  • 14:23:31: Yikes. 6-year-old boy trapped in an experimental helium balloon at 7K feet in Colorado (dropping now, apparently) http://bit.ly/2dP9n9
  • 14:26:47: And the supposed balloon expert being interviewed on cnn.com streaming video obviously has no idea what he's talking about
  • 14:42:10: Balloon's smaller than I thought, now that I see it on the ground. Doesn't seem to be an opening -- how could a kid have been in there?
  • 15:27:17: Some argument now whether boy was ever in balloon. From size, looks like compartment just meant for instruments - family did storm chases
  • 17:10:38: "Balloon boy" Falcon Heene found alive hiding in box in attic http://www.9news.com

You've GOT to be frackin' kidding me! They really thought a kid could be inside the balloon itself without suffocating from breathing *helium*? I'm sorry, what?

Supposedly there was a separate compartment for batteries and instruments at the bottom of the balloon (the mushroom stem, as it were).
