The number of balloons on Flying Pikachu are insufficient to provide the requisite lift.
An average balloon(1) holds about 14L of helium(2)(3). 1L of helium can lift about 1 gram of weight. The 7 balloons on Flying Pika therefore provide about 98 grams of lift.
An average Pika is 6kg(4), and would therefore require 429 balloons to lift it off the ground.

I was just watching the first 48 and I do watch it occasionally and the amount of families that let go of all these helium balloons is crazy. I get that they are trying to honor a loved one or remember them but all they are doing is littering. Fish and birds and turtles eat those balloons wen they come come hundreds or even thousands of miles away and die. So instead of honoring their loved one they are causing more death.
I won't stand to be spoke to in that tone of voice
So if you listen to Helium, at 3:54, what sounds like a warped version of "Dreamland" begins to play. If you pay attention though, you'll realize the lyrics don't quite match up with the original. I know some people just want to know what they are so I've put them at the bottom, but I feel like I have to go into how I figured it out because the work that went into that single verse is really fucking incredible.
The first phrase (You just want backstreets) is the easiest to hear. I picked up on it on my first listen, but he does a similar thing on Heat Waves and the lines are incoherent so I didn't bother trying to suss this one out. It wasn't until I saw someone on here ( /u/willzore ) mention that playing it backwards at 4:50 reveals "Hello, this is Dave, welcome to Dreamland" that I considered there might actually be something there. The Genius page lists t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I refuse to be spoken to in that tone.
Or is it to do with the speed that alpha particles travel at during fission reactions
I'm sure we have all lost a balloon or got one that's blew away but how far into the sky does it actually go? You can keep a regular balloon for about a week and Itll still stay floating around your house but when it gets released into the sky does an actually make it through any of the "spheres" or does the volume of the helium prevent it from breaking through?
A plane uses up fuel (chemical energy) to keep it aloft. But a helium blimp doesn't seem to be consuming any energy. What energy is being used to hold the blimp up in the air against gravity?
Sorry, I am probably butchering the terminology.
Back in 2014, there was this article I read that Helium was a resource that was slowly but surely running out, I couldn't cite it unfortunately, but it talked about how it's an element that easily escapes the Earth's atmosphere and people made kind of a big deal out of it.
Over the years it's not really brought up anymore, so has Helium fully ran out or has it been on the edge of running out ever since?
I had a presidential suite all to myself. They treated me like royalty. Room service, food of my choosing, and a ginormous swimming pool that would make any kid jealous. Quite the opposite of what I was used to in a small town from the Midwest. Every night Ray and Saul took me to get ice cream somewhere in Nevada off base. I remember cruising along in the black Buick convertible, taking in the speeding winds, it was the only time when I felt truly free.
The night before, the day, we had a discussion at the ice cream parlor. A few other families were there, so we sat in the car, enjoying our cones away from their ears.
"Bradley, you're a real bright kid. I take it you understand what's being asked of you?" Ray started, he was shorter, had perfect hair and a mustache. He was in the... keep reading on reddit ➡
If I went to Walmart and bought a tank of helium, and pumped it into my ass, would I have hella squeaky farts?
I finally got my hotspot after waiting since March! I'm excited to be a part of the network. I have a few questions, it's been on for about two and a half days and I've made 4.8 helium is that good or bad for two days? I know that doesn't amount to much in dollar value, if I make 2 something helium per day it would take many many years to repay my hotspot lol. I ordered a external antenna that I plan on putting on top of my roof. Is there any way to know if your hotspot is passing RF traffic? It would be interesting to know if it's actually receiving any local signals.
I'm going to see family in like an hour and my voice just sounds weird. My voice has always cracked a lot especially when I'm tired but it's gotten worse (as is expected so this is a good thing). I'm not really out to family, and my cousin's birthday party isn't the place to come out but I'm just nervous because I overthink a lot. Honestly if someone could just tell me it'll be fine that'd be great
In an interview before Dreamland came out, Joe was saying that the lyrics in Helium are the most emotive poetry that Dave has ever written and I completely see where he's coming from. The second verse in particular, in tandem with the bittersweet melody is some of the best music I've heard them make:
Soft blue skies, Helium balloons float up away, Broad daylight, But we're sunflowers in the rain
Helium is so far absolutely my favourite song from Dreamland - followed by Space Ghost and Incredibly loud. Would love to hear how you lovely people feel about it.

I am new to this project but i like the idea of it. I saw that the device is usable in Germany and thinking of buying one.
Is the "Mining" still worth. How are your rewards atm.
Does anybody know how long the shipping would take.
Thank you :)
Helium is one of my favorite tracks off of the album. I think it's absolutely beautiful.
The lyrics: You talk like a man and taste like the sun make me wonder if he's talking about a relationship with a man, or if there is another meaning.
Sampai etmosfera ke.... Sampai angkasa ke.... Boleh tolong jelaskan tak...
Party balloons look cool, but we're going to completely run out of helium one day.
We need helium for things like weather balloons and MRIs, and those things are more important than birthday balloons. What if we need it for something else in the future?
Helium is not a renewable resource. Once it's gone, it's gone.
Hey guys I’m making a short horror film on sets and have either the opportunity to use Arri minis with Cooke anamorphics or Cooke s4s with red dragon dsmc 2 I love anamorphic but as a red owner I’ve never dealt with Arri before and the lack of res vs red is a concern. I know red is better in shadow and Arri in highlights.
we have trouble consistently meeting the global demand for helium, and it's a critically important gas in the healthcare field
balloon launches/lost balloons spread plastic waste all over
Mylar balloons can cause blackouts when hitting power lines
they're really not that cool tbh
Edit: 5) explosive hydrogen party balloons would make birthday parties so much more entertaining
This song gives me emotions, like big big emotional vibes. I want to lay in a field, with the sun on my face, and cry to this song. What are yalls thoughts? I’m struggling to interpret it past what it makes me feel.
I'm coming into the city tomorrow to see Trevor Wallace at helium comedy club. Has anyone been there before? What should I expect? Dress code? Does anyones know how the item minimum works?
It’s light humor.
I couldn’t stand being spoken to in that tone.
anyone else notice the key change? they're both in the same key, but switched from minor to major. it's almost as if it starts in the minor key in an ominous way... then, switches to major key by the end of the album with birds chirping, suggesting a new beginning, making you feel like you've been through something and came out on the other side. so awesome.
I have a high vacuum system that developed a leak which was sealed by epoxy sealant.
It has been a few days so I'm pretty sure the epoxy is set but the pressure is not looking good; there is still a leak.
When helium leak checked on the previously leaked spot, I don't get any leak reading.
When helium leak checked around the system, the leak checker picks up reading and the leak rate gets stuck for a long time.
The system is mainly pumped with a turbo pump.
I can't pinpoint this leak.
Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks for the input guys. The leak checker was dwelling at -9 torr scale leak and we decided to just pump it down with a cryopump. The system is at mid -8 torr scale and we are hopeful that it will lower in the next few days.
The chamber has reached low -8 torr scale which is adequate for our purpose.
That is all. Honorable mention to Hot Sugar for passing the vibe check. Fantastic album.

i'm so sorry but helium audio makes literally anything funny, even the serious scenes
If you reverse the section at 4:50, you can hear what sounds like ‘Hello, this is Dave, welcome to dreamland...’
Just curious how to buy this token. It seems to be listed on two exchanges each of which I don't consider trustworthy. How do you otherwise buy the coin?
At the 2:00 mark of Helium, there is a familiar melody and it is going to drive my me and my friends nuts if we don’t figure it out. PLEASE HELP.
I’ve spent one hour thinking where was part on 1:00 and 2:00 sampled from (Helium) I was damn sure I heard it before. Searching on reddit and twitter, everywhere, i gave up and then played “It’s all so incredibly loud” and facepalmed, really hard.
Why does this fucker exist? Who thought that one of the most annoying monsters in base game needed an even worse subspecies? Regular Paolumu was a hassle for many reasons, he was constantly flying, he looked like he was drawn by a kindergarten class, and wind pressure is just awful. But enough about the regular abomination, let's look at the subspecies, which has all the qualities from the regular variant, but throws in sleep. I truly HATE sleep, i'd take anything over a monster with sleep, I'd take ice blight over sleep! but nope, Capcom decided that sleep was what an already bad monster was going to get, thanks guys.
