The tribbles disappear. The balloons do not (except the rare one that goes poof). You cannot spam tribbles all over the place non-stop, because the popper does not produce tribbles non-stop, either.
The balloon one does nothing but shoot balloons.

Tell me it's not fast. Go on.

Your PC will crawl to a halt also when some dufus spams THE ENTIRE EXCHANGE SECTION on ESD with balloons to a point that you can't see ANYTHING other than balloons throughout and the frame rate drops to single digits that it becomes hard to even move your god-damn mouse cursor to change instance.

Go to Options ---> Video
Scroll down to Max Physics Debris Objects
Slide the slider all the way to the left and BOOM!
No more balloons reducing your framerate to the equivalent of Tribble droppings.

Now that's an actual good idea.
Debris/decal physics serve little to no purpose, anyway. They all disappear about four seconds after they emerge (except those silly balloons), like the big generator's blow-out parts in CSE.
At best you get some little fun soccer-kicking them around until they become translucent and poof onto the ether.
