Blueprint for a Jet Pack

"Mommy," my seven-year-old son said, "I made a blueprint for a jet pack that would fly a million people!"  He waved a notebook paper with scribbley lines and stick figures on it in front of me.

"Really?  Tell me about it," I said.

"You need 10 metal poles, 641 wooden planks, 10 plastic sticks, and a rope.  See - the poles fit together and the rope ties here."

"I see."

"It's as big as a playground, that's why it can hold a million people."

"Uh huh."

"Oh, and I forgot one more important thing."


"The smiley face sticker that goes right in the middle!"
