Well-known TV personality Mike Rowe shared an interesting story on Facebook yesterday.

He was awakened Tuesday morning by the sound of a loud humming noise. Still partially asleep, he jumped from his bed, naked as a baby bird, and threw the drapes aside. He was faced with a camera pointing right at him, hanging from a drone.

Rowe grabbed his shotgun, pumped a round in the chamber and then ran out on his back porch. (All the while still naked.) He took aim at the flying Peeping Tom, but at the last second, he stopped, realizing that what he was doing was very Gary Busey like and lowered his shotgun. He could already see all the headlines that would come from such an event – “Dirty Jobs Guy Strips Down Naked and Shoots Drone From the Sky.”

Instead, Mike took out his phone and shot pictures instead.

      1. You appear to have a fairly limited vocabulary.. But, hang in there Sunshine. Get someone to help you with the big words and before you know it, you’ll be able to form a coherent sentence that includes more than just acronyms or abbreviations.

      2. So.. no friends willing to help with the big words? Or just no friends? I’ve heard that life is hard for the retarded.. I see now what they’ve been saying. Hopefully you’re sterile and too dim to vote. I will say, irritating you has been somewhat entertaining.. but only doing easy-to-do things soon becomes boring. Gotta’ go deal with grownup stuff.. Buh-bye.

      3. I know YOU don’t read it. You’re obviously incapable. But I’d guess there is SOMEONE in your life with an IQ larger than your sock size that reads and explains my posts TO you.. And, I’m growing weary of your continued drivel so I’m going to go talk with the big boys and girls. I wish I had a cookie to give you and a pat on the head before you toddle off to your room so the adults can talk.. But I don’t. By the way, I assume the FU stands for ‘flawed uterus’ … like your mother must have had..? Anyway, go and have as good of a life as a miserable little shit like yourself CAN have.. Buh bye.

      4. Wow. You’re a popular little dumbass, aren’t you? I see your lack of intelligence has led you to another failure with someone entirely other than myself.

        Seeing a pattern yet, dolt? Or is it that you think the last person to post a reply wins? If that’s so, what does that say about our “conversation”? lol High school must be tough for a 20-year-old like yourself.

      5. Hey, dummy! Glad to see you’re still alive. I thought for a minute there that you had forgotten to inhale and died from it.

        I see you still have no arguments either. Well, you’re only a little smarter than I gave you credit for. lol

      6. Oh, I see. Your arguments are “stfu”. Brilliant. You sure you didn’t strain something coming up with that stellar comeback? I’m thinking it was probably right at the extreme of your wit as you use it almost exclusively.

        But, hey. We can only work with what we have, right? lol

      7. You didn’t miss it. Anyone with an ego like yours HAS to read what others write about them. Knowing that, the only conclusion one can come to is that you really have nothing better to come back with than a futile command that proves your insanity – the fact that you continue to give said command expecting a different result than the previous times.

        Son, it’s pretty obvious you’re not exactly the crunchiest chicken nugget in the Happy Meal, but one would think you’d be just a tad brighter than what you exhibit.

      8. Funny… What’s it say about you when the person you call “dummy” intellectually beat you senseless?

        Go ahead. Tell me to stfu again. It’s all you really have, and that’s pathetic.

      9. Oh hey, just made a turn to tell another douchenozzle to stfu , so I thought I’d stop by here to congratulate you on a job well done of stfu.

      10. Oh, you’re still breathing? That’s too bad. I figured you’d dropped dead from general ignorance. Oh well, it’s not a perfect world. Have your family give me a shout when you do finally forget to breath fir the last time. I’ll stop by and pissed on your grave. Thanks!

    1. right by hovering the RC aircraft just a couple feet outside his bedroom window. Next time try reading. I know it’s hard, I’m dyslexic and I read it so I know you can too!

      1. Where else would they hover to get a shot of the house next door dummy? My neighbors had a drone filming their house and of COURSE it hovered by my bedroom, living room, pool etc to get a wide enough angle. Damn you’re stupid. Dyslexia does not seem to be your only handicap.

      2. If they were taking pictures of next door, why the hell was the camera pointed in his window, genius? He saw the red light that signifies it’s powered up and recording, and you can’t see that unless it’s pointed at you, moron.

        Now, tell me to stfu… lol Dumbass.

      3. Ugh you’re such clueless idiot. Cameras have tally lights on both ends stupid. You have to point the drone camera to see where you’re flying if you’re out of visual range. Go Google and learn something today dummy, or better idea, just STFU.

      4. Funny… you edited your comment.

        “Ugh you’re such clueless idiot. Cameras have tally lights on both ends
        stupid. You have to point the drone camera to see where you’re flying if
        you’re out of visual range. Go Google and learn something today dummy,
        or better idea, just STFU.”

        I wish I could say you made some improvement over your original stupidity, but you didn’t. You obviously have no clue about drones and cameras.

        Also, I wonder if you might explain why the drone sped away once Mike presented his shotgun. Sounds like the camera was pointed in a direction capable of seeing that, yes?

        I love it when idiots like yourself fail to see the logic because you think you’re so smart. I think you’d best just stick with STFU, because everything else you say makes you sound even stupider than that does.

      5. Hilarious yes. Didn’t want to confuse you with more facts and new words like “tally light” Also gave it the benefit of the doubt that it might not have been a camera with tally lights on both ends, but you’re still a moron, so I’ll repeat that again.
        Oh here’s another edit dummy: I’d also fly my drone away if someone points a shotgun at it – it’s very obvious for people with half a brain, so I can see why that’s hard for you to understand.
        Oh and another edit Sherlock: stfu.

      6. “Oh here’s another edit dummy: I’d also fly my drone away if someone points a shotgun at it…”

        As would most people. Which begs the question… what makes you think the drone was filming the property next door?

        Oh, right… the fact that you’re a dunce makes you think that. Please explain how a braying dolt like yourself even remembers to breathe. Maybe you just wing it on the hopes you can edit it in when you need it… lol


      7. lol What are you, ten years old? It’s five sentences long. But I do understand. This is you getting out of an awkward situation the only way you know how – lying and denying.

        You’re a liberal, aren’t you? Ha ha!

      8. Thanks for that. There’s nothing more telling than an adversary who cannot form an argument. What it means is, you’re carrying around a buttload of fail. Enjoy!

  1. The article said he was stark naked. Then they said he pulled his phone out….. From where? I would have shot it down…. Ya know… Since he already had his shotgun pulled out….

    1. Ya know, I kinda wondered the same thing about the cell phone. As far as shooting the drone down, that would depend on where you live. In town where they frown on discharging firearms, I guess not. Out in the country though, I would have bagged me a drone. Might have even had it mounted.

  2. He should have blasted it to smithereens! There needs to be laws put in place! It should be a felony to record video, just like it is for a peeping Tom! This is no different!

  3. I’ve had that problem at times also. I build AR’s 10’s and 15’s. I own 80 acres and test fire my firearms a couple of times a week. Soon, I will hear a whirling sound in between firearms and see a drone come waltzing in looking at me. Especially if I’m shooting a select fire for some Police Department. I think it’s funny, and could care less.

  4. Mike Rowe has shown his quality of character by maintaining his self control, and being the first to tell the world the story. I’m impressed. I doubt I would have acted with the same level of restraint and calm. Following the drone back to it’s operator, while naked and packing a shotgun, is probably closer to what I would’ve done…

  5. I have a “Bouvier des Flandres” named Maximilianus (Maxie) that Got Whacked in the Side of the Head by a Pesky Drone. A Natural “3E’s” (Evidence Eradication Engineer), if You EVER Saw One. The Guy Piloting the Drone, DIDN’T Fair Well Either…
