    Shouldn't we expect SureFire to start making lightsabres?

    Haha. If anybody started making them for the consumer market, it'd be SureFire.

    On second thought, I'd love to do the whole beam-me-up thing, just beam-me-over. Like jump into my portal at my house and land at Walmart instantly. Talk about saving gas and time! I could work in California if I felt like it, and still live in Va. Travel would be a breeze,...

    I often think that when I'm driving between San Antonio and Houston on I-10. Like, "I'm really sick of this boring highway that I'm driving for about the 1000th time. Can I just beam up now?"

    I would like to put in my advance order.
    Lightsaber-quantity (2) Details: 1 Green and 1 Red
    Phaser-quantity (1) Details: If you don't have the stun worked out, don't worry about it...I don't really need that function.
    Jet Pack-quantity (1) Details: Must run off water or air.
    Flying Car-quantity (2) Details: Must run off water or air. I would prefer autopilot but will settle for manual controls if shipping is faster.

    Thanks in advance,
    Kerb
    P.S...to be delievered prior to 2010. I'm tired of waiting.

    phaser- Can you imagine how apoplectic the anti-gunner's would get over one? I want one just to tick them off.

    flying car- There's a bunch of morons on the road today in cars....& they only have to deal with 2 dimensions......Can you imagine them when it's THREE?

    talking robots- I get enough back talk from real people....I darn sure don't want more from a robot....

    video phone- I hate the phone now & I don't have to look at who I'm talking to.....It would be a lot worse to have to see them as well.

    The mini would probably be OK.....but I'm liable to cut my own head off while fooling around with a full size one......

    Last thing in the world I need is a back seat robot driver telling me to watch out for the car above me and the boss seeing me while I am trying to call in sick so I can go play golf. You can keep your progress.

    So, regarding the holodeck, is it wrong that the first thing that came to mind was...







    ...the ability for interactive force on force training?

    I guess I must be a closet pacifist cause the first thing that came to my mind didn't involve "force" in any sense.

    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah... I'm still waiting on my X-ray vision glasses that I ordered off of the Frootie-Tootie-Frostie-Puffs cereal box in 1955.
