That concept looks off.
Seems like the center of gravity and center of lift would be all out of kilter. It doesn't look like it would be able to generate enough nose up lift to get off the ground.

It would actually fly just fine. The real problem is that you are putting passengers further from the center of mass, which means every turn is going to make people hurl their peanuts.

Deoco, a range of women’s beauty products that allegedly captures the coveted “young woman smell”, has become a huge hit in Japan, among both older women who want to smell younger and lonely men who crave the fragrance of a younger woman.

Futurama, The Simpsons... Matt Groening knows things. He should start a religion, or admit he's a time traveler.

I had an O2 for a while - it was about to be tossed in the dumpster. It was a very cool machine, and could do things with video that wouldn't become common place until much later. However, as an actual computer, it wasn't that fast. You really had to design tasks to fit its strong suits.

I believe I gave that machine to someone on this board, but I can't remember who now.

I have a blue gumdrop machine that you sent me. It's in my storage unit though. Never tried firing it up. Some day when I have time...
