Ancient Greeks discovered aero-dynamics



It's a little known fact that the ancient Greeks not only invented the Olympic games and democracy but that they also discovered aero-dynamics.
Reading this story today about space age gear for athletes triggered this revelation in my mind.
It is a well known fact that the Greeks participated in the original Olympic games completely naked. You can stop wondering why. It's because they discovered aero-dynamics.
In a similar vein, the ancient Greeks, also invented the "Gymnasium", which is a word derivative from the Greek for naked "gymnos".

I look forward to the day when the Olympic games follow in the true spirit of the ancient Greeks and we can all watch the athletes in all their naked glory instead of relying on those Olympic athlete calendars for the privilege.
