Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Duck, Duck, Goose. Musical Chairs. These traditional games barely hold a candle to the party activities enabled by Kingdom Inflatables. The festivity emporium equips gatherings with enormous, multicolored bounce houses, some with cartoon themes and slides. Bouncers can perfect their craft watching kernels spring to life in the rentable popcorn machine, or cool down with frozen treats or summertime snowball fights from Kingdom Inflatables' snow-cone cart.
Popcorn explodes into edible fluff; shaved ice and sugary syrup fill paper snow-cone cylinders; wisps of cotton candy swirl around sticks. Jumpin' Jam Blast makes memories such as these with a variety of party rentals. And the rentals aren't exclusively food machines; they include everything from bounce houses and water slides to tables, chairs, and tents. The business also provides entertainers and party staff such as DJs, costumed characters, and photographers.
Whether you're resting in a mountain cabin, traveling through a city, or being vented out an airlock into outer space, dust is all around you. Microscopic particles—usually a combination of soil, pollen, skin cells, and minerals—can pile up quickly indoors. The problem is exacerbated by tiny creatures called dust mites, which gather in groups of 100 to 500 per gram of dust to devour flakes of human skin while multiplying in number, excreting waste, and probably chittering away. No matter where you are on Earth, a mote of dust is presently traveling straight toward your eye, thanks to the persistent creation of dust in almost any climate humans inhabit.
Even beyond our planet, dust is ubiquitous: astronomers face the universe's untidiness every time they peer through a telescope and find formations of cosmic dust, which absorb the visible light around them. Although it comes from exploding stars rather than flaky humans, space dust isn't so different from the domestic variety: a 2007 paper published in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science explored the similarities between the formation of dust bunnies under beds and the coagulation of space dust into planets.
