That's because the 99% can't afford a jet pack.

THANKS, OBAMA!

You get a jet pack, and I'll stunt right back on you... regardless of cost.

Phil: This jet pack project is going to be so exciting. Jet packs are the ultimate dream of every scientist. Skies teeming with ordinary citizens strapped to rockets.
Lem: Flying through the air at 60 miles an hour in any direction... A lot of people are going to die.

cgraves67: If everyone had a rocketpack we would need a full time staff of people to clean bloody smears off the sides of large buildings and clean up debris from mid-air collisions.


We already do. They're called paramedics.

Well, the bloody smear guys are generally lumped under the "industrial and/or medical cleaning services" category. But the paramedics have to bag most of the big chunks.

Robot women is all I ask for. They must come "fully loaded" with a remote that has a giant mute button.

KoolerThanJesus: A mere 20% said they'd try eating meat made in a lab.

Clearly 20% have never eaten at Taco Bell.


Taco Bell meat is made someone's basement, not anything worthy being called a lab.

I have it on good authority that hoverboards are coming out next year. I've known this since I learned it from an undisclosed source when I was a kid. Sometime around 1985.

I want a jet pack, a house-cleaning robot and a flying and/or driverless car. I also want a replicator, a tricorder and a holodeck. I'll pass on teleportation and pod racers though.
