Oct. 9, 1903:

The New York Times wrote, "The flying machine which will really fly might be evolved by the combined and continuous efforts of mathematicians and mechanicians in from one million to ten million years."

A bicycle mechanic named Orville Wright wrote, "We unpacked rest of goods for new machine."

Never lose hope and never give up on your dreams!  The Times be damned!

If I had a million dollers...

I'd exchange it for 100,000,000 pennies and dump them into a big room and swim through them like Scrooge McDuck!  If you do the math:


pi x radius^2 x thickness x 100,000,000= 1597.087 cu. ft.
=11'-8" cubed

Which means that I could fill a room that is 12' x 12'  with a pool of pennies that is 12' deep!  It won't be as big as Uncle Scrooge's money bin but it's a start!
