Made you look. Happy April Fools Day, everyone. Feel free to ASDF this when the day is through.

sometimes,this is needed to protect people on the long run.

Ansfers this topic:to liberate people,which means other people did wrong things at first,so beginning a war exect for reason 6 is stupid.

You forgot pride/nationalism. Most of the European countries that fought each other in the Industrial Era did so mainly for prestige. There's also influence, like Napoleon and how he acquired "allies" with the apparent invincibility of his army.

They fought each other because their imperialist interests conflicted. IIRC, France took a territory in the Balkans that Germany would not do without, so war broke out.

I'm pretty sure we can all agree that war is only acceptable when:

- it is a war that Advances

- Is a novel by H.G. Wells

- Is a legendary batsman and Aussie of the year

- comes after the words 'Super' and 'Robot'

# Orville & Wilbur Wright, United States — December 17, 1903

First recorded controlled, powered, sustained heavier than air flight, in Wright Flyer. In the day's fourth flight, Wilbur Wright flew 279 meters (852 ft) in 59 seconds. First three flights were approximately 120, 175, and 200 ft (61 m), respectively. The Wrights laid particular stress on fully and accurately describing all the requirements for controlled, powered flight and put them into use in an aircraft which took off from a level launching rail, with the aid of a headwind to achieve sufficient airspeed before reaching the end of the rail.
* Alberto Santos-Dumont, Brazil — October 23, 1906

the "14 Bis" at Bagatelle field, Paris. Aero Club of France certified the distance of 60 meters (197 ft); height was about 2-3 meters (6-10 ft). Winner of the Archdeacon Prize for first official flight of more than 25 meters. Described by some scholars as the first "sportsman of the air". As reported in previous years and months for Ader, Whitehead, Pearse, Jatho and Vuia, the 14-Bis flew and landed without a rail, catapult, or the presence of high winds, propelled by its own (internal combustion) engine.
Both wiki quotes, but essentially correct. My argument is that the 14-bis flew, without any help, in front of a crowd of hundreds, while the Wright's actually took off from height, and with wind: in other words, their machine was sustained in the air with an engine, but would not manage to do so without a push-start and a helping wind. Thefpre, the Wright's machine is a glider further impulsed by an engine, while Santos-Dumont's is an actual engine-powered airplane.

The Wrights had many, many remarkable achievements, but I don't think they should be credited with the invention of the airplane. The whole bike with paper wings is a running joke I have with a friend (might not be too far from the truth :P)
