So the general idea with these is that the fuel cell is supposed to have a very short life, so that it goes out before it ever lands.
Also it helps if you release them over a body of water, like a lake pond or ocean. That way you can see the reflection (cool) and if they crash before the fuel is burned out they just fall into the water and go out (safe).

Steve Gibson on password policies[grc.com]: I mean, I don't get this change it every eight weeks. ... It's not as if passwords are traveling by camel after they've been stolen, going to the bad guys, and so there's, like, some weird eight-week window, like, oh, we're going to change your password so that the stale password no longer works. ... And all this does is make IT people despised because users, who are not dumb, they think, why am I - why do I have to do this? What problem is this solving?
I have used Sky Lanterns numerous times. Quality is very important with something like this. I ordered 10 of these due to the price (yea 140 of them total) then I read the reviews. I then cancelled my order. These really look like they suck. Careful with this item.
If you can get the pre assembled ones, they are well worth the extra money to buy. It is difficult to put the fuel cells on, especially if you do it at night.
They are pretty safe. If they launch correctly they will burn out way before they land. The 'balloon' part should be made of flame resistant stuff too. Common sense helps lots with the safety - watch the wind, launch in a very open space, don't launch in a drought, etc.
Good ones are quite fun, bad ones can be very disappointing.
