Every toy balloon has an opening through which gases are blown into it, followed by a connecting tube known as the neck. Balloons are usually filled by using one's breath, a pump, or a pressurized gas tank. The opening can then be permanently tied off or clamped temporarily. By filling a balloon with a gas lighter than air, such as helium, the balloon can be made to float. Helium is the preferred gas for floating balloons, because it is inert and will not catch fire or cause toxic effects when inhaled. Small, light objects are sometimes placed in balloons along with helium and released into the air and, when the balloon eventually descends, the object inside might be found by another person.
And to the surprise of absolutely no one, President Shithead is calling for more gun control following the coordinated attack on the Dallas Police department. Nevermind the fact that gave a press conference yesterday dedicated to vilifying the law enforcement community as a whole, no it's got to be a fucking gun problem. This world has almost become a fucking parody of itself. So trust me kids, you're gonna thank me one day real soon.
For today's FRIDAY FLICK I really tried to find a viable copy of End of Watch, but came up empty. So instead I humbly offer, "There will come a time when you might have to decide who lives and dies out there. It's a terrible responsibility but it's one you will have to make as a rescue swimmer. The bigger reality is, its also something you are going to have to live with as a human being. There will come a time when you will have to say no. The most important person to keep alive is yourself. You'll be facing crews from 5 to 20 all saying 'save me, save me.' They're looking for a miracle. How old are you Hodge? ...24... At 24 years old you have to become that miracle. You have to find a way to be that miracle."
Oh, and for the weekend, see if you can't figure out where this rental bicycle was parked.
