  • A very perilous future too.
    There was something on the radio that you aren't allowed to ship them by airplane, because the lithium ion batteries will catch fire.

  • Hmm. It seems no one who knows me well enough for a present thought I could handle a hoverboard. I think that's just as well.

  • It's reported that Ralphie chose the Red Ryder over the hoverboard. He'd risk an eye, but not the neck.
