Right, cars and Amazon delivery drones dropping out of the skies everywhere. That just sounds great.
Yes indeed, we all should help support the butterflies.
Awesome – that’s right on! The Jetsons soliloquy … you’re right there was only Astro.
Yeah, when i was a kid, i used to watch that cartoon all the time, and i was wondering why there isn’t too much animals roaming around, and it appeared to have a small population living there. the futuristic city looked so controlled, like a dystopian society.
You’re right. I don’t recall plants either. Everything is up in the air. We just accepted it as the cool future with flying cars.
yeah, and wondering when they will actually create these flying cars. i hope they don’t create flying cars because most people can’t even drive regular cars. i would be scared of air collision.
