    Notice how Dad's "translation" is absolutely nothing like what the kids said. And check out the body language of the all kids.

    If someone wasn't getting a spanking before, they are now. :lol:

    This story was just so stupid and a waste of time. Then again, it was better than having to listen to Arianna Huffington on the Ed Show. :eusa_eh:

    I think the worm has just turned on this story. Now its going to be about the dad pulling this shit, and the story is going last a LOT longer now than it would have before.

    Guy was on that wife-swap show a couple years ago. Seems that he was building this balloon in hopes of getting a storm chasers/UFO show on TLC or Discovery type of channel.

    am i the only one who saw it....they swapped her with a family that was overprotective of their kids....

    so far i havent seen any comments by that family....

    i just dont know....i am too paranoid of the cosmic forces to think a parent would pull a stunt like this....tempting fates and all...pretending your child is in danger etc...

    now in reality...damn that word...the father is a building contractor according to what he said on wife swap...they are hobbists stormchasers..what ever floats your boat...
