Icarus mythology fun

Good-evening ADA forum,

Though some mythology notes are fitting today with the Icarus wallet coming to mind - take the irony and ending to the story for what its worth.
Random Icarus info quoting from greekmythology.com [not sure how accurate their version is]

Icarus Death

Although he was warned, Icarus was too young and too enthusiastic about flying. He got excited by the thrill of flying and carried away by the amazing feeling of freedom and started flying high to salute the sun, diving low to the sea, and then up high again.

His father Daedalus was trying in vain to make young Icarus to understand that his behavior was dangerous, and Icarus soon saw his wings melting.

Icarus fell into the sea and drowned. The Icarian Sea, where he fell, was named after him and there is also a nearby small island called Icaria."

On another note:
Many may already know as well - Musician/Artist Jack White of The White Stripes composed a small team that named their balloon carrying the first playing record turntable into space Icarus.

So if Charles ever mentions anything about visiting Icaria??? :man_shrugging:

Cheers - I have no idea what will happen with ADA
