10. That's hilarious.
I'm all too familiar with these things. Some of my co-workers at my last employment loved to collect them.

14. More like I'm easily bored
So I take up weird hobbies. Balloon twisting is the first one that's paid off though. :)

Those are made with a twisting method called "weaving" - appropriate, eh? You can turn it upside down and add more on to the bottom and get a nice top hat (or leprechaun hat, etc.) or turn it upside down, put some balloon frosting around the top and bottom and a candle on top and have a balloon birthday cake.

One of the masters of this technique, David Grist, from England, died recently. He once twisted a 14-foot high - WORKING - Merry-Go-Round with 3 horses on it. You couldn't sit on it, but it would spin.

16. I wish they lasted longer.
But, then, their brief lifespan is part of their beauty and appeal. Unless you're 4 years old :)

17. These have lasted a good 5-7 days before
They started notably sagging, but it would be nicer if they could somehow last longer.

18. Yeah. I imagine after so much effort
it should seem like they would last a little longer. That doesn't look easy.
