    You just know Falcon is jealous.

  4. Hagbard says:

    We are running out of Helium, sort of. Check the article- Red Ice’s website isn’t the only place to find that out either if you don’t like clicking on links from strangers. Wired ran an article on it recently and a quick Google search will… whatever…

    They made a flying house for whimsy, yet no one rode in it. Nobody on a couch watching tv or staring into the fridge wondering what to eat or reading a Chatelain magazine whilst pooping/masturbating? You know, house stuff.

    Guys, guys, guys. There is no inflection in text, let’s not pretend that there is.

    Yet another reason for sarcasm font.

  8. Loaf Loaf says:

    Lucy you have been misinformed – Next to hydrogen, Helium is the second most abundant element in the universe, and accounts for 24% of the elemental mass of our galaxy. We are not short on helium by any means….check your facts so you don’t sound like an idiot!

  9. Lucy says:

    Don’t they know we’re running out of helium?!

    I wonder how they landed the house?

    Ya’ll do realize that it was National Geographic what started that thing about the stranded baby grand off Miami.
