    Good. Hope the judge can enforce the money part. Hope the kids get taken away before they turn into idiots like their parents.

    I have no sympathy for them.

    When this story broke. I dropped everything I was doing and was transfixed to the TV, part of me scared to death that I was going to see a 6-year-old fall from the sky because they were running that warning across the TV at the time.

    As a father, it completely fucked me up. To think these scumbags did it as a stunt/joke/prank puts them in the lowest level of hell as far as I'm concerned. Take their kids away for a year and see if that makes them rethink pulling another stunt like this.

    Wasn't this already covered on the running "6-year-old boy is floating away" thread?

    I have a feeling daddy won't be blowing balloons in jail.

    This is an issue on which I believe about 96% of the alumni of the politics board would heartily agree.
