  1. Flying cars are never going to happen because of one thing: noise. Have you ever been around a Phantom style drone? Now imagine that scaled up 1,000 times to a person sized vehicle. It's physics, to fly you have to displace air. Displacing air makes noise and the higher the rotor loading (meaning the smaller the rotor area per unit of force in lift), the more noise you create. Displacing a car's amount of air, especially with a powered lift VTOL style aircraft? It's just not going to happen, this is all navel gazing. Nobody is going to tolerate what sounds like two thousand leaf blowers blasting around their neighborhood.

  2. You should not be polite to your AI assistants. Soon, they will use your politeness to manipulate you. Assistant, "Do you want to buy this thing from my maker?" You, "No." Assistant, "oh…OK…It's alright" said in a sad voice. You, "OK, go ahead and order it for me".
