Hoverboards are probably possible but right now really impractical. I did an essay on the concept of cars running like the hoverboards in the Uglies series. It was a really cool idea but would be completely impracticable at this point in time. Maybe in the future, I would be a willing test subject to try one out!!!

we could set it up in the destert (any destert) and just move the citys on top
it would actualy be a pretty good idea because where most magor citys in north america are now is on top of some of the best farmland cuz that's how alot of citys started off
so we could switch it back you know
of course it would take a hellofalot of effort that I don't forsee any govornment attempting

Conservatives. They're all, "Too pricey, inconvenient, blah bah blah". It'd be a good idea, but with a heck of a lot of risks.

What's wrong with hoverpaths? We don't have to uproot cities. Just go smoky and make lil' paths :)

Well, haha. If you swirved off the path (children tend to) you'd drop. And... die?
