The centuries that we spent devising physics, mathematics, chemistry, engineering, metallurgy...
All of our combined knowledge and technological advancements as a species
were to finally culminate in the creation of a machine of such flawless beauty
that it now clearly stands out as human civilization's crowning achievement:
And upon its completion, those present
were unable to do anything but stand and marvel
in wonder and in awe at the sleek,
black aerodynamic perfection...
That was Airwolf.
— Ernest Cline, from his spoken word album "The Geek Wants Out"
