like a cheap toy you'd buy at walmart.

Drone is a misnomer; it's used by lazy media and parroted by the public. These are toys. Quadcopter to be exact. But what he's done isn't fake. 'Drones' aren't in the sense of the word drones, they're UAV's. A drone is an unmanned uncontrolled/ minimal controlled, (mainly used for target practice) aircraft..retired and redundant fighter aircraft have been used as drones (things are more sophisticated these days), they simply got released and pointed out over the sea to be shot down by ships testing missiles/ guns or other aircraft.

Drone is more easily remembered by news people as so many of them are drones.

I think it's absolutely real.  And why wouldn't you call it a drone?  Cheap crappy drone, but drone none the less assuming it has been hacked to go autonomous.   I guess it might be called a RC Quad Copter the way he's using it.

It might be called that, because that's what it is. :)

Absolutely.  Little old ladies in India will soon be surveilling drug houses in Detroit and snooping on MV as he cooks Moroccan Beef Kebabs in his back yard.

We do throw a great deal of good food into the trash. I don't mean half eaten food. I mean tons of food that is considered out of date, thought to go bad soon, and manufactured foods that were over produced.
