Posted:Ok ok so it's not really related to fire. However, it is my first engineering feat publicised on the internet.

Posted:But, dammit, will it fly?!!!

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:Thats ace.

The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.-- Ken Kesey

Posted:Rozi, Raymund and Bender...

Rozi. Yes it will fly if you weight the nose with a dozen paper clips and throw it really really hard!

Raymund, cool to hear you've got some balloonatics as friends, do you still have contact with any of them?

Bender. I'd love to say the photo's and instructions are mine. But they aren't.

Professor Wonder's balloon gallery

is the magnificent effort of one Garry Gardiner in the states. The balloons are only a section of his site, have a look at Professor Wonder's Homepage To see the rest of it.

He's da man!!!
