    This is a video of a mercury-filled balloon being dropped in slow motion. Mercury, as I'm sure you're aware because we're all scientists here, is 13.5x as dense as water and can be poured directly into a balloon with a funnel to fill it up. That alone was pretty neat. But th... / Continue →

    This is a hot air balloon inspired by 'Up'. You know, because it looks like the house and balloons from the movie. Come on, this really shouldn't be that hard to understand. Unfortunately, I can tell from the look on your face you're actually having trouble comprehending. ... / Continue →

    This is a 30-meter (~98-foot) blue whale kite constructed by Peterlynn Kites. I guess it's kind of a balloon kite though because it's inflated. Want your own? Well you're in luck, because they sell them for $6,000. Or you can get a 16-meter version for $3,800. Or an 8-mete... / Continue →

    Seen here the exact moment he realizes they replaced the helium with nerve gas, a man huffs an edible dessert balloon at Alinea in Chicago. You know, because that's a real thing now. God, whatever happened to f***ing cake? First of all, a regular rubber balloon is also edibl... / Continue →

    Flubber! This is a collection of videos from Youtuber SmarterEveryDay of guys taking under-filled (so they don't break) water balloons to the face, all played in slow motion. The results are unbelievable. The results from my company's random drug test? Very believable (I f... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to take a helium balloon to the face and talk funny ride to the edge of space? Me neither. Like I told my mechanic: add rockets or GTFO. "Bloon" is a six-person pod designed by Spanish company zero2infinity that will rise to the edge of the atmosphere, powered by... / Continue →
