What does a pair of frozen eyeballs, two nervous breakdowns and a trip to the moon have to do with the invention of the aeroplane? How is the Titanic related to the mobile phone? How is a slaughterhouse associated with the production of a car? How did a bird in a cage prompt the invention of the skyscraper? Just how did the world evolve to what it is today?
