I knew someone that thought he could fly, as you can imagine, it didn't go to well for him.

Well, it's not "weird", it's more like "Dude, have you caught on yet that you're not funny?"

I dunno, let's do it like the mama birds do it--Push him off a roof and find out.

The large reptile design, I didn't come up with it. It might need to be mechanical

The humming bird design

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyqY64ovjfY

P.S The ability to take off at any place without a run way

Yes even birds do crash, but can we flap our wings and fly with air bags to reduce our weight? With an automatic guiding system, that would take us anywhere

^ this guy used gas turbine engines, six of them each outputting 22kg of thrust.

and then you got Yves Rossy, jetpack with wings and 4 turbines.

Lol, birds and all flying creatures, surprisingly simple concept, but so hard to achieve

>> Yes this reminds me of when i worked in a pre-school it was super-hero week all the 5-6 yr.olds got to dress as their fav. hero
-anyhow to make a long story short- this one boy dressed as Superman figured he could fly yup maybe
-he saw superman flying figured he could do it? So he climbed the top of the high bars and before any of us could react
-he jumped (ouch) the poor kid broke his wrist it could have been worse.. long story short we can't fly Lol.

> my favorite birds are owls the have sharp tallons and i like the high pitched hoot sounds they make haha

I find it funny how we cant fly but also are unable to touch the ground (look up atoms and magnetic fields for reference). To be technical, we hover with bipedal movement.

So you mean like an Ornithopter. They tried that shit way back in the 1800's, human flapping winged flight, they figured that humans are too heavy.
