Ben Franklin (also known as Dr. Benjamin Franklin) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. He was a noted polymath, an expert in various fields, inventor, and diplomat.
In 1749, Ben Franklin was working on an experiment to confirm the correlation between electricity and lightning during a storm with a kite. However, a demon stole a pair of shears from him. Franklin substituted the shears with a key and continued on with his experiment.
