    You ever got home from work and thought it would be a good night to kick back order a pizza and watch a movie, only to have that cut short by the delivery man saying it could be a hour before they get to you?

    For some that could be a buzz kill but you know if you go frozen digiorno's pizza you will end up with the roof of your mouth full of cuts.

    And like that pizza night is ruined.

    Well if you live in New Zealand you can have domino's deliver your pizzas via drones. So about time you pick out your movie and get comfortable your pie(s) are hovering above your door.

    That's pretty crazy, in a cool-crazy way. Your pizza is lowered from the drone via a tether....rappelling pizzas.

    Just make sure you have a carrier that can make calls in a rural area or no delivery for you. You will just have to settle for roof of mouth cutting digiorno's pizza. Though I'll admit it tastes good but I pay for it every time I eat it.

    Makes shooting a drone down much more worth it...

    That really makes sense PC, but I'm planning to throw out my current working phone and plan and then pay a huge price for phones and plan that the sales person said will work, if it doesn't work I'll post a thread looking for help... ;)
