In Pakistan. I just heard it on the radio. Apparently kite flying is very deadly out there, because people keep dying because of the string. Most retarded thing I ever heard.

That is weird, people can't fly kite's because of the string? How do people die from the string of a kite? Maybe the kite destracts the airplanes over there.

Officials claim the ban is due to injuries resulting from people using metal kite strings, and due to deaths resulting from kite flyers falling off rooftops

From the article. This is the kind of news I would think, that would be hard to find in Pakistan. Do they know how to fly a kite over there? I wouldn't have thought flying a kite could be so dangerous.

Ha, ha, ha, those crazy Pakistanis.

Next thing you know, they'll be banning breathing because of the damage carbon dioxide does to the environment.

That's kind of stupid to ban kite flying. If they're so worried about people falling off their roofs, then just make a rule against that....I have a sudden urge to push somebody off a rooftop. >.>
