    Yesterday, we had a flying car. Today, it's a jetpack - with the news that a daredevil wearing a jet pack has flown across a 1,500-foot-wide canyon in southern Colorado.

    We are living in the future, clearly.

    He didn't have a canine travelling companion though. ;)

    We're never going to get anywhere with jet-pack technology until we concentrate on the Collie component of manned (and dogged) flight. :mad:

    It is beginning to look like this will never happen unless, perhaps an amateur with a strong interest in seeing collies fly takes up the challenge herself. :)

    I'm already working on it. So far, the Collie/Bungee cord experiments have been a success. I need venture capital to move on to the Collie/Solid Fuel phase. :D

    Easier just to shoot Collies out of a cannon.

    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Easier but hardly ground-breaking. We shoot Doc out of a cannon every Fourth of July. Sure, we all enjoy it but are we really pushing back the boundaries of science? I think not.
