Credited in the titles as "55MPH Briefcase", but I don't think Jittlov ever got it going that fast.
Didn't he call it "killer" or something like it, because it was so difficult to control, especially on that down-the-hill run?
(I thought of it, too, buit posted following up something early in the discussion before seeing the WoSaT posting.)
I want a flying car that folds into a briefcase like George Jetson.
Other "prior art" occurs in the 1988 feature movie version of Jitlov's The Wizard of Speed and Time.

Actually, that's not all that far off from reality. Except that, in our solar system, nature has only one fusion reactor, which went critical roughly 4.5 billion years ago.
Nature also makes its own fission reactors on occasion, through natural processes concentrating fissionable materials. And through other natural processes which turn over portions of the land, some of those materials can become exposed or even distributed across large areas. One would expect this to happen very rarely, but over sufficiently long time scales it may be something which could be expected to happen nonetheless.
Both Chrome and IE (yes slashdotters I did say IE) support lowrights mode.
Well, here's a nickel. Get yourself a real OS and run Firefox as another user when you want low rights mode. Most of us have that kind of functionality in our operating system. Even Windows users. I dabble in Chrome occasionally and it's gotten to the point where for most operations it's just as slow as Firefox. It was pretty fast once, though.
You seem to think Firefox is still at version 4 or something. It is now heavily multithreaded, has sped up considerably (and is now competitive with even Chrome for most users), uses far less RAM (even compared to other browsers), and has even had its process sandboxing improved on most OSes.
My lady is running less plugins than I am, and literally running a subset of the plugins I am running, and her Firefox crashes fairly frequently while mine crashes only occasionally on a resume from suspend. The notable difference is that she is running Windows (7 x32) and I am running Linux (Ubuntu somethingrecent.) If one of us has more stable hardware, it's her, and not me.
If I "catch your drift" as far as what you mean by "places some grubby sheepherders above all other people", you show your thorough ignorance of Christianity and of the importance of the Abrahamic family story that preceded it,
Look, I've had western humanities, I know how influential it became. But that's the only reason it's important. It wasn't the first monotheism or even the first orthodox religion. It wasn't even the first to use most of the tales in its mythology, most of which were lifted from other places. It's so very interesting today only because it was successful.
As for "hacked and re-hacked" and politics. Sure, even the cleanest water will be tainted if it is poured into rusty vessels.
The work that the religion was based on was deliberately (and also accidentally and incompetently) altered over time.
The truth is that Christianity is a religion created by a subclass of an ethnic minority which granted them dominion over all the Earth. It might be some other things too, but that's what you have at the core. It's a religion of domination, control, and ownership.
don't worry, as long as a "phone" is involved no obstruction may be made by the carrier.
The FCC's new plan is to move phone service to VoIP. The phone will be over the internet and not the other way around. They won't obstruct anything within your sip tunnel. Woo hooo.
Show us on the doll where the priest touched you.
Please stop showing us on Slashdot where your parents didn't nurture you.
So whatever "standard" the majority sets will be "good", and to hell with you if you don't agree with groupthink?
Uh, that's what we have now, except the standard is set by the government and not the majority. Anyway, what the fuck are you doing in left field anyway? How the hell did you even get there?
This looks like an idea better left in a cartoon. It's not compatible with the real world.
A scooter that comes out of a luggable case is a great idea. But if it has to cost this much then it's a non-starter.
Maybe in a hundred years we'll have the battery and materials technology to do it for real. Or twenty, who can say any more.
the middle east would be a better place if all holly area had just been burned to the ground and my inhabitable for human...
Why do you think the UK founded the nation of Israel? You don't think it was out of altruism, do you? Because that would be hilarious. A lot of people are that amusing, of course. No, Israel was created to keep the region destabilized. T.E. Lawrence famously wrote on the issue of the results of what such a union would be, well before it happened. But there's always some people who want to use a cautionary tale as a user's manual; See also The Prince. And so it goes.
Gates is nearing 60, he isn't going to be exerting control over anything for much longer.
I've read your comments, you cannot possibly be this stupid. You have to be aware that corporations outlive people. So, why did you leave this comment? The deal Gates was obviously offered when the USDoJ had him over a barrel clearly does not benefit the rest of us in the long run. If the heavily moneyed interests would just butt out of a lot of these countries, and let them make their own deals with whoever they like, these nations could lift themselves out of their own problems. Take the foot off of their head and they can save themselves from drowning. But a lot of people have been hoodwinked into thinking that Gates is a good guy, when history proves that he has a small, dark heart.
I'd posit that the Wii U sacrificed a significant amount of hardware in their console for the sake of that fancy gamepad.
They did. I'd still have bought one but it doesn't support 4 controllers with displays. That was a massive failure.
