A boy named Falcon, whose parents once appeared on a show I refuse to watch called “Wife Swap” supposedly took off in a weather balloon he and his dad had built yesterday. The nation watched as the balloon floated about 50 miles before touching down in a field, thinking all along that a terrified 6 year old boy was inside and in great danger.

Turns out the kid was hiding at home the whole time, and the family is now deflecting allegations that the whole thing was a publicity stunt.

Oh, and here’s a “music video” Falcon participated in called “Not Pussified”. Alrighty then.

    My thought all along was, have the parents and authorities checked every square inch of the house and surrounding property. As a parent that would be your instinct…”this can’t be happening, he’s here, he’s safe”. And that video, WOW, I will not complain about my neighbors again!

    Looks like these lowlifes will do anything to repeat the thrill of their 15 minutes of fame.

    My honest to God first reaction upon seeing the balloon…There is no kid in that thing! It shows no sign of carrying any kind of weight. It is an obvious stunt.

    I could only understand about 1/8 of that nonsense.

    I feel like setting them all adrift in a balloon….

    That “music video” may be the most disturbing thing I have ever seen.
