This is a Dell advertisement titled: “Meet Annie: The girl who could fly”
I’m glad the Wright Brother’s didn’t have a Dell computer.
Read this quote from Wilber Wright:
“For some years, I have been afflicted with the belief that flight is possible to man. My disease has increased in severity and I feel that it will soon cost me an increased amount of money, if not my life…”
This commercial even shows a clip of the Wright brother’s flying.
Thank God the Wright Brother’s Didn’t Have a Dell Computer
Instead of pursuing their affliction, the Wright Brothers could have merely done a green screen, faking flight and stopped there.
What are we telling kids today?
Don’t actually do anything, just make videos?
Sure, I might be overly dramatic, but this little girl wanted to fly.
The commercial shows her even attempting to build flying machines.
Then the little girl gives up, makes a video, and celebrates…
That’s completely unacceptable to me. Again, I say, I’m glad the Wright Brothers didn’t have that option.
I Pray my Children have Afflictions.
And, I won’t let them stop at making a video…
