Montgolfier Brothers Haiku

Hark, fellow Frenchmen!

Come check out our sick balloon.

This shit will be lit.

The Montgolfier brothers staged their first public demonstration of their marvelous hot air balloon 235 years ago today. The balloon traveled 2 km, went up 2 km, with the flight itself lasting ten minutes. There is a direct line of descent from their remarkable achievement to that brat kicking your seat on a transcontinental flight.

If you liked the haiku, or would like to request one on a specific topic, please consider sharing the blog, or making a donation via Patreon or PayPal. Thanks kindly!
