    Some people have so much money that true value means nothing. Of course, some things are priceless, and that is why they need to be protected at any cost. That is one of the great losses during wars when they get destroyed.

    Ive always puzzled over that line , "Oh the humanity !!" , I guess because its just something that people even back then , in English , just never say...

    Im guessing the flying luxury is an "airboat" from your comments , not that there was any indication from the clip.

    But I for one would love it !

    I simply love to look down upon the landscapes of the world , I could ponder them and their relationship to a map or where Ive just been for hours .. .... often Im the ONE having to be told to lower my window blind ( for some BS reason ??) when Im 'aloft'.
    If I had a religion it would be called "Google Earth" !

    That is why I love my drone. I get to look at the topography that I love, but from a different perspective. Years ago when I was working in forestry I used to love flying in helicopters for the same reason.
