OK, all you need is some aluminum foil, a corona wire and a few capacitors...

Did that kite come with a poop package so you can drop little presents on peoples heads?  ;D  Will you be posting the winners of the contest this year? Next year you do need the large UFO kite that beams up a small cow kite.  8)
