    @Linus Tech Tips those GPS coordinates are _not_ the LMG HQ. It's a street address off 58th ave. LMG is at 49.0985156,-122.7065713

    @liquidminds I do... xD

    @Pizza PowerXYZ Exactly. A pack of ketchup on your burger is like a cube of sugar in your coffee. Some use none, some use 1 or 2, but if you put the entire pack in your coffee, you'll have a bad time...

    His little awkward pause after saying "clusterduck" xDDDDDDD

  • You actually do have community and emergency managers watching your channel. I'm a volunteer with Kent County Search and Rescue, and while this popped up in my feed since I'm subscribed, it also got posted in our Slack group by our RACES coordinator. I think it's a fantastic idea, and it caught our eye today and might not have if it wasn't for this video.

    @SixOThree i dont care. Its a dumb idea. For the reasons i mentioned. As you live in new orleans you know if you put shit in floodwaters it goes byebye. AND.. nearly anyone with a cell phone ALREADY has internet. This isnt affordable or anything else. For what theyd likely project spending to deploy these in a lousiana flood you could probably buy 500 flat bottom boats or 3000 inflatable boats and just drop them from the sky or hand them out to people to allow them to search for people who need help.

    @cdreid9999 I live in New Orleans. I find your cynicism disappointing and frankly repulsive. This product doesn't have to take the form of a floating duck (very obviously). But it's all you seem to be able to focus on.I appreciate the effort of anyone trying to make simple, scalable, and fault tolerant backup to a system we have seen fail a number of times.I think a great use of these would be for the Cajun Navy (look it up) to leave these behind when they reach an area. Anyone missed in the search...
