Ben Franklin VS. Zeus by SharpWriter 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.

But in recognition of Ben's valiant effort Zeus gave him the powers of electricity and the two agreed to get together once a year in order to battle one another.

I frickin love this! Benjamin Franklin was an awesome polymath (multi-skilled person), he discovered electricity, the positive and negative charge, wrote music, political leader who founded USA with his other multi-talented buddies en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin… ;)
