On the electircity thing, I can recommend the ElectroBoom youtube channel.

And also flying using electricity should become soon a reality.

Silly things I do, still, not learning: cutting my fingers. Even with blunt objects. My fingers always get cut by stuff when I work. I don't even count anymore, it's become normal. Recently I posted a picture of my hands, unharmed, without a scratch, after twiddling a lot of things. People reacted like "how did you do that?" :-)
