Yes. Humans routinely fly, using these gadgets called airplanes and helicopters.

Sure. You just need some wings, atmosphere and a low gravity environment. Read Robert Heinlein’s classic novel, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.

humans can fly its the landing that’s the problem

Humans cannot fly unassisted, and humans cannot levitate without special effects or an elevator.

Or a jet pack.

Or read, So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish by Douglas Adams. It includes a way for humans to fly.

Lmao. Maybe in a few million years due to evolution; but no, for now they can’t, without help from an airplane, helicopter, trampoline, or human-cannonball cannon.

Or perhaps you have heard of the myth of Icarus?

He used wax and feathers (cheating).

Plus that whole falling-to-his-death thing really puts a damper on it.

Icarus fell because he thought he was smarter than his daddy. Honor thy father and mother.

But not too much, lest you find yourself in a more Oedipal situation.

Alina: They’re illusionists. They make no claim that its actual ‘magic’. They’re very clear about it being an illusion.

Can we fly

@Alina1235. I cannot understand what you mean.

@Delirium: Is it possible for my family to be more Oedipal than they already are?

delirium's avatar

As long as you’re not directly descended from the Hapsburgs, I’d probably say yes.

Zaku's avatar

The final er, straws, would seem to me to be the eyes… though you could try to reverse it for specialness.

gailcalled's avatar

@Zaku; you are subtle beyond my present understanding. Might you explain your last statement?

Zaku's avatar

@gail: Well after I was amused by Delirium’s joking remark about the Hapsburgs, I reflected in my smartypants way that I (perhaps through ignorance or forgetfulness) wasn’t aware of any Hapsburgs who had blinded themselves in fits of grief over their own tragic story, which it seemed to me would be the capstone of an Oedipal performance. So any Hapsburgs with working eyes might be thought capable of increasing their Oedipal accomplishments beyond their present condition. Tired at the time, I clumsily started with the “final straw” phrase, which I made plural for eyes, and then reflected that my phrase was doubly inaccurate in that one might attempt to add a special twist to the task of becoming completely Oedipal (and earn points for increased difficulty) by blinding oneself before performing one or more of the other elements of the tragic curse.
