Jimmie Luecke managed to become an oil millionaire after leaving his previous job as a highway patrol officer and then proceeded to investe most of his fortune in land outside the town of Smithville.

My Arcade officially announced this week that their new handheld Retro Champ game console is now available. Unlike other portable game consoles, this one actually plays both NES and Famicom cartridges, complete with a built-in 7” screen that can also be output to a modern TV using HDMI out. This means g amers can test out cartridges on-the-go or simply enjoy the classic couch-side experience by connecting it to an HDTV and pairing it with up to two Super GamePad wireless controllers.
Powered by four 96,000-rpm JetCat jet turbines, the 308-pound Lazareth LMV 496 La Moto Volante is set to be the world’s first flying motorcycle, and it’s a doozy. Not only will the engines produce 1,300-horsepower, but 529-pounds of thrust to boot, all concealed within its sleek composite body. Its kerosene tank is large enough to enable the LMV 496 to hover above ground for around 10-minutes.
