A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me?
I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
The woman below replied, "You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground.
You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."
"You must be a programmer," said the balloonist.
"I am" replied the woman,"How did you know?"
"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost.
Frankly, you've not been much help so far."
The woman below responded, "You must be a manager."
"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
"Well," said the woman,"You don't know where you are or where you are going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you

In Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction (1994), Mia ODs on Vincent’s heroin stash after she mistakes it for cocaine because cocaine is given in a baggie and heroin is in a balloon. Lance warns Vincent of this earlier in the film “I’m outta balloons. Is a baggie alright?”

Shitting balloon dog, me, colored pencils, 2020
Eight years ago, when I was fifteen, a few friends and I sent a camera-equipped weather balloon into the upper stratosphere above southern California. I recently had the photos cleaned up, and they look fantastic!
Why did Super Mario Odyssey never receive any DLC other than Balloon World?
I feel like this game is arguably one of the best titles on the switch, if not one of the best Mario titles of all time. It blows my mind that Nintendo didn't take the opportunity to make DLC lands like Delfino Plaza or something similar. I know I personally would have purchased that type of content instantly and I feel as if the game could have capitalized harder on its success.
PSA: Balloons in Animal Crossing are currently bugged to where if you pop 300, you can't obtain any more. reddit.com/r/AnimalCrossi…

Poorly-timed photo of 2 water balloons being burst
Bear posted a photo of him doing whippets (knock off version of nitrous.) The balloons aren't tied and you can see the old balloons on the floor around his feet. The whippet container is in his hand along with a deflated balloon.

You guys!! I had no idea that the hot air balloon would be so cute. I am DYING 😭😭😭 They keep waving to each other and I am just a puddle from the wholesomeness.
Edit 3.0: thanks for the gold kinda stranger I didn't expect this post to blow up! My life started growing up in a small farm in northern Kansas. My father was a farmer we didn’t have much and my best toy I got growing up was a pig bladder blown up like a balloon that I could play around with
Remember hopping into the balloon in SSA and just vibing with Flynn while he gave you a tour of the ruins? Simple, yet charming. Always makes me smile. 🙂
This popped into my head when I saw the new balloon slimes, hope you enjoy this dumb little meme!
Protestors with balloons
You should be ashamed - I'm appalled at the amount of balloons out here. Breonna's life is worth more than littering our city. Those balloons have to land somewhere and our wildlife will pay for your empty gesture.
Event organizers were notified multiple times not to release balloons and went through with it anyway. I stand by the protest 110%, but Louisville's protest leadership is willfully ignorant and trashy af it seems.
EDIT: To those conscience enough to not release balloons today, Kentucky wildlife thanks you. To those making excuses, willful ignorance is trashy.
I just give up on these bcs I can never find the last balloon
