Goes to show, no good deed goes unpunished.
Always look out after your own sleep, food and water first.
Never know when the other guy will flake out or the boat will break.

But of course you know that and were just trying to be a good friend and got bit.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
