how to put out a boating fire

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.

That is one way to do it...


Either way someone had a very bad day.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

I watched him make at least a hundred and fifty passes by the burning boat. It kept catching back up. I really don't think he ever got it out, but I had to leave for work. Did anyone watch the end of the video? :-)
