Hehehe. I'm a bad person.

This video, put together by CHSupercuts, shows over and over again one of the most heartbreaking moments of childhood: the feeling of accidentally letting go of a helium balloon and seeing it vanish into the atmosphere. As a child, it is a pure pain unlike anything else, because your parents cannot fix it. Sure, they may offer to get you a new balloon, but you don't want a new balloon; you want that one. As an adult, it's pretty funny.

What's really weird is that this is the second balloon-related post I've written today, after covering a musician who played "99 Luftballoons" ("99 Red Balloons"), a song about helium balloons flying a way and accidentally triggering nuclear war, using only red balloons.
