3:05 to 3:35 had some sweet inventions, and those skyscraper hijinks were great.

We still don`t have human powered ornithopters :(

I love how everybody in the 1930`s thought making stuff look like a bird somehow makes it more aerodynamic.

It`s crazy what people can do when they need money.

Economic depression, it`s crazy mad what it can do to you.

Hope you`ve read about a ressource based economy if this ever happens.

Loved how something could fail so utterly back then.

Not only is your flying device going to tip over and crush you... it will also catch on fire. :D

Hey, when you got no money, might as well kill yourself trying to be a bird.

wow, the boat that flew looked sweet, and it worked. also i liked the guy with the batman-like thing built into his clothes. If u go to related videos its fashion predictions for year 2000 from the 1930s and they r like "some go so far as to say the skirt will dissapear and ladys will wear pants!" haha and they thought guys wouldnt shave and would have telephones and radios literally on their shirt. haha

Why Charles Darwin believed in evolution.

It was just hope that after he dies, man will evolve to be less stupid. He was wrong.

it looks like some of those flying contraptions took alot of time and effort, and I feel kinda bad for laughing at them, but its just so ridiculous.

the force of the flapping motion necesary to provide enough thrust to get an ornithopter off the ground is so much more than the structural integrity of the machine can handle, people seem to not realise that.
