The Bet: The Experiment: The Horse Motion.
Former California Governor Leland Standford made a wager with his friends. He bet peoples belief that horses always kept one foot on the ground was so false! Proving that horses actually take all four feet off the ground while running.
When his friends challenged his theory, what better marker then a wager? Using a horse, early model cameras, and a few willing participants changed the way we now view horses and motion pictures.
The idea of being able to stop time and then put it back in motion.
The Legend of Gustav Whitehead. The first person to fly?
Legend has it that The Wright Brother’s were the first to fly but recent evidence has shown that historians may have gotten it wrong, Gustav Whitehead was the first to create an aircraft. The Wright brothers did however make it popular by providing photographic evidence.
The Wright Brothers
While history did give credit to the Wright Brothers it may have been rightfully so! They’re responsible for making a sustainable aircraft that eventually transformed into the air crafts we have today.
Our wretched species is so made that those who walk on the well-trodden path always throw stones at those who are showing a new road.
“Throughout history, people with new ideas—who think differently and try to change things—have always been called troublemakers.”
“I see no advantage in these new clocks. They run no faster than the ones made 100 years ago.”
Do not get obsolete like an old technology, keep innovating yourself.” -Sukant Ratnakar.
