Batteries Not Included

Popular Mechanics magazine was a staple in my life for many years. It was always loaded with do it yourself projects that were easily handled by amateurs like me. Somewhere along the line, however, the magazine became a replica of Popular Science. Probably because in this modern world of plastics, and electronics, home-made seemed blasé. I gave up reading Popular Mechanics when that happened.

Recently, I received a solicitation from a young lady named Grace Ann Jean age eleven who was working a school project to raise money by selling magazines. I looked over the list and bought a subscription to Popular Mechanics.

The very first issue I received showed a flying car on the cover. Oh no I thought, not another one. Sure enough the author showed the history of flying car articles in Popular Mechanics since 1957. Up to this point there have been five, and this issue makes six. The article is titled The Future of the Flying Car (For real this time maybe) features a car based on drone technology. It is perfectly plausible. The company that is promoting the car says it will have a twenty-three minute flying time. I guess that is progress.

This morning I spent time catching up on the week’s e-mails and found one from my retired Air Force pilot buddy with a video featuring a lady who remarkably resembles Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I am still laughing. Watch it, and tell me if you don’t react the same way.
