I would so kill myself. But I'm a total spaz and cannot be trusted on motorized and/or wheeled apparatuses. Doesn't it seem like that should be apparati?

Yes, it does. And I feel like I would burn my feet right off.

Those things look heavy. I bet landing is a bitch.

downtown guy said...

But he has his special landing shoes on!

Oh man. I have been waiting all my LIFE for this to become a reality.

downtown guy said...

From what I understand, the major problem is making it possible to carry enough fuel for distance flight.

I think there would be a whole mess of issues with jet packs, which is why they are not made usable yet. Feet being burned off, the heaviness, slamming your head into the ground... you know, those kinds of problems.

downtown guy said...

Yeah, but JET PACK!

Ignition- lift off!
