1. Most of the flying cars listed seem to have rather flimsy wheels, so I don't think they would be allowed to drive in traffic. The better their land vehicle capabilities the more plane like they seem to be, but then they are just like planes. You could attach some sort of flimsy wheels to a helicopter so it would be a flying car, and I guess they would be good for driving it around to find a spot in underground parking area.
2. Is the danger area thing really necessary for defining whether it is a flying car or not? I mean it could be that the heliport thing is used for landing, but it can then find a smaller spot somewhere else just as long as it fits side by side with others. For landing, probably any flying vehicle needs a larger area because things sometimes don't work out with that much of a pinpoint accuracy when landing.

Recently they discovered an essential clue about our secret plans - that dogs poop in accordance to earths magnetic field. So we will have to stop them before it's too late. I insist on placing our secret persuadetron chips into birth control products and antipsychotic pills.

"The procedure is similar to MRI but uses the change in magnetization between oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor blood as its basic measure."- so now think about it. Yes it could find false positives in dead fish brain, but it is still a good way to acquire information about the brain activity of a living being. Yes I also do know that a damaged brain area also shows abnormally high oxidation but you can just pick the healthy volunteers for this kind of study. It sometimes seems that some people just don't want to understand things.

Any chemists out there? Will it make a nice fuel when the hydrogen is attached? Like this one:
Would it be dangerous like this dude here says (read the tendencies part):
I also read that these fuels were also researched in USSR. It always makes me wonder what didn't happen there. I know a couple of nice stories myself about the things that didn't happen. Things only happened when they were good or meant to be terrifying or when their fallout set off the alarms in Swedish nuclear plant. I did read these bits about boron based fuels when there was some article about green UFO-s. I know these sources might not be adecuate or true, so you might want to add your own.
