Men are Dirtbags

Alright. Not all men are dirtbags. Not Gary. Not my father. And not my brothers. . . I think. :) . But, to many men, this term is a badge of honor. They even celebrate their dirtbagginess by naming their teams Dirtbags and reveling in it.

Some of them have been – like the universal translator and computers you can talk to – and others are deemed eminently possible by leading scientists – transponders!. So, it got me to thinking: what space age, futuristic gadget would I most like to see here and now? Transporter? Jet pack? Orgasmatron?
