Science Fiction Meets Ugly Reality

At first glance, the commercially available jet pack seems wonderful and Jetsons-ish, but while I hate to be a spoilsport, I have to think that suicide bombers will just love it:
1. Strap pack with tank of jet feul on back.
2. Strap on suicide belt. So far, all can be done in secluded private property.
3. Fly at and into target at maximum velocity, without need for mass transit, checkpoints, or any sort of license.
4. Profit!

  1. Thankfully, suicide bombers tend to have an eye on cost-effectiveness, and at $226K, this really is not a bargain.
