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.

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?

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

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 Anonymous||reply 40||Last 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.

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.

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.

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.

[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 Anonymous||reply 68||Last 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.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
