When you see a list of municipalities and institutions that are applying for FAA Drone Licenses, you expect to see the Marine Corps, the Navy, etc. Even the DOJ isn’t shocking. Creepy, maybe, but not surprising. Now that the President has decided he can summarily order the drone-strike execution of U.S. citizens without trial, every federal agency is going to want one.
What might be a little more unexpected is the number of Universities that are requesting drone approval.
All of the following schools were culled from a newly released list of 81 FAA Drone license applicants.
So, remember, when you’re choosing a taxpayer-subsidized public university, make sure to enquire about whether they have a federally authorized drone program. You wouldn’t want to wind up at some second rate “learnstitute” that doesn’t have one.
After receiving a four-year degree in “drone studies” you’ll be probably be able to get a job as a government remote-control assassin in no time.

....and yes, we know there are legitimate reasons for schools to want this tech. However, if the proliferation of these machines doesn’t concern you - particularly in light of the Obama administration’s eagerness to use them - you really should start paying more attention.
