    This is a shot of an unknown cosplayer at an unknown convention (anybody recognize those walls?) wearing Majora's Mask, with the moon hovering overhead. You know, I remember when Majora's Mask first came out my parents were concerned I was too stupid to grasp the time-changing... / Continue →

    This is the Balloon Dog Light available from Firebox (plus maybe other places -- searching for the best deal is 2/3 the fun of internet shopping!). It looks like the balloon dog a clown might twist at a kid's birthday party. Do kids even have clowns at their birthday parties ... / Continue →

    This is a giant gallery of the balloon insects and animals twisted by Japanese balloon artist Matsumoto-san. A lot of them are unbelievable. Just think: if this guy is already making things so impressive, just imagine what he could create if he ever found out there are more ar... / Continue →

    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 short video showing you how to make a smartphone case out of a balloon. Will it protect your phone's screen from a fall? No clue, but it will completely block the microphone, speaker, headphones, charging port and camera, so that's pretty cool. Keep going for the v... / Continue →

    Nice video game console collection. This is a short video of how Austin Woods keeps track of his pet turtle -- with a helium balloon. Apparently Austin was tired of his turtle getting lost around his apartment, so he decided to rectify the situation. Wow, what a handsome lit... / Continue →

    This is a video from laser lover (and possible balloon hater) Scott Stevenson popping 100 balloon with a powerful burning purple laser. You may remember the previous video from Scott where he did the same trick except the laser was green and the balloons were red. That made f... / Continue →

    Now listen, I know what you're thinking: "WOW, NICE SHOT J.J. ABRAMS." But shockingly this isn't a scene from the new Star Trek movie, it's actually from one of the video cameras aboard 12-year old Lauren Rojas' "Hello Kitty to Outerspace" science fair project. Me? I made a ... / 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 →

    Now I know what you're thinking, and no, this isn't a scene from Hoarders. It's the world's most complicated Rube Goldberg machine built by Purdue University, who just beat their own record for the Rube Goldeberg machine with the most steps. The last one had 232. This one? ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Geekologie Reader Scott igniting a firecracker inside a balloon with a laser. Does the balloon pop? YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO WATCH TO FIND OUT. Ooooooooor just keep reading. Nope! Hit the jump for the I exploded a firecracker between my teeth one time true... / 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 →

    Because this is what happens. Plus you ruin a perfectly good backup condom. Or, in your case, balloon animal. "Whatever bro, I used to date a chick and one time we were getting so hot and heavy at Makeout Point we ended up using a Doritos bag." That...is not something I'd b... / Continue →

    This is a giant balloon Spinosaurus created by Larry Moss. Larry calls his balloon art "airigami" and "the art of folding air" (balloon artists: they can be pretentious). I just call it balloon art. Also, great for a kid's birthday party. Hey mister hey mister -- I want a w... / Continue →

    You know that movie 'Up' by Pixar? The one about the crotchety old man and chubby boyscout? Yeah, I haven't actually seen it (somebody said it'd be too sad for me AND I'M DELICATE LIKE EXPLOSIVE GEL). Well, to promote their upcoming television series 'How Hard Can It Be?', N... / Continue →

    According to Dr. Kristen Gates, all we need to do is attach a giant drag-causing balloon to the defunct spacejunk, then sit back and watch it burn as it slowly enters the earth's atmosphere. Interesting concept Doctor, but I suggest we keep exploring our options until we come ... / Continue →
