Hoverboards
« on: December 25, 2012, 09:25:53 AM »

What do you think the hoverboards looked like?  I couldn't exactly picture them, I thought of them as a really big flat board with blinking lights

According to the manga, they look more like surfboards.
My personal vision was a thicker skateboard with a line of bumps on the bottom for the lifters.

I thik the look more than surfbords, finally Tally and Co stand with the toes foreward on that. That does not work with a skatebord.
I imagine the are as wide like the long side of a magazin and about 80 cm long. But in the moast trailers the look like skatebords.

Fail on my part.
And that's what I mean. Liberty and freedom are pretty close in meaning are they not?

Almost the same. I THINK liberty is more government related and freedom is just an over-arching title.

my Mom watched the 700s Club on TV once, and she got through the whole thing thinking it was Saturday Night Live.

the 700s club is this group of people (That look really creepy) that get on TV and tell people that the world is going to end because they see the signs and then they find places in the bible that match what they're saying.
