The long-awaited Martin Jetpack has finally been made available for civilian purchase. The ducted fan “backpack” has a running time of 30 minutes, and can reach heights of 5,000 feet. They also have an unmanned version for $180,000 which is useful for search and rescue applications among other things. Click picture below for full story:
Trend is a noun. It means “A general direction in which something is developing or changing”. You can’t add “ing” to the end of a noun and pretend it’s a verb. So the non-word “trending” is just that; a non-word. Now Microsoft is computering this in Windows 8, with a “trending” tile on the start screen (see how stupid it is adding “ing” to a noun?)
On ABC news, I ran across this quote from Rudy Lopez, of the Los Angeles police department:
"[This is an] extremely tense situation," Lopez said. "We call this a manhunt. We approach it cautiously because of the propensity of what has already happened."
Propensity? Really, Rudy? Propensity? In the words of Inigo Montoya: “I don’t think that word means what you think it means” – LMAO!
