Kite Flying- When someone gets disgusted with you and wants you to go away, they often say, "Go fly a kite." It's a polite way of saying, "Go to hell." This infers that kite flying is a decidedly negative thing to do. If this is true then why do people do it?

There are at least two possible reasons why someone would fly a kite. The first is that they are simply intellectually inept to understand the fallacy of such an activity. The second is that the negative factor involves the generation of a powerful malevolent force, thus kite flying is actually a satanic ritual that is used by devil worshipers to conjure evil spirits to wreak havoc on society.

Proponents cite the practice of this ritual by none other than Benjamin Franklin, who conducted mystical experiments with his hellish kite that brought forth the magical manifestation of electricity, which was later used by a chair that executed people. Kites symbolize the devil flying through the sky with his tail flapping in the wind, like a puppet master controlling whoever holds the string to which the kite is attached.

The kite flyer is at the mercy of the kite and is forced to go out into the wind to do his master's bidding, raising the demon ever upward then crashing it to the ground is a metaphorical gesture symbolizing the senselessness of it all.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
