  • The biggest problem in up is (spoilers) he still lost the lawsuit and still is forced into a retirement home where he's not allowed to leave. Add child abduction, public endangerment and illegally violating several airspaces to that mix, poor Carl will probably be in jail for the rest of his life

  • Here is another question what did Carl plan to do at paradise falls just live there? Did he just plan to starve to death? And then when he had Russell what was his plan then?

  • It would actually be impossible to float a house that weight with balloons, because as you get more balloons you begin to need more fishing line to connect them to the house, and the length of line would end up weighing more than 9 grams (the calculated lifting force of a helium balloon) well before you actually had enough balloons, from there, adding more balloons would have a negative effect, and so the house could never fly.

  • okay but am I the only person very concerned that people thought it would be okay to release millions of baloons into the atmosphere where they'd just pop and become scattered across the state or even the country, maybe even the ocean?

  • I really really, want a film theory of BTS. the fact that all their MV tye together is amazing. Like the Universe theory, where jin, has to go back in time to save his friends, is awesome, and there is still so much that needs to be explained. Like how fake love has something to do with this story. I am always confused about everything and how it connects. honestly, it could be a movie at how detailed it is. I think matt would really enjoy coming up with his own opinion about this, and it's right up his alley. if he watches all the mv there he going to unpack alot, no doubt he will start out with a theory, and that later be proved wrong. not to mention the webtoon Save ME will help him out and make it more confusing. I really want him to touch on this before the band ends because ones they do,Im sure they will come out with a movie or comic about it. so matt if your seeing this, just look it up or even think about it. thank you for your time, and BTS ARMY like if you agree, because I know I'm not the only one who thinks this!!!.😅😊

And his final destination is called Paradise falls...
