I'm pretty sure that by the year 2000 we were guaranteed a whole bunch of flying things.  Flying cars, flying skateboards maybe even some sort of hover shoes.

Here we are in 2011 and we don't even have a good jetpack!  I want refund!

A very small part of me feels bad for this guy, until I hear him say, "Starts Noooooowwwwww".  I'm not sure what, but something about his voice makes me laugh every time.

Not all Jet Pack attempts end so hilariously, so maybe there is some hope.
