look up November 24, 2008Posted by faelix in curi-ocity.
Why are we so fascinated with looking up to see planes, or helicopters, or cranes lifting loads?
I walked down the street today, and all the traffic on the road was stopped as the crane on the building site lifted its load. And there were a bunch of people on both sides of the road who had stopped to look up at the crane and the load it was lifiting. Do we watch because we’re waiting to see if it’s going to drop?
