I understand that expectant parents are excited to share the news with family and friends and the rest of the world, but the blowing things up and craziness of gender reveals have gotten a bit out of hand. Like this one from last year, when a U.S. Border Agent decided to blow up a target filled with Tannerite blew up with a plume of blue smoke to say, “Hey! We’re having a boy!” ; but the presentation went sideways causing a wildfire that burned 47,000 acres or 79 miles of acreage, and needed 800 fire fighters and cause 8 million dollars in damage, which the border agent has agreed to pay for the damages. Can we just go back to putting storks in the yard and letting people know what your going to have later rather than blowing stuff up. Below is the video of the moment when the agent started the wildfire and you can hear him say…pack it up and lets get out, as he realized what he had done.
Be Just And Fear Not
A father in Arizona pleaded guilty to sparking a massive wildfire, during his gender reveal party last year, that ended up burning more than 45,000 acres. Authorities said the fire caused more than $8 million in damages; the father has been ordered to begin paying it back. pic.twitter.com/AJgkmLS7Nt— CBS Evening News (@CBSEveningNews) November 28, 2018
