Oh, yeah.. those were making the news a couple months ago.

It’s one of those ‘why didn’t someone come up with that sooner’ ideas. It’s tethered flight, sure, but it’s remarkably inexpensive, since you don’t need expensive fuel and propellants. You can stay aloft functionally indefinately, unlike other jetpacks which have a flight time that is measured literally in seconds. Awesome for vacation areas, as shown, since it’s cheap enough that anyone can give it a try.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Another nifty tidbit: After one’s initial one hour training session (leaving one with only a 1/2 hour or so “fly time”) every additional session is made up of ONLY “flying”! cheese


Tell me you wouldn’t WANT one of these: hmmm

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
