    If anybody actually believed that, they should be sterilized immediately.

    Everyone will be looking for a shakedown if the lawyers get involved

    Who is suing for damages? Nobody can sue somebody for making a prank viral video. Nobody was asking for money or advocating that people do anything. A judge would throw that shit out of court in a second. If people could sue for being disappointed, every girl I ever dated would have every penny I ever earned.

    In fairness, this one went mini-viral.

    When Back to the Future 2 came out there was a "making of" documentary/promotion on TV and they claimed the hoverboard was real. I'm embarrassed to say it, but I made a bet with my dad about it. He tried to explain that if it was real the tech would be used in countless places before skateboards... but I believed the TV more than any logic. It was a good lesson though. :p

    a hoverboard would need to be close to the ground to "push off" from the ground, with some force like an air steam or magnetic levitation. Having a 'hoverboard park' is doable now by having a magnetized floor, and magnetic hoverboards. There are trains that use magnetic force to lessen friction with the tracks.

    "Magnetic levitation, maglev, or magnetic suspension is a method by which an object is suspended with no support other than magnetic fields. Magnetic pressure is used to counteract the effects of the gravitational and any other accelerations." -wiki

    This is going to kill the fail video industry.

    This is a good lesson on why you shouldn't get your news and politics from John Stewart.
