The Sight Of Guesses And Balloons

Okay, the guesses are posted in the comments of that last post. Good luck. A bunch of you are kinda boxed in there in the high 40s...

Side balloon-boy note: I'm noticing a movement that's gaining ground by the minute. It's people saying, "God, you people are so stupid--anyone with half a brain knows a boy couldn't have been in a balloon that small..." followed by a bunch of scientific facts they cut and pasted from somewhere else.

I'd just like to point out that, as someone who watched it live, we had no idea how big the thing was! Granted, I figured the kid was off hiding--but not because I didn't think it was possible for a kid to have been in there. All we saw was this saucer floating in the sky. It could have been 100 feet in diameter, it could have been six. With nothing to compare it to for scale, how could we know?? Hooper was a pretty good scientist, and even he needed Brodie to walk out farther on the boat to figure out how big Jaws was. And now I'm considered to be some kind of moron by a bunch of people who weren't even watching. Terrible job, Pretend-To-Know-Balloon-Size junta!
