akchuyally iz true.
In fact, he managed to fly nearly 2 miles before safely landing.
The emperor wasn't pleased and sentenced him to starvation.

I've been seeing BCE and CE a lot lately
Is there any difference between them and BC/AD?
#22 to #19 - xxxsonic fanxxx (08/24/2014) [-]
Not really, it's just a modern way of telling dates without having to change the numbers around. BCE means Before Common Era, it's equivalent to Before Christ, and CE means Common Era, which is equivalent to Anno Domini.

different cultures had different values.

the old egyptians already had steam-engines, but they didnt use them... because slaves were simply cheaper than engines.
in china engines were invented, but one of the rulers decided not to use them since they were so unnatural and would be against the principle of yin&yang or something like that, so it wasnt manufactured.

humanity has had a lot of cool stuff forgotten and reinvented again and again... like the led was invented in something 18xx. but nobody had a plan what to use it for so they said **** it...

"6 CE"

Did people really get butthurt enough about the birth of Jesus being referenced to replace the BC/AD system

I doubt that. If it would be true they would surely pursue this idea and create more efficient flying machines.
