Img.427 from A. Możajski (#D1)

Img.427 (#D1): Here is a photo I took of myself in 1988 at a memorial put up in New Zealand to Richard Pearse and his plane. (The person standing by the car is me, i.e. Dr. Eng. Jan Pająk. Notice also that my old car "Ford Laser 1200 cc" visible in this photo has witnessed many oddities of our physical world. For example, the same car is also present on Img.548 (#H2) from the web page named Seismograph, on Img.437 (#D2) from the web page named Newzealand and on Img.479 (#B2a) from the web page named Petone. It served me faithfully for as many as 24 years, i.e. from 1987, until the end of 2011 when, to my unspeakable grief, it simply disintegrated from old age, consumed by the sea-salt-saturated air of New Zealand and the town of Petone). The monument shown above stands near a small New Zealand town called "Pleasant Point." Pearse built an airplane that was the first in New Zealand, and the second in the world. Richard Pearse's plane took to the air on March 31, 1902, that is, about 20 years after the plane of the Pole/Russian, Alexander Mozhaisky, but still about one year before the Wright Brothers' plane from the US. Items #D1. and #D2. of this web page Możajski describe in more detail the nicknames and dispatch to the madhouse that Richard Pearse received for this incredible achievement from his own countrymen, i.e. other New Zealanders, who enthusiastically undertook towards him the fulfillment of the conditions triggered by the immorality of the so-called "inventive impotence" (i.e. that impotence in the creation of technical progress, which is discussed e.g. in items #H1 and #B4.4. of this web page). Of course, Richard Pearse was NOT the only inhabitant of New Zealand who experienced on his own skin how mechanisms of this "inventive impotency" work.
