Cool idea i suppose but what a waste of helium which is already in short supply.

Did you know that a party balloon full of helium would cost $100 if it weren't for a US ruling ordering the country to sell off its entire stockpile?

Why on Earth would they order stockpiles of Helium to be liquidated? Knowing that by the end of the century we could potentially be without this widely used gas.
