china The earliest known kite was from 2300 B.C. they were invented in China No one can tell for sure where the first kite was made. The is no doubt that the kite originated in Asia but if China claims to have the most ancient writings about kites, the Malay people (nowadays spread mainly in an area… comprising Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines, are actually just as likely, or even more likely, to have invented the kite. As seafarers, their knowledge of the wind, lines and sails materials was much greater than that of the Chinese. Even before paper was invented, in areas where fabric was not available or too costly, the most ancient types of kites may have had sails made from large single or assembled leaves, or from any other woven natural material similar to those used for making boat sails. The tradition for making these kites is still alive in Indonesia nowadays, notably in Sulawesi and Lombok islands. In many aspects the kite traditions of the Malay are more diverse and stronger than those of the Chinese. This is why, although there will never be any real evidence, some kite experts believe the kite first appeared in South East Asia rather than in mainland China. (MORE)

Answer: A kite or (deltoid) is a quadrilateral with two pairs of s…ides. But the key is how they're assembled to make the kite. Each pair is connected at the ends, and then the "other" ends of each connected pair is connected together.

Kiting in RPGs is a process of keeping a monster (mob) at a distance so they can't do damage to you while you (the character) damage it. In WoW the character classes most able to do this are: Hunters, Warlocks, Mages, Priests and Shaman. (Paladins can do it to Undead, Rogues don't they use stun-lock…, Warriors don't have anything for distance.) Hunters use freezing and frost traps to keep anything at bay, scare beast to kite beasts. Warlocks use fear on any mobs. Priests use psychic scream on mobs. Mages use a modified version; frost bolt slows the mob and if some special abilities proc, freeze a target before it ever gets to them, giving the mage time to damage it or teleport away. Shaman can drop a totem that slows the mob down and they can attack from a distance or run as needed. (MORE)
