3.5 Pass the bar exam.

You still have to sit through law school pretty much everywhere now. No more passing the bar and becoming an attorney. I've looked at this, changing it would be hard. Considering sitting through law school, but I'd rather not if it could be avoided. Just remember, if your small business is incorporated, it is a person, and you can't represent another person in court. One lawsuit could ruin your company and you'd be stuck watching the ship go down, trying to fight for it would be futile as you'd just be thrown out of the courtroom.

Musk is actually a huge Obama supporter, and Obama has been seen talking to, giving praise to, and visiting with Elon Musk. SpaceX and Elon Musk have been a huge part of the Obama Space Strategy. Any anti-obama sentiment comes from the ending of Republican-politican-approved programs, such as the Space Shuttle through companies like ATK and Boeing.

Yeah, you can't make a list like that without this one on it. Like they say in the aviation industry: If it looks right, it files right. Probably why Boeing lost to Lockheed for the X-35 contract. Even if it had worked, we would have been the laughing stock of the world when they saw that and said, "Ah, the Americans are here."

I agree in that this won't be implemented because of the business implications but would also go on to say that this solution is unoriginal and undeserving of all the pomp and circumstance that the media and the educational institutions are giving it, before we know it they're going to give out Ph.D's and there patents for a high school paper on using electrolysis to make hydrogen and oxygen. Call the press!

Business professionals such as attorneys and executives are the only people still using briefcases, middle management and your average run of the mill desk jockey might buy one of these as a toy, but not at this price point. You'd have to get it down to the sub-$500 level to hit that target market. This thing is defective by an order of magnitude on many levels.
