Ok I am not 100% what to make of this..

Attaching razor blades and nails to “craptastic” plastic kites sounds fun.. errr… sorta.

I always try and spread the word about safe kiting and that you can really hurt someone with a stunt like this; however, at the same time this appeals to me in a geeky way…(I am also not sure how accurate the history is.. but take it for what it’s worth) ..

enjoy!
