So, the wife, a friend, and I go to the Renton AFK, for a “Mage: The Ascension” 20th Anniversary Edition book signing, by the Writer. He’s a sci-fantasy writer, and he’s not just nice to the public, but he’s personable, approachable, and enthusiastic. I saw him dealing with a “Rules Lawyer” style interrogation of a few fans with which he entered with both barrels loaded & laid waste to adolescent fantasy, within the fictional ‘verse, mind thee, and kept the fans enthusiastic and wanting more.
Writer? Duh. Artist? Yea, that is what I saw therein.
So, someone asks the rhetoric question of “Why don’t we have Flying Cars?” As soon as I began talking, I was informed it was rhetoric in nature.
Carbon fiber shell, on a carbon-nanotube aerogel core, for the body/frame. Lightweight, Strong, and an electrical power capacitance beyond the dreams of avarice. Superconducting fan motors, using aerogel insulation and liquid nitrogen, give lift. There ya go.
Won’t happen. Insurance is a Bitch.
