2015 has not been the future I was promised as a child in Back to the Future Part 2. Not only do our modern-day hoverboards not fly (ditto cars), but they may also set your house on fire.
The New York Daily News reports that one day after receiving reality's sorry-ass excuse for a hoverboard for his twelth birthday, a Laffite, LA child's home was nearly burnt to the ground when the pitiful present errupted into flames.
The Consumer Product Saftey Commission reports 21 people have been admitted to emergency rooms in hoverboard related accidents since September.
The future has a ways to go everyone...just keep enjoying living in the present for now.
