    Because pigs DID fly, when launched from catapults over castle walls to spred disease durning sieges.
    .
    Though they were dead at the time.

    Bumblebees are also not supposed to be aerodynamically able to fly.

    re: ashburn

    I love it when a scientist makes a claim like that with a straight face. The idea of claiming something is impossible when it is commonly observed never made any sense to me.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    I don’t think the scientist involved (whose name never seems to come up) was trying to make an argument about bumblebees not being able to fly but rather about the inadequacy of the then-current scientific model of what’s required for flight.
     
    It’s similar to saying “Well, if 2 objects of different weights fall at the same speed, then Aristotle was wrong!”

    Pigs still do fly – the voice of Yoda in Star Trek is by Frank Oz, the voice of Ms. Piggy. Yes Virginia, there really are Pigs n Space.
