How do insects fly?

With biological anti-gravity, of course.  Oh, the wings?  Just for show.The world now has conclusive, undeniable proof that the late Viktor Grebennikov, unknown Russian entomologist, discovered anti-gravity plates under the wings of an unspecified beetle.  The intrepid scientist went on to build a flying machine using these anti-gravity plates, reaching speeds “up to 25 km/sec.” While he was flying, it also made him invisible, caused time distortions, started fires, protected him from wind, moved household objects, and made a mean espresso.

I know what you’re thinking.  I didn’t believe it at first either.  But then I saw this picture, and I was sold.

Make it jump, man!  Make it jump!

    Those photos are so weird.  The ‘flying’ photo looks good until you notice that the perspective has switched, and the subject is actually closer to the camera than before.  Here’s some Google Info on Viktor Von Doom, oops, I mean Grebennikov

    Not to be a comment slut, but this does bring up a question: Can anyone explain the whole ‘bumblebees shouldn’t be able to fly’ thing

    May be…Maaay be…If I had a piece of wood and a tire pump…May be I could fly, turn invisible and rip a gaping hole in the space time continuum too… Oooh ya, we should all submit photos of ourselves with our own homemade “flying invisibility timetravel machines” one with us on it and one in the air… That would be sweet!
