Who rides these things today? I'm sure they were handy before airplanes were invented, but how safe does it seem to shoot a giant flame into a flammable fabric balloon?

I agree. I won't go up in one either. What's to keep some nut on the ground from taking a pot shot at the balloon. Heck, I bet a .22 is enough to take one down.

Who really cares?

After all, they're just a bunch of flaming Canadians, good riddance, I say.

The thing went up about 400 feet (122 meters) in the air at which point it melted enough of the balloon _ it collapsed,» said Don Randall, a resident of the trailer park who took pictures of the scene. «The basket was basically a fireball. It just dropped like a stone
The thing?
