Go Fly A Kite!
Remember when "Go fly a kite!" was just an innocuous way to say "buzz off", or "get lost", or "bite me, moron"?
Well now it's apparently a DEATH THREAT. 19 DEAD in Pakistan's kite flying festival? Is this a joke? I mean come on... You've got to be kidding, right? Clink that link and read the details, which include killer kite string neck slashings, random gun fire, and a soccer like death trampling to catch a stray kite. That's right seven people died trying to catch a stray kite.
This is not kite flying as I recall it. Maybe I never did it right.
