Just had to share this light hearted blog by Mark Hall.
Heck, some of us have been waiting since watching tiny black and white TV's, while Flash Gordon tackled the arch villain Ming, to see space travel.
Jet packs are not on my wish list. The Jetson's robotic maid would be a welcome addition.
Today is the 3rd day of the new decade and I already feel "Ripped Off!"
The future is now but I want to know where the jet packs are!
I am a child of the '60s. I grew up with the likes of Captain Kirk, Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon. I was 12 years old before Luke Skywalker hit the silver screen. I grew up reading and watching sci-fi. Star Trek was a family favorite and I was thrilled when the first flip phone was introduced to the real world. (The "communicator of the 1960's!) It was another step closer to me having the knowledge that I would be alive when hover cars would be a part of everyday life and when recreational travel to faraway galaxies would be part of everyone's summer vacation plans. Hell, I was just about promised a jet pack!
2010 started a few days ago and I am more than a little bit disapointed. No recreational space travel. No hover cars. No transporters. No jet packs! AND DON'T EVEN GET ME started on phasers! The best we have is a bunch of folks (mainly Realtors) running around with Trekky looking blue tooth headsets in their ears!
