I live on a street that is a straight shot to a major arterial. We are one house away from a stop sign. From there it is 1/4mi to the arterial. People do donuts at the stop sign, I've seen cars line up three wide to race. That means they play chicken with parked cars. Almost nobody stops …

He's not the only one. Fox 10 and ABC 15 both went with calling it a jetpack. Apparently journalism means transcribing govt press releases without question.

I know most people don't care and probably never even noticed the giant plane. I however always stopped what I am doing and look up in awe that something that big can actually fly. We'll still get the occasional 747 freighter but somehow it won't be the same.

They all live on the East side and have never looked at a map. To them everything on the far side of Phoenix is Glendale.
