When Monica and Natalie and I were at the state fair, the girls picked up some free helium-filled balloons. Monica's balloon descended to earth overnight, and she asked me why and how the helium escapes. I told her that when we got home, we'd get on the computer, go to howstuffworks.com and see.
Then today I noticed some dog doo-doo in the yard that had turned white. I said to the girls, "I wonder what makes it turn white. I think I'll check it out on the Internet."
That's when Monica reminded me about the helium question, which I'd totally forgotten.
I found a forum where the white-dog-poo was discussed, but they really didn't seem to come to a conclusion about why it turns white with age.
Then, on to the helium question. Click HERE for the answer.
I really need to get out the house.
Oh, I do have my cell phone now. It has a camera, and even the capability to take videos. I tried both of these options out before it hit me that they might cost extra. OH NO!!!!
Needless to say, I'll be using my Canon Powershot for pictures and videos until I find out.
