    This discussion brings to mind a quote from SF author Arthur C. Clarke: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

Actually I would love to see California's reaction to a nuclear powered automobile.

    It's a good thing we don't have flying cars, considering how poorly most drivers control their vehicles traveling in only two dimensions.

    I figure it would solve itself, in a Darwinian fashion, though most films depict it in a far more orderly fashion than I suspect would actually be the case.

    Perhaps - but not only would bad flying-car drivers kill each other, they'd also take out innocent folks on the ground beneath them. It would truly be "chaos from the skies."

    You know, this picture reminds me of my ex-girlfriend when she found out that I went to cinema and watched "Dawn of the dead" (the 2004 remake) without her. ;D

    We had a little argument about how I went alone because I knew that she dislikes horror movies etc...

    So after a few months the movie came out on DVD, and I called her to my place so we can watch the movie together. Now, one of the first scenes is when that zombie girl appears and bites the dude's neck, making him bleed out.

    Her: Turn it off, turn it off, turn it off...
    Me: What's the matter?
    Her: I can't watch this.
    Me: Told ya so.

    She should have listened to you the first time.

    That's funny; my ex-fiancee loved going to see horror movies. We went to see Pet Sematary, Fright Night 2, and several other such flicks together back then. Considering what a whiny little crybaby she turned out to be, I often wondered why she watched those type of films. Maybe she felt deep inside that she deserved to be punished, and scaring herself at a horror movie was her way of doing it?
