    What the hell was going through the mind of the inventor of the first hot air balloon? “Aye love I’m just popping out. Dinnar where I’ll land though, could be an hour or I might need to get a taxi back from Johannesburg so I’ll see ya when I see ya”

    It's a little known fact that the taxi was invented before the hot air balloon

    1783 was a very good year.
     
  5. Aye, he phoned one and waited so fucking long for it to arrive, that he had no choice but to invent the balloon.

    the first military use of balloons as a weapon was by the austrians in 1849... they loaded them with 30lbs bombs and launched them on Venice. unfortunately a few blown back across their own lines and landed on their troops. Oops!
