We knew he could get the job, but could he do the job?

I... have no response to that.
2013-06-21 10:52:20 AM  
But what about the orange soda??
2013-06-21 10:52:53 AM

Is it a scandal yet?

Pretty sure when the kid asked for a trip to a different country that he meant a trip ALONE, not with his entire family in tow.

Yep. My thoughts exactly.

2013-06-21 10:58:03 AM  
Maybe he is hiking the Appalachian Trail?

Brain Cloud?  Cloud storage must be buffering

I blame Nargles.

Hm, Dad. Tungurahua means 'throat of fire'. Want to revisit your 'it's not a dangerous area' hypothesis?

I don't often hike in foreign countries, but when I do I split my family up over the jungle trails

Stay lost my friend.....

It's a third world country which is definitely the best type of place to ditch the family when you are making your drug contacts.
2013-06-21 11:33:38 AM  
Let him go, dad.
He's gone.

2013-06-21 11:37:42 AM  
Um... any jungle in South American seems like it would be a moderately dangerous place, or worse.

Better be careful handling virgins around an active volcano, it might go dormant.
2013-06-21 11:42:58 AM  
ARGH!!! I was free!

That awful movie was in heavy rotation on cable with Turk 182.   I need brain bleach!

"The 18-year-old had asked his parents for a trip to a Spanish-speaking country as a graduation present"
Maybe he's trying out his Spanish: "Donde estan las putas?"
2013-06-21 11:44:20 AM  
He's not gone yet in my mind, he said. Maybe not in your mind, but he's gone.
They're going to find him. Eventually. Most likely just what the animals did not drag off to places unknown.
2013-06-21 11:58:10 AM  
I feel that he's particularly mature for his age. He's not the kind of kid that does crazy stuff

Are you stupid?  He was raised by parents that think hiking in South American jungles is a good time to test the need for the buddy system.  He probably walked off a cliff.
2013-06-21 12:08:36 PM  
Theres a lot of shiat that can kill you in a south american jungle.
2013-06-21 12:14:49 PM  
Wait, he was diagnosed with something called a "brain cloud" and he didn't get a second opinion?
2013-06-21 12:46:18 PM  
Was his name Joe?

I bet his hair is caught in one of those sheep eating plants.

Never separate purposely during a hike(which it sounds like they did)

Seriously, why would you do that?
