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.

Great vid!

So if you're using someone else's money, it doesn't cost anything!

Re: What it costs to sail around the world

I have not watched the video yet but the answer is:

How much you got?

If you have $60k in the bank you could do it.

With $6mill you could eat better while doing it.

Kinda like "what it costs to go to college?" Will tell you when I'm done...

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Life is a short journey, filled with emptiness and pain. Get all the sailing and booty you can.
