A Sobering Thought

posted 4 Feb 2004, 11PM | 5 Comments

Earlier today, as I was thinking about the moon, Mars, space exploration and technology, something suddenly occurred to me: It is possible that we will never, in my lifetime, develop successful flying car technology for personal use.

It's a sobering thought.

not true. you may never get to own one, but it has, in fact, been successfully developed.

Ryan, as you know I share this 'flying car' dream, but can you imagine what the tolls will be like on the skyways?

I'm familiar with Moller Skycar, but it's that personal use that I'm waiting for.

Tim Allen [yes, the guy from Home Improvement] once said that he thought that GM or Ford invented fly cars a long time ago, but as the engineers left the lab and took one look at a busy highway, they immediately destroyed every piece of evidence that the flying car existed... true.

About 99% of the people in this world have serious problems mastering a vehicle on the X and Z axis - imagine the chaos of adding the Y! Then take a drive on the 405 or the 110 at 6pm!
Even worse than all of that, would anyone want to live in a world where you saw stacks and stacks of cars in teh sky instead of clouds and sunsets? Remember the FWY in Back To The Future II...
