Ever since I was a little kid and saw "Back to the Future Part II", I used to dream of the day when I could have my own flying car (be it a DeLorean or not). Of course, as I got older and started actually driving, the idea has become much less appealing. Driving now is, for the most part, a two dimensional activity: you have forward, back, left, right, and all the angles in between. People (apparently) have a hard enough time with that as is. The flying car would just bring stupid into the third dimension.
