Very few people managed to keep their eyes open for the *pop*. I'm chicken like that too.

I love how, out of your favorites, the little girl had the least fear.

Good stuff.

I know! After looking at 50 people cringing, stumbling on her stoic gaze was really unsettling, somehow.

The woman from the #2 favorite has a great expression.

The girl from #3 favourite looks totally badass.

I cannot grasp that child's expression.

Not one muscle of her face is tensed and her eyes are focussed on infinity.

The only occasion I can think of where I have seen similar faces is with people standing around staring hypnotized into a bonfire.

It's 2006 all over again.

Actually, I think those photos are from the 2006 maker faire, if the dates are to be trusted.

Perhaps you were looking for these?

I, too, only looked at the first three.

I think this guy achieved enlightenment upon popping his balloon.

and to think I played softball and drank with friends instead of going to maker faire.

How'd they they get the balloon to fit over the head of this girl?

No thanks. Distinct lack of bal... oh my god! Fap, fap, fap...

Now if we could only get some stop action shots of cake farting!
