A French guy who had lived among the pygmies and made a movie about them told me this story.
They were all sitting around in the jungle, and an airliner flew over way up in the sky. The French guy pointed at the airliner and said "My people made that machine so people can travel from one place to another much faster than you can imagine. You have to admit that my people are very skilled."
An old pygmy looked at him and said "Your people must be very unhappy if they have to work so hard to get away from where they are."
