Archeologists have stumbled upon a cave painting that suggests that commercial flights began as early as the Stone Age
No, it wasn’t the Wright brothers, not even Michelangelo. Mankind would not wait thousands or hundreds of thousands of years to fly. We’re too ambitious for that. The first time we laid eyes on birds, we wanted to copy them. We wouldn’t just let them do something that we can’t. Flying was probably invented even before the first round wheel rolled out of the plant, so to speak. Why? Because it’s just so much easier to achieve. At least vertically. I mean downward. All you have to do is just let go. The first such flights probably predated tools and were much likely not voluntary.
