Umm, the heli bit is common, it will make you able to fly upside down and bring the heli down in an updraft. Lol, at first heli ejector seats fired down, but then in the vietnam war people started flying real low to the ground!!!!!!!

You must not understand what the world would be with no hydraulics, I realize your reffering to hydraulics on cars, but hydraulics are used in various applications, and is certainly something that was a great invention. Think about tractors, scissor lifts, and many of the other various applications hydraulics are in.
