so sneaker pseudo-science wasn't invented by Nike in the 1980s. huh
Ah, the days when commercials just flat out lied to kids. No stupid disclaimers at the bottom of this one.

What is this...'cork?'
A cross promotion between Bell Labs and a fucking sneaker company. God, the 50s were a wondrous time.
(also, it's a good thing it was a tiny martian in a dinky UFO that showed up, and not those crazy fucking Chilean Decepticons)
No kid would ever see a spaceship and say "Let's get out of here!"
Even if (or especially) the spaceship was blowing up buildings of thousands of human, kids would be standing around saying "cooooooooooool"
I call this documentary a fake.
This proves that we've been waiting for jet-packs for over half a century now. What's the holdup, science?
I thought the problem was that it couldn't reach safe parachute height, but could go more than high enough to kill you if there was a critical system failure.
Also, yeah, it could only maintain 20 seconds of flight on a full tank.
Actually I lied. The real reason there's no jetpack is because all of our top scientists spend their time working on a baldness cure. Jetpacks won't make as much of an impact in the marketplace. But if the world were at all fair we would have them by now, and they would be like motorcycles for guys that are cooler than motorcycle guys.
