Silly Vote of the Week: Flying cars or jetpacks?
We've had a huge amount of really great stuff from several attraction openings over the past week. (Thanks again to Anthony and Russell for their help!) So I decided to take a little breather with a silly and somewhat off-the-wall question for this week's vote.
Mind you, this one inspired a raging debate in the Niles family car on the way home from school the other day. So I think people will have something to say about this one.
And if you really need the theme park tie-in, just imagine which one you'd rather ride in a theme park attraction. So, here goes:
Support your choice -- flying cars vs. jetpacks -- in the comments, please.
Not only would a flying car be more fun to use, but it's also alot safer.
I don't know about that. A crash in a flying car would be nasty. With a jetpack, if you get in trouble, pop a chute and drop the pack. Easy. Plus, there's a lot more freedom with the jetpack.
Well, in a jet pack you are more exposed and who knows, the parachute might not work=)
Well of course you could have both. Riding in a flying car and have a jet pack for those emergency "sky" side breakdowns. But after watching the Jetsons as a kid, who doesn't want that lifestyle? It's amazing how when you think about it, but nothing new has been invented, just the old models improved upon. Thank goodness we have theme parks to give sparks to our what ifs.
Definitely Flying Car. I remember reading a book in elementary school in the mid 80's showcasing a timeline of cars. For 2000 and beyond it had some cool concept art for flying cars. I remember as we got closer and closer to 2000 I kept wonder when we would see their debut.
I would love a flying car. It seems to me that we were to have them by now. I think the jetpacks would appeal to the same people that prefer motorcycles. Maybe load up your flying RV for a vacation.
For my bunch the flying Toyota Sienna is the way to go. Maybe when the kids grow up and move out, I can get the Ferrari jet pack to impress the ladies!
Yeah, then Exxon/Chiquita would jack the price of bananas to $150 a pound. ;-)
Being a huge Back to the Future fan, a flying car is the easy choice for me.
Then again, let's not be completely pessimistic. There have been rumblings, in the circles of quantum physics, about being able to manipulate the Casimir Effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casimir_effect).
When I was younger, I was all for flying cars. As I grew up and continued to drive throughout the years, I don't want people driving around in the air. People can't drive on the ground, so what makes anyone think that flying cars for the general public is a good idea?
I am in Disney World right now and I want my flying car Mr. Disney!
Jetpacks. Especially after seeing Iron Man.
