How Many Balloons to Lift a Child

Ever Wondered How Many Balloons?

Tying a balloon onto your child's wrist at a birthday party hardly gives a parent reason to fret. But one geek dad decided it would be fun to figure out just how many He (Helium for us lay persons) filled balloons it would take to lift his child into flight. Basing his calculations, the daddy figured he needed 1,143 helium injected balloons to hoist a clothed 30 pound 2-year-old boy.

Next time you're at a kiddie soirée ask your fellow partygoers, "How many balloons do you think it would take to get Johnny off the ground?"
