    also I don't think there's that much helium supply on earth at the moment

    The moon isn't that far away. And the route there isn't blocked by some giant ship.

    Yet.

    I solved their problem.

    You forgot to convert from tons. They'd need 18.4 billion balloons, not a measly 8.3 million.

    Balloons are horrible for the environment. Can we just fill the ship with helium and save on plastic?

    Actually, no. Buoyancy needs lower density (higher volume). Filling the fixed volume of the ship with any amount of helium won't make it float. However, if you want to save on plastic, I would entertain building a gargantuan Zeppelin large enough to carry a cargoship underneath it.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    Y’all joke, but marine salvage balloons exist:

    That's funny, I saw there was a Maersk ship in the canal right behind the Ever Given when I was looking at that ship tracking site earlier. It's back in the Red Sea now it looks like.

    We're internet people, we spend all day typing stuff into search bars. We have a thread full of friends talking about a thing right here.

    Edit: Dang, sorry, that came out sounding glib and dismissive, I get where you're coming from. What I meant is that some of my favorite conversations around here started with someone asking what sounds like an obvious question and sparking someone else to share a rad fact or tell an interesting story.

    Something I've learned from being an instructor is that if someone speaks up with a question you can be damn sure that there are others with the same question who just didn't speak up. Why should those folks all have to search up that info when you can talk about it in a common location?

    South China sea has a ton of trade and is a major smuggling route [the main route for Opium and assorted products} So when we were doing VBSS stuff it was 3 out of 10 boats we caught was the best but still far more trade goes on in that area than goes though the canals

    Pls dont be rude to my Strait

    Also I told my dad I thought this was funny as hell and he was like "I don't see the humor" and I was like "get on the nihilism level of every human born after 1980 then"

    Strictly speaking only one of those is a big island... Malaysia is a peninsula. Sumatra is like about the size of California.

    Singapore is only 275 square miles though.
