2022 TRANSPORTATION

I think this fits in "TECH BULLSHIT" but feel free to move if not.

(CNN) -- Fliers, drivers and rail riders, heads up: the next 10 years will dramatically transform America's traveling landscape.

Get ready to share the road with driverless, computer-controlled cars. Prepare to join millions of travelers who will start riding trains to nearby cities. Expect to be nickel-and-dimed (even more) by the airlines. Don't be surprised to see sleek new airline designs that run cleaner and burn less fuel, thanks to new materials and innovative technology.

For anyone else who likes planes, the article's photo gallery of protoype commercial carriers is very cool, imo.

It truly would be awesome right about now; probably not too far off in the future. Got a bug with stuffy head goin' on today - would love to have their dedicated robot maid, Rosie, on hand too.

Here are the Jetsons and Rosie in their vehicle, same color green as the plane that I posted.

Damn, I want one of these










I would like a new sig line, but am not sure what it should be. So I will just put a tag that says "This space for rent"
