We all know the story of how Orville and Wilbur Wright invented the first successful airplane. But not everyone knows that they had a brilliant younger sister, Katharine Wright, who basically saved their asses, or that their relationship with her was — how to put this? — gross. Gross and weird.
The Wright siblings grew up in a fairly normal home (give or take their bone-gathering hobby and some creepy group-marriage vibes). But, as drunk historian Lauren Lapkus points out, Katharine proved herself when her brothers couldn’t get their plane to work. Thanks to her persistence — not to mention her fluency in German — the guys went down in history as aviation pioneers.
And sure, there was still some jealousy on Orville’s part when Katharine finally got married. But hey, that’s family for you.
