Re-Enactment of Wright Brothers Flight Fails

Washington Post

Ha! The Wright brothers' plane was so old and poorly designed (by today's standards) that weather delayed the flight at least a day. We all know that's unheard of in this day and age. My, how far we've come.

UPDATE: But the Wright brothers' efforts shouldn't viewed as inspiring, of course, because the were looking to make a profit, and even (horrors!) tried to enforce a valid patent! So says this NY Times op-ed.
