In 1995 we lifted a camcorder in the air by attaching it to thirty-nine helium filled trash bags. Why 39 trash bags? We bought a box of 40, but one had a hole in it. 1995 vintage camcorders are rather bulky, and it actually took the 39th bag to get it off the ground.

The camcorder sat in a sling we made from a piece of an old bed sheet, and the whole works was tied to a fence with a piece of string which was 200 feet long. It was almost like flying a kite, and we had a lot of fun.
