Re: Balloons in the background of tv episodes or movies

I'd guess that being so tight under the hot lights, the balloon popped between takes, and the props people inflated another one not so much. Or they could have shot the next scene another day with...

Re: Balloons in the background of tv episodes or movies

There was a Sopranos episode where it was Tony's birthday and the outdoors of the house was decorated with crystal/jewel colored balloons. You could tell the order in which the scenes were shot - at...

Re: The Word "Balloon"

Especially if they pronounce it "bloon" (leaving out the "al" syllable)

Re: 16 inch balloon drops during the Stones 1981 tour

That's the one! I remember seeing this on MTV long ago - Woody popping them with his cigarette.

I'm a member, visit about every other day, but only bother to log in when there are pictures to download or want to reply to a message (like here). I suspect many others are in the same category.

Re: What was this Australian balloon brand?

Thanks for the link, don't get to see nonpop helium inflation too often.

I'd rather invite Miss Gasponaut (at 9:40) to my "pahhtee", but that's just me.
Hey Tracy -- there are your smaller...

Re: What kind of balloon is this?

I don't know, but it certainly falls into the category of "Balloons you wish would make a come back".

Re: How about some scientific approach on balloon popping? :-)

Not sure if balloon manufacturers burst-test their product, but condom manufacturers definitely do. A long time ago Consumer Reports tested condoms, and they had a picture of one being inflated until...

Re: Have you ever witnessed a random blow to pop?

Re: Longer term storage of balloons

Where do you obtain just pure talc? I use cornstarch to help unstick balloons, but if talc works better I'll try it. I always use a pump so breathing talc isn't an issue.

Re: Bl00n-lvr

Yeah, very creative. Actually one of the few of these stories that I've read to the end.
See if the "Big Bang Theory" cast is available to make the movie!

Re: there seems to be a balloon shortage

My local Walmart's balloon section has been completely cleaned out for several months now. Don't know whether it is Walmart deciding to no longer sell latex balloons, or not being able to get any.

My Wubble Bubble sprung a leak - anyone ever successfully patch one?

It didn't pop, but overnight started a leak - small hole in that seam that goes around the inflation nozzle. I've tried rubber cement and piece of a popped balloon, but not sure if it's going to hold...

Re: Balloons in your younger years

1. Agreed that it is more "acceptable" for persons of female gender to have balloons around. I remember years ago visiting a high-school friend and seeing inside his sister's bedroom a large worker...

Re: Gemar 19, where to find them?

The tail end of the link got chopped off. Go to, then press the "Latex Balloons" button, then in "TAMA~NO / SIZE" choose "48cm-19"

Not too bad of a price either: $10.50/25.

Re: Balloon Oxidation: Yay or Nay

Nay also. I much prefer the sight, texture and smell of freshly inflated. When they go dull and smell funky, it's time to dispatch with a BTP or STP (and this ties in with the semipopper thread).

Are they made in China? If so, who knows what they're putting in them.
I have some made-in-China polka dot balloons from Dollar Tree. Really pretty crystal colors, but they smell like a refinery...
