    This thread is giving me a headache. They told me not to inhale too much helium...

    You guys have really overinflated the hype around the Helium Wars.

    I wonder if the muffin man had anything to do with the Helium Wars, or if it was the babe with the power?

    In the real world (that is the physical one) He is a byproduct of some deep natural gas wells.
    The US gov used to pay companies to produce gas from these wells just to strip off the He, but now gov has enough in storage.
    With gas prices down most of these wells are not economical to operate (they are very deep and low production).
    We use He at work and the prices have gone up 5x in the last 15 years, while N and Ar have only gone up 1.5x.
    H is cheap, but it does have some other issues....... :eek:

    But now airship pirates does sound interesting. You do read this don't you?

    N2 and Ar should track inflation because you can extract them easily from air.

    @Ivan your thoughts on how this will affect the helium wars?

    You can’t escape the Helium Wars. They’ll weight for you.

    It's all happening again, just like before.

  • IvanIvan Icrontian

    I know what's coming. While you were all asleep at the wheel I switched over the power source. You'll thank me one day... if you make it.
