Bayfront balloon rides

A company is planning on offering balloon rides (for 30 people at a time!) over Downtown Miami for $14 a pop. Almost as much fun as Trapeze lessons. (Via 411. The image is obviously a computer rendering.)

    Sure he’s got a website. Who doesn’t? This is the 21st century: even dogshit has a website. Speaking of which, google on “Speck’s Pecs” (I refuse to link it here) to see how far down a hole humanity can plummet.
