I saw this in the printed catalog while on a flight recently.  I thought others here would appreciate this.

Ah Skymall . . . You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.  You must be cautious.

No technical details at all. None. Even a car ad will give some information.

I like this one better, because the model is, um... hovering?

I'm sure it's gimmicky and doesn't work nearly as well as pictured... but that actually looks like it would be fun as heck!

Not for $85K though.

Neiman Marcus Christmas catalogue


Geez, I just read the tripe for the fragrance at the link...  Thought It was Bob Barker telling me about my fabulous showcase showdown, only I'd bid $29.99

Your quest to fragrance utopia begins with two first-class tickets to Paris close to the Fontainebleau, where you’ll meet with sixth-generation Master Perfumer Olivier Creed to create the ultimate custom scent. While in The City of Light, you and a guest will dine with Creed, enjoy five-star accommodations, white-glove car service, private tours and other experiences befitting the royally amazing you.

It's fun to look at the catalog, though.  "People actually BUY this shit?"

This thing looks like one of the most expensive ways to drown yourself I've ever seen!
