“This left several readers wondering: Just how many balloons would it take to lift a house?”
Really? Did you get a lot of emails from readers, wondering how they could lift their house with balloons? Did you have people doing experiments right away, hopelessly tying balloons to their window shutters? I guess a lot of stupid people read the Toronto Star. So, how many balloons would it take to lift a house?
They say it’s between 100 thousand – 23.5 million.
That's like saying it's somewhere in the ballpark of 'a few' to 'a ton'. So, long story short, they have no friggin' clue.
(Try getting that two minutes back.)
RANDOM BONUS: REMEMBER THAT PIZZA?
I'm ordering pizza the other night and the order confirmation screen comes up.
Place another order? We just ordered! Who the hell is this button for?
Guy 1 - “Hey, we just ordered the pizza. Now all we have to do is wait.”
Guy 2 - “I’m starving, let’s order another one.”
Guy 1 - “Okay!”
