I read that as "panties begin fanning out". Still seems appropriate.

/I'm a moron
 
2009-10-15 05:14:06 PM  
How do they know he isn't still up there. Like, he could have fallen off in a cloud or something.
 
2009-10-15 05:14:08 PM  
I hope they find that boy...
 
2009-10-15 05:14:16 PM  
damn... who thinks the kid jumped ship?
 
2009-10-15 05:14:47 PM  
He's hiding in the barn.

I really don't have anything to add to this
 
2009-10-15 05:15:04 PM  
so one of his brother's "saw" him near the balloon and it sets off this chain of insanity. he's probably around the block but the family will never be able to admit it.
 
2009-10-15 05:15:04 PM  
What balloon?
 
2009-10-15 05:15:06 PM  
Was there a lot of poo in the balloon?

If there's no poo, he was never in there.

Check under his bed.

mekkab: damn... who thinks the kid jumped ship?

Is the terminal velocity of a 6 year old enough to kill him?
 
2009-10-15 05:15:10 PM  
I don't think the chances of finding this kid are very high.
 
2009-10-15 05:15:11 PM  
My guess: The kid was never in the balloon. He got scared when he set it loose and he's hiding somewhere nearby.
 
2009-10-15 05:15:14 PM  
Has any news stations talked about the apparently falling object from the balloon in Mr.Tom's link? Just wondering.
 
2009-10-15 05:15:16 PM  
I want to believe...

\Aliens took him
 
2009-10-15 05:15:23 PM  
He'll return in 10 earth years, although to him only moments will have passed. Oh, the zany adventures he'll have.
 
2009-10-15 05:15:26 PM  
I can see the headline now, CPU is investigating parents of missing boy for negligence, endangering a child, or something along those lines...
 
2009-10-15 05:15:27 PM  
LineNoise: Like, he could have fallen off in a cloud or something

he alit onto a cumulonimbus and walked away on the cotton candy puffs
 
2009-10-15 05:15:45 PM  
Ahh, I just got back online. I see there are no updates then.
 
2009-10-15 05:15:56 PM  
move discussion here

You can't tell me what to do; I'm not moving.
 
2009-10-15 05:16:28 PM  
Headso: Is the terminal velocity of a 6 year old enough to kill him?

he'd float like a feather

/in a beautiful world

NO WAI!!1! Y REELLY THIK SO?
 
2009-10-15 05:16:43 PM  
I hate to say it, but if he was in there, he probably fell out to his death. I'm guessing and hoping its all a publicity hoax.
 
2009-10-15 05:16:43 PM  
"Up" was not meant to be taken so seriously.
 
2009-10-15 05:16:51 PM  
Is the kid's name Icarus, by any chance?
 
2009-10-15 05:16:56 PM  
I like the old thread.
 
2009-10-15 05:17:02 PM  
He's walking on sunshine now.
 
2009-10-15 05:17:03 PM  
Pure attention grab. Shocked the kid hasn't been "found" yet.
Hopefully they will have made enough from "Wife Swap" to cover the rescue effort expenses they will be sued for.
 
2009-10-15 05:17:09 PM  
Somebody is getting an ass-whooping, either the dad or the kid.
 
2009-10-15 05:17:11 PM  
Is a missing boy as important as a missing white girl?

/too soon?
 
2009-10-15 05:17:13 PM  
Fly, Colt, Fly!

/oops, wrong thread (again) :)
 
2009-10-15 05:17:13 PM  
I WANT TO BEALIVE
 
2009-10-15 05:17:13 PM  
I think he is hiding somewhere because he is afraid he will be in trouble for letting the ballon go.
 
2009-10-15 05:17:14 PM  
I have him stashed in my shed. You'll see him again in about 18 years.

That's how it works in all the video games.

This whole situation simply reinforces my belief that Wolf Blitzer is an illiterate cock.
 
2009-10-15 05:17:33 PM  
He is "tasting the Rockies". I don't mean as dead in the mountains, he landed on the Coors factory!
 
2009-10-15 05:17:36 PM  
Wait, what happened?
 
2009-10-15 05:17:38 PM  
I hope the boy will be found alive. Where was adult supervision when it was needed?

/I sound cranky - I'll move on

Obama's America, on full display.
 
2009-10-15 05:17:56 PM  
So, if we're in a new thread, do we have to repeat all the stuff we were repeating back there?
 
2009-10-15 05:17:57 PM  
I was in a meeting and they had this on the TV before the presentation went up.

How fast was that thing flying?

Yes, I know this has probably been asked a million times already.
 
2009-10-15 05:18:00 PM  
regardless of outcome fark has found a new cliche dare I say
 
2009-10-15 05:18:00 PM  
Man too bad the kid is missing, this story has so much win. First of all, I want one of those. Fly over uptown Butte with like a cartoon bad guy black top hat and drop pies on people. Secondly, that wreckage debris looks like something out of Roswell. Do you realize how many people you could f**k with by crashing that in an open area somewhere and bein like 'LOOK OMG WTF IS THAT?' And finally the kid's name is FALCON. I mean, everything in this story is pure awesome.

Except the kid vanishing that is :-/
 
2009-10-15 05:18:01 PM  
I still think that he "accidentally" let the balloon go free, and he took off after it.
Probably pedaling hell-bent-for-leather the last direction he saw it go.
 
2009-10-15 05:18:07 PM  
Fifty bucks says the kid's hiding under the bed.
 
2009-10-15 05:18:08 PM  
Crap CNN says that people saw an object fall from the balloon.
 
2009-10-15 05:18:09 PM  
Hey, new thread! If at all possible, could everyone re-post everything they posted in the last thread?
