Ben Franklin VS. Zeus

By SharpWriter
In 1752 before Ben Franklin invented Pizza, Gameboy, the iPad2 or Mexican food he was contemplating how to conquer electricity. Being the genius he was he decided go get it at its source, this being Zeus. Strapping himself to a kite, and equipping some homemade lightning claws he ascended through the clouds and into the realm of the Gods to battle it out with Zeus. This is a painting capturing the exact moment the battle started.

This is weird as heck and I am fine with that.

In an era before Gritty, F Around and Find Out with Philadelphia meant dealing with Ben.

Ah, the two most libido-poisoned men in Western literature! This is one fight I will absolutely not be tuning in for. No judgement, though; you do you, if you're into that.

If he was able to fashion his own lightning claws, then I think he had already meaningfully conquered electricity at that point.

Make it a hundred to REALLY show Zeus how much you're supporting Ben Franklin.
Zeus has finally met someone who's libido surpasses his own

I would like to think that Ben has no control of the kite and he just keeps going up then hovers back down to the ground.
