Brawndo: As for the robot gas station, who needs gas when all you need is a Mr. Fusion that works on household trash?

Mr. Fusion powers the time circuits but the internal combustion engine runs on ordinary gasoline -- always has.

You Are All Sheep: FullMetalPanda: Why 88 MPH?  Were the fans of Hitler?  I thought 88 meant Heil Hitler to those Nazis lovers/

Because deloreans were very heavy underpowered cars.  88 is realistic so that people who actually owned the cars wouldn't freak out if you said 120 mph.  although I don't think those cars could hit 88 in the span of that parking lot.  It had a volvo engine.  Nice & safe & not very fast.

I thought 88 was chosen because the producers liked that it looked like double infinity symbols.

The only reason George McFly is on the upside-down hoverbelt thing is to make it less obvious that they wouldn't hire Crispin Glover to be in the movie.

FirstNationalBastard: I don't blame Back to the Future for lack of hoverboards, I blame scientists.

If they can't cure cancer and AIDS, they could at least pacify us with hoverboards.

They invented a pill to get your dick hard what more do you want?

15) The Scenery Channel

In Canada, there's FrameTV, which is ostensibly your desktop screensaver of pictures of pretty places.  Or if motion is the criteria, there's experiential tv shows like Sunrise Earth, ostensibly the scenery channel.  In short, its been done.

Mister Fusion and suspended animation kennels are the two I'd most like to see. Also, Elizabeth Shue still looking 26 years old.

Scientists are too busy trying to do dick moves like trying to take chocolate out of chocolate or making artificial sweeteners more vile tasting and cancerous. They have no time trying to make the world a better place.

Actually, those were in our ORIGINAL future, but a certain asshole geezer with a buzzcut had to go and screw up the timeline, depriving us of so much hoverboard goodness.

13) Remote Hovering News Cameras
When Griff and his hooligans buddies are being led away from the courthouse they've wrecked by the police, a hovering news camera is instantly on the scene. It might not be a big deal for most people, but I imagine CNN and the other 24-hour news stations would kill for someone to invent these things.

Wow, I'm glad we don't have anything like a hovering camera.  That would be scary!

As a Cubs fan, I am glad I am only going to have to wait until 2015 for a championship. Not that they look like they will be a winning team for a few years, but maybe that is part of the idea. Long odds in Vegas make for a much bigger payout.
