    Hm yes! :D
    All of my future kites will only speak AE. ^^
    Nooo! But I still don’t understand why the British people who ‘moved out’ of Europe changed all of their units…

    Does saying “SI Units” bring up the rest of the worlds’ superiority complex?

  10. ryanmail2004

    “strange US units”? You just need any reason to bring up your inferiority complex. US is invading your kites now!

    Hm? :o

    Awesome kite! Now you won’t need to worry about buying those fancy-expensive kites from Wal-Mart or anywhere else, you can just make your own!

    This is awesome, I like the one that the Brazilian man made with the 7 other kites attached. Brilliant idea!

    And again I’m glad you live in Canada!
    What an effort it would have been to build this kite with the strange US-units…
    Thanks for sharing! :)
