World Eastern Ontario marijuana growers on high alert for flying Fan-man

Marijuana growers in Eastern Ontario are keeping their eyes peeled this month for a legendary figure who roams the skies every harvest season: the Fan-man.

“The Fan-man is a guy that goes searching in cornfields for marijuana plants,” says a rural property owner, who asked for anonymity for fear of retribution from members of the drug trade.

With a paraglider powered by a fan-like propeller strapped to his back, the Fan-man soars above area cornfields, using a GPS to pin-point places where illegal marijuana grows, he says.

“What he’d do is literally fly real low, looking for these plants. He’s been seen around the area by a lot of people – and there’s most likely more than one.”

The Case of the Mysterious Camel.
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's fan-man!

Because he's the hero Ontario deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a floating guardian. A watchful paraglider. A Drug Knight.

You can change this now in User CP.
Hopefully he's with a government agency or I think fanboy might just fall out of the skies over somebody's field. Even then... this seems kinda dangerous as a one man gig.

    My boyfriend is super into Bethesda modding so I'm probably going to join him in that for a bit, then move on to making mobile/browser games.

    I mostly just want to look at my old projects because I know I posted uploads on here somewhere.

    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches
  • jonas jonas:
    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm currently creating (as a hobby) a space invaders like game for mobile using Xamarin, after starting a few larger projects that I also may not have finished :rolleyes::p

    If I could use something Python compatible it would save me some learning

    But Unity might be easiest

    looking at old posts here makes me happy. Makes me be all like "wow I was pretty smart in 2009"
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.
