Comment File a flight plan (Score 1) 606

I would be all for flying cars (as I have my pilot license). But consider a few things: most people don't care about how they drive today. Pilots have to be conscious of other traffic, weather and the like. Would you need IFR rating to use flying cars? I wouldn't want to have it sitting at home when the crosswind component is reached and I can't fly it. Landing could be interesting as well. It is busy most weekends when more people are in the air now. Can you imagine trying to sequence a landing at (gasp) Wal-Mart during Christmas shopping season? Oh, and no ATC either.
ATC: "Traffic at your one o'clock, type Flying Car at 3000 feet and driving erratically"
Pilot: "I have the traffic and steering clear of them..."

The FCC's rush to takeover the Internet is just the latest example of the need for fundamental reform to protect consumers.

The FCC is trying to protect consumers, you fuck. Honestly, do these people believe that anyone will swallow lies like that?

Simply put: Yes.
