    Let's watch everyone crash their new hoverboards

    People are actually getting hurt from these things and ending up in the hospital. And of course, every kid wants one at $499 a pop!

    That is why I told my wife there is no way in hell that I would buy one of those for our kids. Those hover boards are compared to the ER visit.

    Back in the day I was completely useless on a skateboard. Let alone a hoverboard.

    I just realized something.

    Didn't Marty McFly have a "hover board" in Back to the Future???

    Have we finally started to realize the future?

    WOW!!! That means flying cars, very soon:rolleyes:

    I believe that is from some of the lower end knockoffs...lower price means lower quality components and pooof fire. I want to try one, but I'll be putting on a helmet lol

    If my clumsy self was going to get on one I'd have my wife standing by with 911 on speed dial and ask the local
    ER to have a good bone doctor and a body cast ready for me!

    Why do they call it a hover board. Marty Mcfly never touches the ground.
