Not at all. We will have flying cars, live to 500 and never have to sit in a cubicle again. I'm confident. :P

Thanks to the virus I haven't sat in a cubicle since March 2019.

I can't wait for the airborne insanity of flying cars. We'll all have to live in crash-proof domes.

Are the flying cars solar powered or does Tesla have the copyright on that?

Scientists are figuring out how to make jet fuel from atmospheric carbon dioxide, so there you go, we'll be fueling them from hot air generated by politicians.

And not just within the city limits, but right fucking downtown. More pictures here:

Although I was born and raised literally in Detroit — and Gordie Howe literally came to watch a youth hockey game I played in* — I can't imagine ever living within the city limits again.
