Basically we used a shitton of it due to the United states being dumb by pricing it low. Now scientists are pissed off because there are only a few ways to get it on Earth.

However there is a solution to this, Helium 3 and THE MOON!!! Yep... we are going to need to colonize the Moon within 30 years! Yay for that, boo for Helium shortage, tell you party balloon guys to stop wasting it so scientists that actually need it can use it!

If animated old misanthropes would stop being cheapskates and buy tickets to South America instead of trying to float their entire fucking house there with thousands of balloons we wouldn't have this problem.

Fine, I'll stop buying helium people. Only nitrogen people from here on out.

So with the helium shortage...are you finally going to breathe oxygen and make sense?

I love you almost as much as I love the proper implementation of commas, ShaggE.

You should see my work with semicolons. I can semi the fuck out of some colons. :P

There's a joke here about people calling me the Colon Cleanser, but I'd be pulling the punchline out of my ass.

Ha.

And, as others have said, there's been a shortage for years. This is old news.
