JETPACKS RANT

I've come to accept the disappointing reality that in the year 2007 we do not have FLYING CARS. Its fucking BULLSHIT because we were PROMISED that our future would have them. Anyway, I accept the reality. I also accept the fact we do not have lazer and/or ray guns. Again, another broken promise. I'm ok with these. Really, I am (its actually an ongoing day-by-day thing). However, I am NOT ok with one simple fact that is utter bullshit: NO PERSONAL JETPACKS. What the fuck, man?!! As a Society and Civilization, we should be ashamed of ourselves. Its the 21st Century, man! I should be able to wake up in the morning, slap my kickass looking JETPACK on, kiss my wife good-bye and then fly to work... possibly thwarting a crime in progess on the way in.

There is hope for the next generation as much smarter people than me are now beginning the process of making personal jetpacks for themselves... which could then lead to mass market production. These people are usually Tekkies with no lives, but that's ok (not everyone can be a cool guy with a blog......er.....). So hopefully, I'll be able to watch my kids or grandkids fly around on their sweet Jetpacks. Heck, Grandpa Jimmy just may strap one on and go out like a frickin' champ... yes, Thor Helmet and Hammer will be on my person... maybe even a lightsaber.

Shit, why don't we have LIGHTSABERS?!!

There's still 93 left in the 21st century. You should work on staying alive long enough to see those things happen! I mean, if you think about year 1900 & compare to 2000... damn! Computers, robots, video games, hybrid cars... the list is endless. Jetpacks will be easy. Lightsabers a little harder - but not much.

I say again - we need to find a way to stay alive longer. My goal is 100 years, but that only brings me to 2070. I'm hoping by then that they find a way to extend life by another 100 or so.

I'm banking on cybernetics. First I'll go with the eye,...then start with either my geneticaly grown organs, or an artificial of some sort. then as my body starts to fail, I'll ingets the FDA approved HGHn (the 'n' stands for 'new')which will slow down and somewhat reverse the aging process. then when it get's to bad,...I'll transfer my brain into a vagrant i "take care of".

They don't even have the medical technology advanced to the point where we can be frozen or in stasis until they DO have flying cars and jetpacks.

Also, there are so many complaints about traffic and today there was a report issued on how Chicago's "L" commuter train is seriously deteriorated and people's commutes will double in the next 2.5 years - isn't that just proof that we need, nay MUST HAVE, flying cars and jetpacks??

I believe the technology exists for lightsabers but we will never have them because as soon as we do there would be men EVERYWHERE severing their own limbs by accident.

So, Jim, would you throw your hat over the wall for a flying car? What would you be willing to trade for the flying car? Say some German scientist came up to you and offered you a flying car. One catch, he won’t tell you what the catch is? Would you take the flying car? Careful with that answer…http://www.viewaskew.com/tv/leno/flyingcar.mov
