Finally

The flying car is here! Of course, you're limited to heights of no more than 10 feet, but it's a start. It would be a cool way to cross a river or lake, though.


orget keeping up with the Joneses…now you can keep up with the Jetsons. Not just cartoons, but every “futuristic” movie ever made seemed to employ some sort of flying car to titillate and amaze the audience, and it always worked too! What will futuristic movies rely on now that the stuff of fiction will soon be parked out in the garage?

The Moller M200G Volantor, produced by Moller International is shaped like a saucer and can be used for a wide range of recreation and practical purposes. Moller has already started work on the 67 orders received so far. Ground-based obstacles don’t bother the Volantor, so its creators say it can be used for extreme off roading, or as a ferry between a yacht and the land, among other uses. But eventually they'd like to see the vehicle used as the ultimate commuter vehicle. The company says it could also be used by the military or government, who they suggest could use the vehicle for skyscraper rescues and fire fighting.

Here's a link to the M200 brochure. And it costs only about $125,000.

Heh. I said only. As if. Anyway, here's a link to the company's website.

When you're short on time

There's always a Movie A Minute. Here's Good Will Hunting:


Matt Damon

I'm smart, but so what? Let's start fights and pick up chicks.

Robin Williams

If you push people away, they can't be close to you.

Matt Damon

SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP you fixed me thank you I love you. (cries)

THE END

I guess that there's just no good reason to go to the theaters anymore.

None shall pass

My geek credentials, that is. Trust me when I tell you that I was to women in high school/college as sunlight is to vampires. Then again, some vampires actively seek death, so they had a leg up on me. Anyway, this picture kind of sums it all up.

On the other hand, I still have some way cool Ral Partha figurines, so I've got that going for me.

New on the wish list

Stop-action movies may not be that great, but making your own would be pretty cool, right. Well now you can.

I might buy one for me my son this Christmas. He's a good sharer.
