Hi,

I am in Bangalore for a bit and want a Helium cylinder for balloons for a party.

Does anyone know of a good source to buy one in Bangalore? I tried to find Balloon Time cylinders but there aren't any.

Thank you

Helium is getting very scarce it is a finite resource -- when it's all used up that's it, it's all gone -- you can't just go and make some more --- and we are not far off from it being so -- it has some very important medical uses, i would hate to think some one in hospital cannot be helped because some fool wasted it inflating a god dammed balloon for a party ------ trick or treat ----- Love your work.

Sorry to say that I never knew anything about that until I read an article within the last month.

Well, I guess that the party trade is not going to stop, but it is one of those things where each of us can make a small difference by not buying.

Look on the bright side, theguitarist: you'll only have to clear the floor of balloons afterwards, not the ceiling!

Happy Partying!

gah. didn't know about that. I don't think the planet will last for much longer. I wish I were an oldie now who wouldn't have to see all this chaos.

I'll reconsider Helium balloons then. Are there other gases that can go inside balloons?

Is it legal and unregulated to buy and possess inert / non-reactive gases in Bangalore? The gas supply stores have such an "industrial" vibe to them which makes me feel weird to approach them.

You could try Hydrogen - but that would mean no candles!

Gosh... If only we could all be convinced on environmental concerns so easily, the world would be saved tomorrow!

Do not use the helium gas please. He is important for cryo and nuke applications.
Why dont you look for the hot air baloon instead?

Ordinary air... then kids can toss them around without loosing them to the ceiling, and make horrible noises bursting them without talking in squeaky voices.

Err... does that ever happen from party balloons, or does it require a whole lungfull?
