Personal Jetpacks

I grew up with the idea that I'd have a personal helicopter to drive around in: or maybe a jetpack, after watching the Bond flicks. So far, these have been a disappointment, though they have started to look cooler.

What's the problem?

Well, at over 100 miles an hour, I have the suspicion that the flight could last a long time.

Perhaps the rest of your life.
