So the Dad in the Balloon Hoax...
    #11264729 - 10/17/09 12:08 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Said at 5:30am that he would have a huge announcement to make at 10am.

So he comes out and says "I'm getting so many questions that I've brought this box here for you to write down your questions on a piece of paper and I will answer them by 730pm tonight."

The reporters ask him if this is a hoax and he replies "No hoax."  And walks away.

That was his huge announcement.  Guy is fuckin' with the media and he's my hero.  :lol:

His kid let it slip on Larry King Live that it was all just to get TV attention.

He's got a short leash.  I don't think he can pull too many of these things until the media moves on.

I think it would be great if he answered the questions and then attached the box of answers to a small balloon filled with helium and let it go...

If what I read about the guy is true, then I hope he gets some jail time.

http://www.thestar.com/news/world/article/711813--was-balloon-drama-all-a-gag

Why hide the kid in the rafters while all the authorities were worried about his safety, being that they thought he was inside the balloon.  That dad clearly wanted to lead them to believe that the kid was in danger.  As a result, valuable resources were wasted just to give this asshole some desperate attention.

Hey, maybe I'm wrong, but all signs point to attention-whore-ism on his part, and I hope he gets grilled for it.

Can't disagree :shrug:

Still, who is more deserving of jail time?  Responsible drug users or exploitative fathers?

Him going to jail just further adds to the drama, which means more lulz for us :awesome:

how badly did he hurt his kid though?

insensitive yes but is it worthy of a foreign body temporarily removing the father from his child or punishing him with a monetary fine...and what would a fine accomplish?

I thought we already came to the conclusion that this whole thing is a clever plan hatched by the gov't and using the media to draw attention away from what REALLY HAPPENED yesterday- aliens.

Well, at the very least, he might have lied to police or whathaveyou.  Hell, maybe all the hype about the kid wasn't his fault in the first place, but he certainly did seem to want to keep up the facade.

Why call the FAA before 911 if his kid was really in danger?

The kid clearly is not having a good time.

http://www.9news.com/news/article.aspx?storyid=125192

FORT COLLINS (AP) - The 6-year-old boy at the center of the runaway balloon saga got sick twice on national television when he and his father were asked during separate TV interviews what he meant about his comment that "we did this for a show."
Advertisement

Sheriff Jim Alderman says his investigators believe there was no hoax, but will seek a new interview with the family after the CNN broadcast to clarify the statement.

During an ABC interview, Falcon Heene said Friday: "Mom, I feel like I'm going to vomit." He then left the room with his mother and could be heard gagging.

During a live interview on NBC shown simultaneously on Friday, Falcon threw up into a container when his father was answering the same question.

Falcon vanished around the time that a homemade helium balloon floated away from his home, setting off a national uproar as authorities scoured the plains of northern Colorado for the youngster.

He probably beat the shit out of his kid after that interview.

More importantly, why does everyone seem to care so much? Yeah the guy's a douche, and I'm sure local goverment will be charging him for every penny that was spent on this whole thing.

By continuing to talk about it you're giving him the attention he wanted in the first place. Let's drop the moral condemnations and move along folks, because there's nothing to see here.

The best way to cure an attention whore is to give them attention (just not the kind they want :tongue2:)
