Flying car - Becomes a reality

Three "certified for flight" aircraft spring to mind. The DeHavilland Comet had a nasty habit of coming apart midair. The Lockheed Electra would sometimes shed an outboard engine/propeller inflight and cut it's own wing off. Boeing's 737 Max 8 had a propensity to over ride the captain's inputs and fly itself into the ground.............Just sayin...........Bob

Because drivers who can barely maneuver in two dimensions will be so much better at doing it in three dimensions...

 

Perfectly said!

 

A few years ago, the very enlightened city of Grass Valium (where I unfortunately live) spent over a million dollars to replace a four-way stop sign intersection with a roundabout. I told people before it was begun that it would never work as intended. People that cannot figure out how to work a four-way stop sign are NEVER going to understand how to approach a roundabout

They work in Europe because in Europe they still teach people how to drive.

I of course avoid that intersection during busy times. I love going through it at off times because I can go through it like a slalom racer!
