Think about it people. Did anyone actually PROMISE there were going to be flying cars, instantly, the second we entered this century? Or was that maybe… speculation? Hah? Huh?
How long is a century? 100 years, I do believe? Yeah, pretty sure. From the Latin word for ‘hundred.’ So everything we dreamed up was supposed to appear the very first of those hundred years?
Chances are it’ll never be like The Jetson, swerving and weaving wherever we please. Expect travel lanes. And a system on place for handling breakdowns. There’s an old story (no idea if it’s true or a joke) that at the beginning of the last century there were two cars in the entire state of Kansas… and they hit each other.
