Is it really? I can't see the news. I just saw it when I was eating lunch.

I was thinking about how if there's a kid in there and it lands safely, he'll get a made for TV movie, but if it crashes horribly, he'll be forgotten instantaneously because no one likes a story where a kid dies.

As it turns out, the uncle that told them the kid was in the balloon was busy diddling the poor bastard.

I think.

I'm thinking the dad wanted to get his balloon launch televised, and made up the story of his kid being in there.

Dad may or may not believe in wacky ideas about brain waves and aliens.

I thought it was funny that the kid who flew off was named "Falcon".

This reminds me of that priest who tied a bunch of balloons to himself for a fund raiser and floated out over the ocean. I don't know if they ever recovered his body.

It'd be so memetastic if that kid Falcon grew up, became a raging alcoholic, got into a barfight, and threw...wait for it... a punch.

Is it just me, or do I smell publicity stunt?

Anytime a police helicopter has to take off it's an automatic $5000 bill to the tax payers.

I remember them from an old Wife Swap episode. They're pretty zany. They probably got addicted to being on TV.

I bet the father does coke from time to time. He seems long term coke head crazy.

One wonders why the police don't try this tactic more often.

i would watch the child protective services show...one like to catch a predator, except they show some family getting their kids taken away cause the were neglecting their kids, i guess it would be more like a human version of Animal Cops than the predtor shows, but it would make dramatic viewing
