"I'm not sure roads and rivers move around often enough to warrant 24/7 surveillance especially once you already mapped them"
Doing some navigation practice with OS maps recently. My mate had a 2011 map, and I had a 2016 map. A surprising number of boundary marks had moved or were totally gone which made it much more challenging for him. Mountains and rivers don't move much, but they don't only map mountains and rivers (they also have pubs marked!)
I am wondering if there is a drone (or a few) that is landing when the airport is closed, but has a pilot using a radio to listen to air traffic control. As soon as they are going to reopen the airport they send a drone up and make is visible. A few drones and you could cause mayhem for hours, and not have to worry about battery issues.

Re: Well done students...
None of the ones I ever signed as a student (or since) included any clauses that would cover this.
Also just because you break the agreement it doesn't mean the landlord can say "pack your bags". They have to issue a section 21 (basically we want you out), go to court and have a judge agree (they are the only people that can say you HAVE to go) and get county court bailiffs (only people that can throw you out). Looking at a good 7 or 8 months for the full process. Same rules apply if you don't pay rent or break any other clause, if they don't have the specific clause in the contract the judge might not even agree with them. One of the good things about the UK is the protection tenants have.

FFS does this guy think the GitHub people are just sat there thinking "oh well, we could get it working by pressing Enter... But hey let's wait a while until someone asks. We get it all the time when something is down "Can't you just get it back up?!"... Oh that is what we are supposed to be doing. fsck off

Well fortunately we are moving forward all the time to make equality a thing. However there is still a way to go. This is more about a time and a place for such things. No one is trying to ban people not wearing very much dancing, but this is not the time for it. It might have been a few years ago but we have since progressed passed that (although no where near as far as we should have, i.e. women having to wear heals in work, in some places)
As you have your eyes open, try looking forward, things that were okay even a few years ago, are not okay now, it is called progression. Think of it as v2017.11 of software if you shall, better than v1960.10 but not as good as v2020.01
On a second note: "However, move along now, I've seen behind your curtain too many times to alert to the wolf cry."... wtf are you even talking about?!
Re: three or four years of sex, booze and drugs...
Thank you! All of the sex, booze and drugs made for a really a fun 4 years.
Now lets talk about why you keep taking money out of my pay slip every month? What is all that about, I thought people like you paid for it?! What you didn't have to pay for your degree at all? I guess it is actually people like me that are not paying for yours too.
