Up, Up, and Away

In keeping with earlier posts about the blurred line between truth and fiction, I give you this. It is all truth, but, it's worthy of fiction. Absurd, existential, comic fiction that hits you right in the gut, but fiction, nonetheless.

I leave the details to the Telegraph.co.uk. But imagine the feeling this guy must have had as his balloon drifted away without him--a little Dorothy at the end of the Wizard of Oz?

And, apparently, if you find his balloon, you may as well just keep it.

As P aptly put it, "That sounds like a good way to die."

Nice find on that there interweb, Reda.

You'd think he'd have a spare. Can't he just get another balloon?

I wonder how many homes could have been built or even supplied with clean, running water for $20 million. I have no patience for the rich.gd
