I am going to fly...

    It might sound stupid, but I'm determined to rig something up with so many helium ballons that I can either jump tens of feet in the air at a time, or enought so that I will just float indefinitely...One cubic foot of helium can lift 28.2 grams. A 12-foot in diameter baloon can lift 57 pounds. A 24-footer can lift 455 pounds! So If I do the math, determining on the person's weight, I'm sure that I can pull this off within the next couple of months...I'll need lots of money. Be prepared for pictures soon enough! I will do this, I swear. What does everyone else think?

    HOLY SHIT!!!!! DO IT DO IT DO IT!!!!!

    do you know how neat that would be to fly like that around your town. if you are going to use one huge balloon you should also have a gas release and a spare gas tank connected to a valve so you can control your alititude.

    You got my seal of approval

    Depending on what region of the U.S. you live in, local bystanders might mistake you for a Kamikaze Taliban Balloon Terrorist*, and shoot at you. Be careful.

    that sounds fun... i wanna do it...

    i'd want it setup so that i can walk with it, then just hop up a bit and float up like 20-40ft and clear like 50yrds in length.

    A while ago someone got lifted hundreds of meters into the air when they were trying to pull something like that off. They fucked up and could not get down, so if you are going to try it get a parachute at least. The person eventually got down after they popped single ballons at a time just enough to let him down slowly.

    Wait I never said any of that strap a video camera to your head and do it then post the video on 12oz for a bunch of unknown people to laugh at you..................DO IT NOW:D :D :D
