The first prototype flying car is now in production. And the person responsible for it should be taken outside and shot, without benefit of a trial. Stop and think about what kind of chaos this thing will create. For one thing, there won't be any "rules of the road" any more--who's going to keep these geniuses in a traffic lane, or enforce speed regulations? And when two of them crash into each other (as opposed to the third or fourth floors of apartment buildings), death will literally rain down from above on pedestrians.

If there is one thing the United States does not need, it's flying cars.

Eh, the internet in 1995 was rather boring in comparison to today, but at least if you did a search back than you got what you were looking for.
Not true. Not boring. Remember gopher, netscape, bitnet???? it took a lot of work for a lot of people to make it happen. In 1993 I was responsible for installing internet connections for all of the California State University System campuses (322,000 students at that time.) Boring? NOT.
