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!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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!!!.😅😊

  • It’s actually incredible how he managed to fill up all those balloons overnight and then where does he hide them they would like a tarp back there I don’t think he has that big of a backyard plus the Grass would’ve popped a lot of balloons My original theory I just realize something for an old man he knows I get the job done really fast like he feels balloons overnight to fill up his entire house and he still has enough energy to get to the falls

  • My theory for Up isn’t about the balloons from the house, my theory is that Carl is actually dying and the Boy Scout (who says he needs to help Carl cross something like a road or something like that) is actually an “Angel” that is there to help him cross to the other side. And his final destination is called Paradise falls...
