Monday, January 3rd, 2011 (Welcome Back to the New Year!)

Even though no one ever talks about it, the government has been pushing the boundaries of technology for years.  If anyone is close to or already has the things we see in movies, it’s the government.  The government is now experimenting with making, FLYING TRANSFORMER humvees!  That’s right. You read that right.  Is this a good idea?  What could the applications of this be?  Are there not any better things to study?  Would you ever want one of these? Why or why not. (You must use 5 COMPLETE SENTENCES or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    No its not a good idea.I would never use a flying car. Yes there are better things to study. The reason i would never use one of them is because they might not be safe to use. There is a lot that could go wrong.

    this is a good idea because it be helpful with attacking the enemys because you can just fly them were ever you have to go. and when the situation starts to get bad, then you can just fly the pricey machines away. the army and special forces could use this for special operations and a less costly transportation.

    i think that this is a good idea if you want money because people will find this idea amusing and interesting so they would want one and also i would probably want one because it would be really cool to drive that kind of automobile it would be very cool just to see some one drive it so i think that this is a good idea and also i would want one

    I think its a good idea because if we are trying to win the war and we are loosing right now then we need better weapons and ships and stuff to win. So i really think its a good idea so we can get this war over and stop people from coming in our country and blowing stuff up.

    yeah i do not think that that is a good idea. for one the cost will be up a lot. second its not really safe. also the repairs for that car would cost so much that some people wouldn’t be able to afford there car no more. finally some people might be scared of highest and freak out on when there driving.

    YES IT IS A GOOD IDEA FOR MONEY BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL WANT TO BUY THEM. THE CAR MAYBE IS SAFER THAN OTHERS. BECAUSE IT IS ABLE TO STOP WHEN THE PEOPLE DRIVING DON’T SEE PEOPLE WALKING IN FRONT OF THEM. THAT IS WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT THE FLYING CAR MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO.

    I think it is a bad idea because this is one of the reasons the world is being determined to destroy or end. I think that if the technology keeps increasing the world will eventually end because the other people that are trying to create bigger better things will hurt this even more so i dont think its good idea.

    This device looks cool but I don’t know what it is. I’m not exactly a technical person so I cannot fully answer this question. I think it should be tested a little more before actual use. An accident could be waiting to happen. That’s my opinion.

    no. i do not think it is a good idea because it is just wasting the governments money. i mean i would never use a flying car. and i really don’t think alot of people would. plus some people might get some of the technology that we have and that could be another one of the ways people try to bomb us. and plus it will hurt alot of people because if you crash your flying car in the air, its going to be alot worse than when you do on the ground.

    I think this is cool. I can fly to visit relatives. I am so ready for flight lessons when I am learning to drive. The only problem would be the risk for accidents. If there is no road, everyone might fly into each other.

    I think it’d be a good idea. The thing is, we already have enough war technology. We could be studying and making things that help fight and cure diseases. That would be more useful to not only the country, but the world. We would need to do that more than make new war machines.

    well first of all… this would be soo awsome! i would buy one if i had the money later in life, well thats if theyve invented it by then. but then again, there would probrably be too many accidents from these things. i mean the ransition from the ground to transforming into a heli copter or somethen could fail or mees up and there would be some serious work t do and tests to be run b4 they start to sell tham to the public. but it would be a very good advantage for the army and military for air combat.

    This is a bad idea because it would take to much fuel. also no one has house insurence for a car flying through the house. I THINK NOT NO I DON’T !!!!!!!!!!. Also they would cost too much and the US is already going to be poor. Before this we should try to make more money

    That sounds pretty cool and it sounds like a pretty good idea. Even though they will probably cost a lot. They will probably have some problems with them when they first make them but i think they would sell. I would not buy one though until they have been selling for years though just in case of problems they may have.

    Well i don’t know for real. You know why. Well because the main thing is that it cost to MUCH ! And plus most technology is so fragile now a days. Like technology today is useful but more easliy broken. If i was to bye one of those cars or flying cars some really bad or life threatning could happen to me. We have many car wrecks today than back then. It’s very dangerous now one the roads because you have the drugs, the drinking while driving, texting while driving, and plenty more. So imagine if there were flying cars. More deaths, more car wrecks, and more filed lawsuits. It’s bad enough the econmy is bad now. So plenty of things can happen. O yeah there would be more observations if there were new cars and flying cars. The reason is because they wanna see how it works, what’s the price of it, is it reasonable, and so much more.

    I don’t think this is a bad idea under one condition that these flying cars don’t put more pollution in the air then regular cars do. Also would you have to go get another driving license specifically for flying cars and would there be more wrecks if any of this was to occur it would be a bad idea but other then that it sounds cool and fun.
