Balloons must be strange to blind people. Balloons in general are a strange and weird thing we made, but to blind people it must be really strange and weird, amirite?

I get what you're saying also. However I think you might be overthinking balloons and maybe underthinking blind people's abilities a bit.

But I could be wrong. Maybe balloons are weird to blind people. We will have to wait to hear from someone who can ask their blind friend or family member this existential question.

I'm still "team balloons are fairly straightforward to everyone".

We know your stance.

Let's wait for the data to come in and reconvene then.

Meeting adjourned til further information.

Ok but just a quick add on, I just searched blind person with balloon and there's no images. Ik it's stupid but you gotta admit it's odd that there's not a single image

i suggest balloons would be way down the list of strange things, they'd be more concerned with basic things that are designed for able sighted people. Eg a digital microwave.

Just to clarify I meant more so the concept of balloons. Like at least with sight we see colored balloons or we see birthday balloons and so on. But to blind people it's really nothing. Like when have you've ever seen a blind person with a balloon?

I think it's just coz, tbh-it's quite a simple concept to describe and most blind people are smart enough to understand globe shaped thin rubber filled with either our own breath or helium (not my family though. Heliums running out and it's kinda important to heaps of things so don't do helium if you don't have to. Just my community reminder coz I'm a dork) and they are bright colours and they float if you have them on a string or disappear to kill sealife or birds sometime later if you let it go and they are the scourge of the environment really.

I think maybe balloons arent as strange as you think to most people.

I get what you're saying. I'm not saying they don't understand what it is. Just saying that it must be a strange or weird concept to them. More than it is to someone who could see

In what way is it really strange to them though, you reckon?

Can we confirm that balloons are trippy to the visually impaired here? I feel like they would be at a normal level of weirding out about balloons, but I have my sight so I wouldn't know.

And I also don't think balloons are that weird.
