Re: HiFloat + Balloon Time kits

I've also found that disposable 80/20 tanks have produced somewhat lackluster float times for 17" and under balloons. I've had some luck half-tying balloons, and then adding more helium after an...

Re: Are certain balloon finishes bigger than other finishes?

I've also found that for a given size class (11", 16", etc), jewel/crystal colors tend to get the biggest, followed by standard, then metallic/pearl. Chrome (and betallatex/sempertex new reflex...

Re: question ozone machines and balloons

Controlled (and non-inhaled) applications of ozone seem to be effective for external wound care, sterilization, and a few other applications. So using ozone to disinfect your household while you're...

Re: question ozone machines and balloons

Also, nothing will cure a cold, but if you want to try some remedies that have scientific backing, you could gargle with salt water, try taking zinc lozenges, antihistamines, and decongestants, and...

Re: question ozone machines and balloons

Short term exposure to ozone causes lung irritation, which at minimum will make your cold worse. Longer term exposure can lead to permanent lung damage. Long story short, you in no way want to be in...

Re: What is the most over inflated balloon you've seen?

Sometimes small balloons go above and beyond when it comes to handling overinflation - I've got a bunch of 9"s right now that reliably neck out without a whole lot of fuss.

Re: Decoration for balloon play?

As an aside I low key love it when balloons are tied/tethered to something. It's sorta like "you're not going anywhere now" :D

Re: Colour and type, ignoring size

I do tend to think that different colors have slightly different smells - qualatex standard yellow vs any other standard color is an example that stands out in my mind.

Re: Colour and type, ignoring size

Black is definitely up there for me, red is a close second. Otherwise I'm into seasonally matched colors (orange & black around halloween, primary colors in the summer, etc). I do also love...

Re: Gaming on Balloons

Maybe by TES 10 they'll have worked out facial models and animations \_(ツ)_/. Still excited for the next one, that series is a longstanding favorite.

Nice! I've been waiting for a new big RPG, hoping The Outer Worlds delivers. I just wanna be a big queer space wizard again! Overwatch was about the most FPS I've managed, and that was as a tank main...

Re: Gaming on Balloons

Don't get me wrong, I can definitely see the appeal! Random pops don't shake me up as much as they used to, and I'm kinda into them after, but I'm a long way from deliberate ones >.<

Hey, another WoWs/War Thunder player! I also play a fair amount of League of Legends and used to be pretty into Overwatch. Otherwise it's mostly misc strategy/simulation games.

Re: Gaming on Balloons

I tend to keep balloons separate from my work as I'm prone to getting distracted otherwise, but I do sometimes decorate my desk at home with (overinflated) clusters.

Re: Gaming on Balloons

@balloons4life highly recommended! Tuftex 24 are a good choice for that, though I've been going with 36 due to the height of my desk. What do you usually play?

Just thought I'd share - lately I've been super into playing PC games while sitting on a 24-36" balloon. The extra stimulation and the thought that the balloon might not hold up definitely get me...

Re: Genuine Question: How to correctly inflate a Qualtex 24" balloon please?

For context I'm also a nonpopper and definitely afraid of popping. I'd echo LoonLover1999 about the effect of age and poor storage on Q24s. That said, Q24s I've had that are so affected tend to pop...

Re: Virtual Reality balloons question

Both of you did an awesome job getting the shapes right! A lot of mainstream video games seem to phone it in when it comes to rendering balloons.
