Default Couldn't help but crack a smile...

I played at a gig in town a few days ago and one fellow said "It would take about half an hour to blow up the bag wouldn't it?" LOL

Piping is certainly good for our lung power. I used to teach high school science. In one class, we were making balloon-powered rockets to demonstrate Newton's third law (for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction), and I had brought in a bag of water balloons. I was surprised at how much trouble the hale and hearty teenage boys were having blowing up the balloons, whereas I could blow up balloon after balloon with one breath each, with relatively little effort. I attribute my balloon-blowing ability to all the conditioning I acquired from piping.

It only takes me two or three breaths to blow up the bag.

Why would it take half an hour?

You ought to try a large sized synthetic bag; it's like blowing up a damn beach ball.

A member of my pipe band brought his pipes to his job one day a few years ago. It ended with that one of his fellow workers fainted out and got a concussion after hitting a table. Poor guy... ;)
