Mar 18th, 2015

Tie bits of meat to the poles is doing something foolish and stupid 

1500 BC

According to legend , the King Kai Kawus of Persia, also known as the "the foolish king " flew on a golden throne carried by four eagles. The king tied bits of meat to poles attached to throne. As the hungry eagles tried to fly up to the food, they carried the throne up with them.

However the eagles eventually got tired and the throne crashed to Earth.
