Helium in the Bladder?

Does it make a difference? Randy first posted it here: https://windsportatlanta.com/comment/45725#comment-45725

Pretty fun video to watch even if you are a stick and monofilm guy/girl. I'm sure all the Lanier kiters are hating how nice it is to kite on Lake Ontario, though. If it makes you feel better, they are all wearing a decent amount of neoprene even in the middle of summer.

They need to do another one with hydrogen - weighs less than half as much as helium for some really explosive performance gains.

How about one with neon? Ideal for kiting in the summer. If your kite glows, you know there's lightning nearby. Shocking, I know...

Maybe methane. It is lighter than air and stinks if you have a leaky bladder.....

Randy, stinking methane is usually something else leaking. Lol

I liked your other response better.

Since I have zero memory permanence, we'll have to live with this one. I think a goldfish could beat me at chess presently.

Note to self: the fruit tea you had last night was probably caffeinated which is why you were wide awake way too late.
