I think it's time we had a real world discussion about "Flying Car Absence Disorder", or FCAD.
FCAD happens in adults 50 and over, otherwise known as "The Generation Still Waiting on the Flying Cars We Were Promised".
It didn't happen. Neither did we run out of oil in the 90s, the ozone layer didn't disappear, etc.
Forgive us for doubting, but our FCAD is acting up.
If it ends with "give us more of your paycheck", you can bet it's a scam.
