If a story happens in Florida it gets the Florida tag.
 
2021-10-21 10:43:08 AM  
Is there a white van in the middle or just a corpse?
 
2021-10-21 10:43:25 AM  
Does it come with a cornhole? I heard Gabby loved cornholing.

She could cornhole with the best of them.

That's it? Really... that's it?

That's a high school jock with a combine and a six pack of bud driving through a field, that isn't a maze.

This is the agricultural equivalent of people using lots of exclamation points when offering condolence messages.

People are bringing up "missing non-white girl that got no publicity stories " and I just thought of this one:  https://www.wsbtv.com/news/loca​l/gwinn​ett-county/boyfriend-charged-in-death-​of-woman-found-in-gwinnett-place-mall/​770427122/

1.  Asian woman goes missing.
2.  Body found in abandoned Subway in dead mall food court 2 weeks later.
3.  Boyfriend who killed her picked up 6 months later.

You figure it would have gotten more publicity based on the mall food court angle.  I found it pretty macabre.

Now it's Tampon Bay.

Seems that this is the biggest news story since MH370 went missing.

Blame Nancy Grace.

And not just for Missing White Girl Syndrome. I'm sure there's a bunch of sh*t we can hang on that band-saw voiced vulture.

We really are in peak white girl syndrome with this one. I have never seen the media and the populace so obsessed with one girl. They've been bad before, but this case has reached new levels. In the search for Gabby, 7 other bodies have been found. Can anyone repeat any of their names off the top of their heads?

Yeah. Modern corn mazes plant a dense field of corn, then come back a little later (when the corn is about knee high), with a GPS enabled tractor with a tiller on the back and the design map uploaded to it.  The tractor tells them precisely where to till to make the intended design.

Here's an example:

As you can tell, this one looks... different.

But to be fair I'm not sure it was thought out enough ahead of time.  You have to till the maze pretty early in the season.  Gabby didn't die a couple months ago (late August), so a corn maze with a tribute would have to be kind of thrown together last minute regardless.

Exactly...because when people think of corn, they think of Florida, right? ;)
 
2021-10-21 11:01:56 AM  
So the maze leads to a dead end?

Maybe the corpse of Brian Laundrie is buried at the centre of the maze.

A maze in tribute of someone who couldn't be found for a while is the most ill conceived memorial since the Rachel Corrie pancake breakfast.

Yikes. That is beyond tacky.

I drove past a car with one of those "in loving memory of" stickers on the back. It got me thinking of when the car is sold does the new owner keep the sticker on there? If they remove it will they be haunted by the dead guy?

Why does it matter what other people care about.

Are you talking about the ones that take up the whole back window?

I think they can peel off so in the event you get a new car...its not a pain in the ass to move it.

I dunno. I don't put stickers on my car unless it's the registration and inspection stickers.

No one on the road needs to see my personal business and I don't care about theirs's either.

That's why I hope her boyfriend is dead. So this will all go away.

oh no...the story won't go away because the media will go after Brian's parents.

Already I've seen the news people--talking heads discussing their fate...

when they are hung out and dry, THEN the story will go away.

"This National story has not just helped find Gabby, but has helped find other missing persons. To Gabby's family: our thoughts and prayers are with you!" Hunsader farms said in a post on their Instagram.


To the owner of Hunsader farms- she's not going to f#ck you.

Maybe the owners of this farm were in on the crime, and therefore had more time to plan.

I love the theory, but this:

Doesn't show any evidence of planning.

If anyone is still paying attention--that was him they found in Florida.    Let them rest in peace.  Sad farking story all around.
