This is a normal post Scientist have been saying this for years
But its clearly more important for young Chuck and Brad to get their fat chubby paws on a f*cking balloon than to safeguard the future of the species.
Edit: I'm not a green hippie, I just don't like seeing fat kids with balloons.

This is a normal post On at the cinema near here soon, you being serious?
I may go and watch it.

This is a normal post I do genuinely enjoy it although I think I enjoy it because I always watch it with family or mates.
You don't need to shell out on a cinema ticket though. It's usually repeated ad infinitum by Channel4/E4/More4/Film4. Just cycle through the channels and you'll hit it before you've gone through twice.

It's good, silly fun.

This is a normal post The problem is not that we use too much of it
It's that the USA is the only country that can produce it cheaply and since that means they don't make any money off it they've committed to selling off their stockpiles at rock-bottom prices to drive up the price of any remaining helium. Essentially, the market value of a balloon of helium should be around $150, given how much we need it, but the Shermans' economic policies mean that we're wasting it all doing silly voices and all that

That's a tough decision, and one I can't make lightly.

This is a normal post He says we let it float off into space
That isn't correct is it? It is lighter than air, but heavier than a vacuum. Doesn't it stick around in the upper atmosphere? We can get it later, when we need it, and have longer ladders than we do now.

This is a normal post "Heavier"?
Sadly not on a planet with Earth's mass.
Hydrogen & Helium are able to escape the atmosphere...

they'll never escape then.

This is a normal post I did not
know that. I presumed anything with a mass is heavier than anything without one, and would therefore be trapped.
(, Tue 11 Dec 2012, 11:41, Reply)
This is a normal post ??? I don't understand... what hasn't got mass?
I think planets the size of Jupiter are massive enough to prevent hydrogen & helium escaping.
Also, *checks wikipedia* how close you are to a star affects it too: so the gas molecules will be more energetic.

This is a normal post I'm not arguing!
I thought a molecule of helium was, by it's very existance, heavier than the vacuum of space and would therefore be trapped by gravity at some height. I'm no expert and if you say I'm wrong, I'm wrong.

This is a normal post I think it gets enough escape velocity to get away
Perhaps at the height at which it stops rising up through the stuffmospheres the gravity is insufficient to keep it in...

...maybe. But as you say, bigger ladders!

This is a normal post If gravity worked like that we'd be permanently stuck to anything more massive than ourselves.
Gravity is very, very weak.
