One Skate In Front of the Other

We know the wheel was invented by a bunch of cavemen thousands of years ago, but that wasn’t the end of it. It took centuries for people to see all the objects that could work – or work better – with wheels attached, resulting in all the cars, trucks, pulleys, and all our other machinery that uses spinny round things. Roller skates just showed up in the last couple of centuries: one version came out in 1760 but folks didn’t take to it, probably because they kept falling down. Then on this day in 1869, apparently Isaac Hodgson filed a patent for his roller skate, and the rest is history. Now we have sports played entirely on skates, like roller hockey, speed skating and roller derby. All of these go faster on wheels, but are a lot harder than playing on your regular old feet.
