This Saturday at 11 a.m., the Red Bull Flugtag will land at Bayfront Park for an afternoon of human-powered flight. Fueled by nothing more than a bong full of bad ideas and a bellyful of energy drink, 30 amateur aerospace engineers will send their homemade flying machines think pizza-pie spaceships and unicycles with wings speeding off a 30-foot flight deck. Some will soar, but most will nosedive ignobly into Biscayne Bay. Really, though, who cares? Failure is funnier, and Lord Kelvin is still wrong.
