Reply Ace Woodlink on April 15, 2016 at 11:15 am Aww. Website isn’t there anymore. Reply Retnuh66 on March 29, 2010 at 5:50 pm You can only fly that jetpack for 30 minutes before you run out of fuel Reply Zyn on March 30, 2010 at 10:16 am Yes but 30 minutes at 60 mph is fairly good, you have a 30 mile range which would get you to work and back for many people. It also uses normal petrol rather than Aviation fuel and those only last a maximum of 12 minutes. Loving the comic, stumbled across this today Reply Itsamee on April 28, 2010 at 3:50 am I imagine that flying into the propeller of a Cessna would sound something like sticking a chicken leg into a juicer. Reply 14lbBallsofLove on May 8, 2010 at 10:13 am Thanks for the link Portalis. Who knew? Well, besides you (8'p) Sucks that I'm too light to fly it, but I've kicked my @$$ at the gym for too long to gain that weight back! Reply Anon on August 25, 2010 at 9:06 am Lol Portalis… that link is a FAIL. Reply Lavi on September 1, 2010 at 1:51 pm I don't care about jet packs, so long as we have hover boards in 5 years Reply Erhannis on November 6, 2014 at 8:18 am Hey, hey – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/142464853/hendo-hoverboards-worlds-first-real-hoverboard It’s not ideal, but hey, we’re getting closer! Reply TB Tabby on October 15, 2010 at 10:17 pm There have been jetpacks since the '60s, actually. The military experimented with them, but they were too noisy to be useful in the field. Reply Kanooka on October 23, 2010 at 4:36 pm Get a life people it's a comic for crying out loud. I think it's called "Poetic Licence" Reply Scribbles on December 8, 2010 at 9:58 pm Poetic License* Reply Miciah on January 22, 2011 at 4:33 am The spelling 'licence' is more common in some countries. Reply Stranger on September 28, 2011 at 2:24 pm The thing is, they DID make jetpacks. The problem is they turned out to kinda suck in real life.
