This & That

The Bumblebee

Consider the story of the bumblebee:

A bumblebee is an aerodynamically unsound little fellow.  His body is far too large, his wings are far too small, and he has hair instead of feathers.  If we judge his qualifications on paper, we’d say he couldn’t possibly fly.  But not knowing this, the bumblebee flies merrily away.
