(Apparently afterwards he found the drone's owner and apologised - he hadn't thought he'd actually hit it! Now they're organising an event for drone owners to dress their drones up as dragons, and spearmen to compete to shoot them down.)

There's only one thing I can say about this, seeing as I am a grown sensible adult.

SQUEEE!
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

Ulysees — who like his sister is not vaccinated — had scarlet fever and chickenpox, but was aided through medicinal foods and herbs rather than taken to see a doctor.

How would anyone know what this child had if he has not been taken to a doctor? Plus, scarlet fever can have some ugly long-term affects...like kidney disease.

I am also concerned about a 7-year-old who counts to 20 but cannot read or write at all.

Dear Mr SS,

I don't know you, and that's fine. You were parallel parked along a two lane road, which is fine.

However, you don't get to make a u-turn from your parking space, and nearly get hit by me and the three other cars that were within 20 feet of you!

Sincerely,

Me

Apparently Costa Rica has mandatory proof of vaccination for foreigners or you are deported.

They've obviously done their research and are well prepared to begin an independent, self sustaining lice in a country with an unfamiliar language, laws, and customs.  I'm sure they know all about the climate and ecosystems, and what food cross will do well there. ::)

Loving this typo. It seems really appropriate.

I'm wondering how much research they've done at all. Here's a summary of their attitude from TV tropes.

Why does everyone in the city think they can be a farmer? I can barely keep my kitchen herbs alive.

This exactly! My grandfather and great-grandfather on my mom's side were farmers and I spent a lot of summers there. Plowed fields with both a horse and a mule. Fed chickens and shot foxes with bow and arrow. Slopped pigs. It's a LOT of hard work and you have to know what you're doing...

Somehow I don't see these folks fairing too well, especially once the money runs out...
