Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread
Does anyone remember exactly what sank his boat?
I saw it when it first came out so I don't remember everything.
I remember he fixed the hole from the container.
His boat apparently did a 360 after that.
When he left the boat the seas were calm.
Where exactly was the hole that sank the boat and how did it happen?
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.
