| | Comments (10)

Among the items from "future that wasn't": a jet-propelled backpack that appeared in a 1969 issue of Popular Science. There's a fabulous image of a person in retro-futuristic garb, seemingly flying through mist over a mountain range.



How does he keep his butt from catching on fire?

I don't know which is worse the burned butt or the ugly hat.
