Default How many balloons have you popped in your life?
I asked this question on my VK a couple months ago but I wanted to ask this on here again w so many poppers out here. To all my popping friends out there... I have a quick question: In your lifetime, how many balloons do you think you have popped?

I probably order around 1500-2000 balloons a year, and I've been regularly buying in bulk for about 4 years. Before that, when I could start affording to buy balloons for myself, I probably bought like 200-400. And I've been popping balloons since I was in 4th or 5th grade. So...

So I'm thinking like: 15,000 balloons!

Anyone else have an idea?

wow, that is an amazing number!

When this year started, I challenged myself to pop one a day. I haven't managed to do that. Even not on average.
When I'm popping balloons I rarely pop over 10 balloons. So I would be surprised if I would have popped over 1000 balloons!

Yeah, just lately, I've been filling a lot of balloon rooms. I usually pop between 40-100, sometimes more, balloons. Maybe 1-2 times a month. I like your idea of popping one a day though. Why did you decide to try popping one per day. But hooray for popping 1000 balloons!

Somewhere around 1000-1500 I guess. Mostly cheap small balloons.

Last year, I had a client that had me working from home. I would always sit on balloons while I worked and I kept a sheet of how many balloons I popped in a month. The final count was 257. That was a lot more than normal, I'm sure, but I have to think the number is in the thousands for my life time.

My count is 4,000 balloons, 70 beach balls and 10 pool inflatables. All bare-feet or with socks on. It's an approx figure, could be more!

I am not a popper per say, but I put a leak or two in the stem to slowly deflate them, then I cut the end of the stem off for reinflation.

Maybe around 200? Which is pretty low considering I love popping. I don't get to do it as frequently as I would like.
