@edgarblythe,
Me too. Maybe a broken leg, something that can heal. I have no idea what I think at this point -- details have been so sketchy and scattershot. It seemed definite at one point that he was fine, and now it seems very unlikely. Maybe more information will emerge that will point things in yet another direction. But as of right now, I'm pretty worried.

@edgarblythe,
I don't think that balloon is large enough to lift a 50lb kid. I think he's hiding on the ground somewhere.

@dyslexia,
OK, now I'm pissed, thinking it was a planned stunt to get attention....

@DrewDad,
I suppose that is possible...they ARE off the reality show now. Maybe they needed some more attention.

That's where it's at. None of this TI-92 nonsense.

Some are blaming the father, but I can see how two boys fooling around could accidentally let it go.

@edgarblythe,
I agree Edgar,I think the six year old ran and hid when he realized the family balloon was floating away and he was going to be blamed. The old brother probably didn't see the younger brother, but rather watched the balloon go up and up.

@Diest TKO,
I'm a calculator-aholic, I own the following programmable-graphing units:

Hp 50g
TI-89 Titanium (favorite)
TI-84 Plus Silver (favorite)
Casio fx-9860G Slim
TI- Voyage 200
Casio fx-9750G Plus
TI-89 (pre-Titanium)

For simpler functions/ease of use:
TI- 30XS (favorite)
Casio fx-991MS (favorite)
Casio FX991ES
Sharp ELW516B
TI-30XIIS

I know I'm kinda wacky and I have too many but I love 'em, and you can learn so much figuring out how to use them!

Ah, it's rite of passage for a young father, is it not? The first time his son named after a predatory bird nearly sails off into oblivion on the family airship?

What a funny little dance life is.
