wow. you hardly get refills for $5 any more.
Oh, if you do decide to play with balloons, remember that they float. Toilet paper makes a nifty delay mechanism, as long as you are not in a drought, or the middle of a city.
The CO2 tanks actually have burst disks in them designed to burst at around 1800.(the rated pressure). IIRC, they get hydro-tested to 3ksi.
Very good to know about the balloons.
I assume the burst disk is in the valve. It has now been replaced by a 1/2" union.

um... I actually have no idea where the burst disk is. It's a little screw thing. make sure your union burst disk fails at under 1800 and you should have pretty much the same effect.
even if there was no link I'd know it's a bot because of female name
