In a massively hugely super-ultra-amazing discovery... scientists have invented a way to trasmit electricity wirelessly!!!
This of course would be way more super-ultra-amazing if Tesla hadn't done it 100 years ago.
We look at our fancy toys and do-dads and commit the same error over and over... each generation thinks its the smartest to ever live... and all that came before were varying degrees of neandrathals.
I'm going to break this to you gently...
Humans are no smarter today than they were 1000 years ago.
