I'd pick an FTL starship from my SFRPG campaign (an old OTHER SUNS campaign). Something like an armored scout (crew of 12-20) along with complete maintenance and repair manuals (not to mention equipment to fabricate spare parts, and thousands of tons of extra carrying capacity). With such a vehicle, I wouldn't even have to leave the system in order to have a TON of fun (not to mention starting up my own business hauling satellites into orbit). Gravity control = the solar system is mine. FTL = the nearby stars are mine. Shields capable of deflecting uncharged particles = I can go visit PSR 1257+12 (a pulsar, ~950 light-years away ... that has PLANETS...)

If someone would develop an all-electric car that could be charged up on house current (110 volt, 20 or 30 amp circuit) in 8 hours or less, with a range between recharges of at least 200 miles, I'd buy it if it cost less than $20k. If it had a range of 400 miles, I'd pay as much as $40k. (And yes, I could and would write out a check on the spot.)

I'd be looking for a simple sedan, though. I would NOT expect (nor would I be interested in) a "sports car" a la the TESLA monstrosity.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I don't worry about "the ones that got away". I got the one I want, now.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I consider myself to be a skeptic, and while I don't think that someone discussing UFOs is necessarily a fruitcake, if he thinks he has identified them as ETs, then he is a raving loony.

Don't buy a house - it will just tie you down. Rent.

Buy CISCO stock (every share you can manage) in 1991 and unload EVERYTHING in 1999.
