    Another Rant

    So, I was reading the Future Weapons thread, and I just want to know....Where's my freaking phaser?

    Or how about my flying car? Or my talking robots that like Rosy from the Jetson's? How about those video phones? Those were supposed to be the wave of the future...Where the heck did they go?

    I am feeling seriously gypped by all these people that kept telling us what we would have by the year 2000. We're more than halfway through 2008, and I don't have any of it.

    Some of you guys made some promises about 20-30 years ago, and it's high time those promises are made good.

    I'd settle for a Starship Troopers (the book) suit.

    We do have some weapons that can disable with only light or sound though, Taser: Phaser, close enough

    All your merchandise is in Area 51. Pickups through the drive through are on Mondays and Wednesdays.
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    And where is the "self-cooling beer can"?????

    BTW one future idea I'm happy I haven't seen is the "food pill".
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Yep, Rodc, I want my freaking jet pack, too! And gravity boots...

    But what it comes down to is I really want a phaser.

    I would rather be BEAMED UP by scotty than a jet pack. Can you imagine the price of filling that thing up.

    1 inch above ground, works best on smooth flat surfaces, and they charge you $50 bucks to send you a 'plan' on how to build it yourself...not quite what I had in mind.

    Or, you can buy one fully assembled for only . . . 9 grand!
