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.

Make it a hundred to REALLY show Zeus how much you're supporting Ben Franklin.

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.
