Have you ever wondered if the house in Up could really float away on balloons? So have I but that is not the most INTERESTING question! You see, people have tried to figure that out before. What I aim to do today, Loyal Theorists, is figure out the actual COST of making a balloon powered flying house WORK! That's right, we are not stopping until this house would really fly!

  • Fan theory: he is really a god. Reasons: 1. He can make 21 million balloons appear out of nowhere 2. He can damage construction workers only using a mail box in his base form 3. He can steer the entire house only using a shower curtain 4. He can drag his entire house only use a rope when he’s in South America

  • All you needed to do was 1. Find how many balloons you need to make a pound actually float 2. Than multiple the amount of pounds the house weighs to the amount of balloons needed for one pound 3. You got your floating house 4. Your Broke

  • It'll take you ten years to blow up all of those balloons unless you hire 7 300 people to work twelve ours in which case you can have it done in a single day. Edit: even if you payed reach of them $15.00 an our you're only paying about 1 400k dollars which is not that much compared to the rest of the money you will be paying.

  • Alright guys, listen up. I propose a theory that Matpat does a video on how strong Carl is. I mean, he pulled a house, kept a kid, dog, and GIGANTIC BIRD FROM FALLING OFF AN AIR SHIP!!! Please spread the word so matpat can seee this. Post this on his videos, post it on Reddit, I don’t care.

  • Thank you I’ve been asking since 2014 In the film used 10 286 balloons By the way the replica added a few extra rooms so it doesn’t count Also he used a coffee grinder to steer the house which controlled the curtains And the weather gains also controlled the curtains and Carl read a lot of airships book as you see in the beginning of the film when he broke his arm he was reading one and it was next to his arm chair later in the film Also Carl saved a lot of balloons from his days in the zoo as you see when he takes his luggage out of the closet And all the other might of been in storage and the Helium too Also the Balloons were a bit bigger than you said, one balloon is the size of Russell head and Russell is giant so I mean he balloons are a bit bigger

  • Another problem is floating balloons wouldn’t travel very fast. It would take weeks likely to travel that far. During this time you’d have leaks and the balloons would lose lift. Sure a balloon only carrying its own weight might make it, but you’d have to account for 50-60% lift loss over the course of that trip and that means the house falls.

  • I want to see how MatPat’s brain works when doing the calculations for each type of these episodes. Also, as someone who is from Cleveland as well, over in Canton, Ohio we have the Football Hall of Fame. Mainly because we “created”/hosted the very first football game. Though it wasn’t televised, it’s still the first time a regulation game of football happened.

  • 11:00 he forgot where the guy worked. He worked at a zoo selling balloons. He didn't buy them. He stolen them from work. All those balloon and helium are from his work. He took the last of his money for the fishing line.

  • Matpat, heres a interesting proposition: Do you think Mr. Fredrickson used Hydrogen in those balloons? The tanks seen in the yard could be Hydrogen tanks. Helium was rare in the 1900s to 1950s (around the time of UP) so that could be a interesting change of logic.

  • 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

    Karamjeet KaurKaramjeet Kaur27 päivää sitten
  • 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.
