OK some folks are still being silly and tethering themselves to kites, here's a guy on a small beamer.


mercifully short, inevitable ending, doesn't look like it was too bad.

nothing too extreme here, just to show that kites and smarts don't necessarily unite, as much as we wish they would...

never been compelled to WANT to be tether like that , truly do not understand it.

and that kite has weak vertical at window apex.

it seems that they must be thinking (def an assumption for sure)

"we don't understand how it really works SO LETS do this"

glad they used a short tether.
