This is just a case of a failed braggart making bigger boasts to keep his audience.
Ahhh wrong on all counts, i have actually done some research on this and it can be done especially if they use the VASMIR engine if it not a hoax, but there alot of websites and magazines say other wise. Wheres your proof.
