This will end badly: flying car approved by the FAA

Flying cars seem like a downright terrible idea. After all, if people can't manage to deal with driving cars without getting into accidents while texting, how would they handle their own plane?

But hey, the gang at the FAA must disagree with me, as they've just approved the Terrafugia Transition, a $194K street-legal car that can fold out its wings and turn into an airplane.

It only takes 20 hours of flying time to get the proper license to fly this, a "light sport" aircraft. Think of how much quicker you'll be able to pick up the kids from school with this thing! And how much more likely you'll be to crash into the top of a house on the way home!
