Hello and welcome the the rant.. episode 2 of my VERY RANDOM CURRENT THOUGHTS..
I decided to make a fresh new skin for the rants, hope you all like it! I love how simplistic it is and the bright colors really satisfy me.

Also speaking of the skin, I was just looking at the butterflies. These butterflies I have here, they are all of the bright orange variant. I wonder how it’s like to fly? What are the necessary steps before talking flight? What does cause animals, or insects, to fly actually?
I wonder if humans can ever fly without the use of airplanes or helicopters but I’m guessing that didn’t work out. XD Even if it did I’m sure the wings will be ginormous!

very interesting answers! This was really an eye-opener. Thanks so much for sharing! :D
(2) cultures that don't exist anymore? i dunno. why am i talking about this again? does any of this make sense? the more and more i talk about it, the more i get confused. maybe i should stop lol. ok- ok- thats enough arcaena.
completely unrelated thing that also is related to this topic:

if you think about it, english has so many phrases that don't make sense. kinda like oxymorons and that stuff. you know how people say "birds eye view"? if birds evolve and lose their wings, would we keep using that phrase? would anyone even say "birds eye view" anymore? or will it continue to be used? maybe thats why there are weird phrases in our language. or in any language! it used to make sense, but now the context doesn't exist, leaving a messed up sentence with /some/ meaning behind it but no /backstory/.

but then again, humans haven't lived that long to see evolution of animals yet, right? so everything i just said could be false. but could be true in the future! maybe the phrases come from old religions or (1)
google: birds fly because /they can/ and because it helps them survive and thrive.
me: what the heck does that mean?

i can see many downsides to flying, but also pros to it too. it can help them spot food, but it also helps them be spotted! what would happen if everything just loses its wings and has to walk? would the ground floor be crowded? predators will be forced to search the ground level rather than from the air, so maybe more animals become prey? if you were a bird searching for food while flying, trees and bushes can cover animals below, creating a shelter for them. but without wings, well, you can see right through the "shelter".
technically speaking, we /can/ fly, with gliders. haha. but wings? mechanical ones? irl elytras? dang, that would be cool! but also very chaotic as that might cause more pollution likes cars do. or just air traffic, which could effect animals that practically /live/ in the air. i just realized that if certain things are invented, some bad stuff could happen ;w;
sorry for my rambling LOL but i just love questions like these!
omgie, actually that is such a good thought!

what does flying feel like?
i would guess flying feels like ziplining, but with more euphoria. i could be wrong because things that have wings, are probably so used to flying, they don't realize they do it. for instance, worms and snails might look at us and thing "wow... how does it feel to walk? its probably so fun!", but its just a daily thing to us.

why do things fly?
maybe it's a defense mechanism from predators... but there are eagles that also fly. i guess it's easier to fly than walk or run because it's faster? i guess small bugs or animals can get trampled and squashed when they stick to the ground so maybe they just sPrOuTeD wings for less dangerous travel? but then there are bigger things that fly too...
