This TED talk clip reminded me of an old myth about the bumblebee. The myth says that the bumblebee, through the laws of aerodynamics, should not be able to fly. its wing size relative to the beats per second that it flaps those wings, should not be able to put the bumblebee into flight. But we know that it does fly – so how is that possible? The answer is simple: Because nobody ever told it that it can’t.
