boring, but cool
a balloon Christine
attempt to kill was thwarted
thank you firefighters
This story is actually more boring than it sounds, but here it is anyway… three people in a hot air balloon crashed into some power lines. Everyone was OK, no one electrocuted, though the balloon did try to escape with someone still in the basket. The most interesting thing about this story is that the crash happened on a street where I used to live. The college efficiency apartment finally saw some action.
Oh, and the best part of the article… the last line.
Like what would the firefighters have used instead? A tinier hot air balloon? A jet pack? Go-go-gadget arms? Their on-staff Plasticman?
