MacBook Air is so thin it almost flew away

I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but I had my MacBook Air sitting with me outside. It was on my lap and um, idk if the wind was too strong or what but, the Air almost blew away, I had to catch it.

Is there anything that protects against this?

Don't use it outside when it's windy.

Find this very hard to believe tbh, its light sure, but unless the screen was literally acting as a sail I just can't picture it.

I think the name AIR was sufficient warning.

... or if you do, a couple drops of superglue will keep that baby securely on your lap!

I was also thinking about lag screwing it to a picnic table.
