I'm working on a decent post, but here's something that I thought about while watching Drunk History on YouTube.
The story was about Ben Franklin and the "flying the kite in the lighting storm." And I was thinking, the last time I flew a kite, we couldn't get it to stay up for longer than 3-4 minutes. How the heck did Franklin get a paper kite to stay in the air long enough to test anything, let alone in the rain, and on top of that with an old fashion key attached to it? Anyone have any ideas?
