Your boy was taking a flight from Madrid to Paris this weekend (because my life is dope), and it reminded me of this Louis CK bit, which always reinforced my thought that flying’s the CRAZIEST thing that we do, and also the thing we take most for granted.
Really, think about it. The Good Lord didn’t intend for us to fly. He said “no, that’s for birds. But if y’all figure that out, then good for you”.
YET WE FIGURED IT OUT.
We travel through the sky! For millions of years, humans were restricted to the ground. But now, it’s the most normal thing in the world. That we travel through the sky like Khaleesi’s dragons. Like defying gravity is just something that we do nowadays. Take a minute to appreciate that.
