I would have used a "Rocketeer" example rather than "Thunderball" but, if I'm being honest, that's only because of Jennifer Connelly.

I don't know, Cash. They cut the video up. He was only aloft for 13 seconds. Even if it is true, it takes me 20 minutes to get to work at 75 miles an hour... I guess I have to keep waiting. LOL

I've watched the "jet-packs" and always wondered why the backs of the users legs aren't burnt crisp.

Why not encapsulate a light chair and use 3 larger propelers? Two on each side and one on the back of the light, upper part transparent capsule. The exit door in front. Then you have comfort, shelter from the elements, more power, more fuel storage and longer travel distance.

What it amounts to is, those in positions
of infuence and power who think they know
what is best for society better than society
does...

Just don't want us to have hover cars, jet packs,
or electromagnetic gravitational polarity
oscilating freaquency tuners. Like what the UFO's
use to maintain their flight and control of their
vehicles.

They figure they have enough on their hands
with drunk driving inccidents, and they don't
want to muddy the water with advanced technology.

I just want to know when the Anti-Tobacco People
are going to turn on the Liquor Industry?

It probably won't happen since most
of them are drunks and wine experts.

How about a new car for under 5 grand that
will run without fuel as a commodity?

It's possible.

Everyone should boycott the convenient stores
until they come clean about it, or simply
invest in more efficient transportation.

I agree with Modern Day Edison, we don't need idiots flying around the country. We need a cheaper ,more efficient form of ground transportation. One that has little or no harmful emissions. Several auto makers already have hydrogen fuel cells that are viable and operational at this time. I feel their only hinderance in mass production is the present administration. Bushes legacy will be titled "When Exrn and Haliburton went to Washington!!!!!

If you see how people drive forward and backward, you'd realize that up and down shouldn't even be an option.
