Bees can’t fly; scientifically, their tiny wings beat too slowly to lift their fat hairy bodies. Science must be wrong; it’s some kind of conspiracy!
Let’s talk about flies.
More precisely, bees, which can’t Fly that is.
I’ll repeat that for clarity: Mathematically, a bumblebee cannot fly. The poor thing’s wings are simply not big enough, nor do they beat at a sufficient rate, to maintain airspeed velocity.
It’s also been argued that since (a) Nelly is an elephant and (b), Nelly is pink, that therefore (c); all elephants must be pink.
The statement that bees cannot fly is illogical, since nature clearly demonstrates that elephants are grey. Therefore, it is man’s understanding of mathematics, or more particularly quantum physics, that is flawed.
I knew a quantum physicist once, but he was all washed up. He’d climbed the heights of academic glory and fallen back to earth a broken but much richer man. His favourite topic of conversation was bees. He’d made the study of them his whole life, and in particular, how it is that bees are able to fly.
And he’d cracked it.
He told me once, when he was extremely drunk, that he had solved the equation of bumblebee flight, and in so doing devised a working theory for anti-gravity technology. That is not to say that bees defy gravity, more that we do not fully understand how gravity works. This quantum chap did, and with his knowledge designed a prototype for a flying car.
The design made him a rich man; the technology was bought up and immediately suppressed.
So I asked this quantum physicist, why would anyone suppress an invention like that?
And he replied; “Why do you think? The buyer was an oil company. The damn car ran on honey.”
