Helium causes problems

2/19/2008:

Weird events over the past 20 minutes.

Multiple fire calls, and even Hoboken University Medical Center is on backup power.

Apparently some kid let his balloons go, and they landed on some wires near 6th and Bloomfield, causing a transformer fire. The fire is now out, but headaches remain.

Listen to the live Hoboken Police and Fire Scanner for more.

[quote comment=”68869″]hey “hobokentownie” you sound bitter. you must either be Osama’s war-torn delinquient half-cousin or a sterile person yourself (and i’m not talking about being germ-free either). and whether you’re a man or a woman, that’s your business. must be tough having the blood of the Man of Terror running through your sterile (haha!) veins. It’s okay to be sterile. I’m sure your uncle Bin has something in store for you. Oh maybe he’s thinking of wrapping dynamite around your big tummy to give it the proper look. good luck buddy![/quote]
I don’t know, that seemed more bitter and harsh then “hobokentownie”. At least what they said was funny.

Are you kidding?

[quote comment=”68815″]instead of moping about losing your balloon, you’ll sprint on home hoping that no one noticed, fearing of a potential lashing by fat-boy mayor waiting-for-heart-attack roberts…[/quote]

Most people here would sprint for the nearest lawyer (or launch the case themselves) and sue the city for the ‘inappropriate placement of utility wires’ and ‘destruction of personal property’.

That being said, your ‘fat-boy mayor waiting-for-heart-attack roberts’ quip is hilarious. Thank you.

It was Al-Queda attempt to cause a blackout and mass hysteria.

We use millions to attack their power grid, they use 5 $0.79 mylar balloons. What’s next pigeons dropping toxic crap on the stroller moms to cause their children to become sterile?

I thought it’s already illegal to release balloons because the poor birds swallow them and choke to death…unless they’re flying rat pigeons, then that’s OK by me.
