A simple “It’s A Boy” banner wasn’t good enough?

I can't laugh at this, but I am glad they only hurt themselves. Upstate NY isn't far off rural AL in parts.

Not sure about gender, but these devices (and the parties) are really effective in revealing IDIOTS.

My dad’s the bomb!

This is getting insane. Remember when they used to just cut a cake open or pop some balloons?

Unfortunately, the spawn remains, so the stupidity will live-on. At least its in AZ, and will hopefully remain.

What's a gender reveal party ?

Is that when the bomb goes off, the clothes fly off, and there's a lady underneath who can't go up into the man?

by Anonymousreply 9Last Monday at 1:14 PM

This is so played out. Wasn't this a thing 10 years ago?

It's not really a gender reveal event until you've destroyed several square miles of national forest.

R7, remember when they used to wait until the baby was born and see what sort of genitalia it had?

Remember when gender reveal parties didn’t exist?

by Anonymousreply 19Last Monday at 1:32 PM

At this point they could just shoot someone in the face after saying "it's a boy " and it would be safer.

by Anonymousreply 20Last Monday at 1:32 PM

Isn’t there a safer way they can do this - maybe a piñata with blue or pink confetti inside?

R21, the parks in my town have very specific rules about pinata clean up. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when they discussed the decision to print and put up metal signs about this local scourge.

The dead man’s father said that he was “mechanically inclined”, and that he “could fix and do anything”.

Go figure that explosives would actually explode.

Yelp reviewer David S. must be a DLer. This was his review of the family owned and operated diner:

“4 star average? Are some of you guys high as a kite and have severe munchies to rate that high? It’s dated, dirty, smelly and they gave me expired honey mustard.”

by Anonymousreply 40Last Monday at 2:08 PM

The other thread posted the NYT article, which has a lot more details about the family. As much as my first instinct was to shake my head at someone's stupidity, after reading this the whole thing just seems so sad.

The guy at R33 Is so excited to be having a boy. What if it was a girl? She’d be so unwanted. So sad.

Most guys are not excited when pink comes out.

How awful that these are the people breeding. More sensible people aren't even having kids, and if they are, they probably aren't engaging in this narcissistic, attention-craving behavior.

R38 yeah. My first thought was, “lucky kid/wife”. Old straight men are the fucking worst, and now they get to avoid living with and caring for one while still enjoying his life insurance money.

Many women intuitively know the sex of their baby, anyway, long before medical confirmation or a tacky ‘gotcha’ party trick. My mother guessed correctly every time. It’s just a thing.

At least his stupid bitch wife, who lobbied for the contraption, will have this hanging over her head for the rest of her life.

by Anonymousreply 61Last Tuesday at 2:06 AM

I guess I understand why people find this to be sad, but I've gotten to where I just don't care anymore. These are never people who made just one freakish mistake, these are people who have lived entire lives full of mistakes and poor decisions and never really had any consequences for them, until now.

It's the bystanders who get killed, the firemen who die fighting the fires they started, who I feel sad for. The animals who died when thousands of acres burned down. The people left behind who needed the idiots in question to be responsible people, not dumbfucks who make pipe bombs full of confetti for stupid reasons and then kill themselves or their relatives when they inevitably screw it up.

by Anonymousreply 62Last Tuesday at 2:11 AM

It won't be long until these cannons are banned because the general populace is too stupid to use them and don't need a fucking cannon for anything.

I 100% understand what you are saying R62.

by Anonymousreply 63Last Tuesday at 2:18 AM

Very true R62. I also shake my head at the wives and girlfriends who let these dumbasses get away with this stupid shit for years without calling them on it. I wonder how many kids have been killed by these fuckwits because their mothers didn't want to be a shrew and call these man babies on their shit.

by Anonymousreply 64Last Tuesday at 2:22 AM

If your boyfriend is enormous and stupid and likes to make pipe bombs for fun, you might too scared to call him out on his dumbassery.

[quote] “He was really looking forward to starting a family,” he said of Christopher. “He was really starting to settle down and grow up.”

Ever notice how people who die suddenly are always just on the verge of getting their lives back together? Nobody ever says 'He was a gigantic fuck-up and it was only a matter of time until he did something stupid and killed himself'. No, it's always 'He was ready to leave the past behind and start a new chapter in his life'.

I feel sorry for the kid when he Googles his dad and finds this story, probably after some shithead on the playground tells him how his daddy blew himself up.

by Anonymousreply 68Last Tuesday at 3:19 AM

Yeah, he was really starting to grow up. That's why he thought a pipe bomb would be a good way to announce the gender of his child.
