Limited?? It's the second most abundant element in the galaxy after hydrogen!!1
The fact helium is abundant in the universe does not preclude the fact there is a limited amount of it on this planet.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

At least it wasted a lot of a Helium, a limited resource.
The film’s mounting sense of dread prepares us for what happens next: the balloons are promptly brought down by an approaching storm. They wreak havoc on the city, litter Lake Erie, and, tragically, impede a Coast Guard search and rescue mission for two missing fishermen. Balloonfest serves as a sobering reminder of the short-sightedness of humankind.

The only thing that flat-earthers have to fear is sphere itself.

Watching that I was reminded of the great Thanksgiving turkey giveaway from WKRP in Cincinnati.

Just the raaaaaging inferiority complex evident in this, nearly every vocal comment, the raw desperation for validation... Just....WOW.

So not only did an absolute moron come up with this, but a ton of other morons thought this was a good idea for some reason. The Mistake on The Lake, indeed.

I'm less concerned about the loss of helium than all the rubber which probably killed all kinds of wild life which ate the balloons.
