lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below.
She shouted to him,'Excuse me, can you help me? I
promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied,
'You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of

'I am,' replied the balloonist.'How did you know?'
'Well,' said the man,'you don't know where you are or where you are
going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot
