Dear 100 Hour Board,
Would going on a hot air balloon ride be a good idea for a date or what? What do you think? Also, how much would that cost? Are there places nearby where i can do that? Preferably someone/a business with a modicum of sympathy for poverty stricken college students.

A: Dear Happy,
It's expensive. You're probably looking at $500 or so just to get the thing up in the air. So if you're really serious about it, make it a double date (split the cost). A word to the wise though; If the wind is blowing faster than 8 mph, they won't risk going up, and you'll be out of luck. So have a plan B. I almost ruined my senior prom because I didn't have a backup. Awesome idea though.
