Another week, another Albert the Alien update!

When we last saw our hero, school bully Wally McNally had encouraged him to go check out “the pool on the roof.” Of course, there is no real pool on the roof, so this was a mean trick. Gerty, being the good friend, tries to stick up for Albert – but Wally’s not having any of it.

Here’s the thing, though – Albert’s from space! How do they get around? Jet packs. The thing I have wanted ever since I was a little kid.

Come on, science? Where are your priorities? Get me my jet pack already!

What was a cool invention you wanted to have? Or still want to have?
