Well... the parents of this guy:



Anyways, 3mnkids sumed up my feelings towards this.  I remember during school that my computer teacher brought this up and all of us were very worried.  Finding out this was all just a hoax just really ticks me off.

...Turns out He actually fell down into A well.

Speaking of balloons and kids.
Anyone see the episode of Mythbusters where they try to float A kid using party balloons.

Because I doubt if that balloon was big enough to lift that kid in the first place.

And besides the Dad had to know the whole time it was being chased through the
air that His son was not on the damn thing as there was no gondola..
Why didn't He let them in on that little piece of info?

Answer: To keep this thing dragging on as long as possible.

I would say a douchebag. And the evidence seems to support that.

Does this remind anyone of that subplot to 12 Monkeys?  The thing where they thought the kid fell down a well, when he was really hiding in his barn.  I know this was all a crock, but it still reminds me of that, maybe that's where the dad got his idea.

The TV news we watched last night said the cost of the 'rescue' effort was one million USD.
Is it reasonable to assume that they would be 'on the hook' for a major portion of that - if not all?
Seems fitting to me.

EDIT:  Whoops, that clip was already posted on this thread!  I thought it was different clip... DOH! 

Anyway, after watching the clip, I have to say, man, the father seems like a real assmonkey, all the yelling and crap, not to mention the kids flipping the bird at the camera.  Great role models there guys.

I read in a paper today he did have a reality show idea lined up with some producer.  This guy is an ass wipe.  But, he's no better than Kate Gosslyn in my book. 

I love the idea of being famous for...well...nothing.

I wasn't going to post in here again because these people just burn my ass. but..

The husband and wife are both terrible parents IMO and maybe even abusive. Making these kids lie on tv, dragging them from one interview to another when the child was obviously ill.. They have put their own selfish needs ahead of their children. People like this will do it every time. Think you have heard the last of these sickos? Not a chance.

The media(news, cable channels like MTV, Bravo, TLC) who pay people to behave badly on television and the people who watch are all contributing to these kinds of people. Examples..

Octomom~ yes, keep having kids that you cant take care of and maybe you can make some money whoring yourself on Dr. Phil
The duggars~ yep, keep popping them out lady, gotta get that football team huh? who cares that the older ones dont have a life but take care of the younger ones. Hey mom! you had them, you take care of them. selfish b***h. yeah, I said it.
Jon and kate~ have a martial meltdown in front of the entire world, have affairs, steal from each other, all in front of the children... Who cares right. They are making money right? who says children should have a stable home environment. Cameras in their face is just fine for healthy development im sure.
Bridzilla~ women paid to behave like tiny tyrants on their period. They more outrageous and ugly their behavior the better. woohoo!!.
wife swap~ more bad behavior. Do any of the people on these shows behave like rational human beings? no, why? because that's not what people want to see.

For the record, I have never watched the shows I have mentioned above because I dont need too, the commercials and the tabloid covers tell me all I need to know.
 
Its a sad commentary on this society that so many get so much enjoyment from watching human train wrecks. And as long as they do people like this man and his wife will continue to put their families at risk for a lifetime of therapy for their 15 minutes of fame.
