They look like little quadracopters!
 
Flying frog

A "flying" frog is a frog that has the ability to achieve gliding flight. That is, it can descend at an angle of less than 45° relative to the horizontal. Other (non-flying) arboreal frogs can also descend vertically, but only at angles greater than 45°, which is referred to as parachuting.

Gliding flight has evolved independently among 3,400 species of frogs from both New World (Hylidae) and Old World (Rhacophoridae) families.This parallel evolution is seen as an adaptation to their life in trees, high above the ground. Characteristics of the Old World species include "enlarged hands and feet, full webbing between all fingers and toes, lateral skin flaps on the arms and legs, and reduced weight per snout-vent length". These morphological changes contribute to the flying frog's aerodynamic abilities.

Alfred Russel Wallace made one of the earliest reports of a flying frog. The species he observed was later described by George Albert Boulenger as Rhacophorus nigropalmatus.

Registering your gayness to be allowed to get register a domain seems like a total failure. Sounds like a Nazi program. The space should be open and unrestricted. Censorship is a bad bad idea.

Yes, First Person View.  It's the new rage in RC (cars, planes, heli's quadracopters, etc.) where you put on googles which allow you to see as if you were in the vehicle!  Combined with long range transmitters and receivers, you can now do some awesome stuff.  I'm dying to try it.

Sure, that would work too. Those flaming chargers in your other post were pretty neat as well.

Story
Introduction
Bio: Ray has founded four companies, and enjoys the technical and business challenges of birthing totally new ideas. He started his first company, The Computer Workshop, with a friend while still in high school. It was featured on EyeWitness news and the New York Times.  As a sophomore at M.I.T., Ray created a project management software package for his father's architectural firm. This project became Ray's second company, Semaphore, Inc. By 1990, it was rated No. 1 in its space by ARCHITECTURE Magazine. Ten years later, Semaphore had more than 2,500 clients and 100 employees. After Semaphore was acquired by Deltek in 2000, Ray moved from New York City to Portland, Oregon, to co-found SnapNames.com. The company invented several new ways for people to acquire domain names, and grew to more than  $49 million in annual revenue by the time it was acquired by Oversee.net in 2007.  Ray's current venture, AboutUs.org, is the world's largest editable index of the Web. The site offers both paid and free services for small business owners looking to drive more traffic to their websites. AboutUs.org serves three million unique visitors per month, and employs 13 people at its Portland office.
