This kid is the all time hide and seek champ, I want him on my team!!!
$20 says he'll be on Oprah by the end of the month, any takers?
It just kind of says something that a 6-year-old can hide in an attic for 2 hours and not be found because everyone is too busy watching a balloon...
stupidest thing everrr. but does anyone else find it ironic that his name was Falcon?
Man, if I was that kid's dad, I'd sit him down, explain why what he did was wrong, then I'd stick him in the spare balloon and let that sonofabitch go
7:20!? hide and seek all time champ? Anne frank has him beat by 2 years lol
It's kinda like the whole nation spending a day watching a slow-speed police chase of a white bronco with some dumb athlete inside....
and that kid was home the whole time!! stupid people piss me off.
Have to admit, when I found out he was never on it, i was a bit dissapointed
My country tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing
Land where my fathers died
Land of the pilgrim's pride
From every mountain side,
Let freedom ring.
I was very disappointed when they found him...
America is a fucking beast learn you history. We are fucking beasts. Even if we play a little dirty we are still beasts. We may not be perfect but we are pretty fucking close. Except for the government, our government is fucked.
i'm with you 8:52, how do you not tear the house apart looking for the kid before you start a national panic?
they actually called in a blackhawk helicopter and shut down the denver airport. seriously, wtf?
I was watching baseball. I guess I missed something?
HEY EVERYONE! The parents are Asian and French! So all you foreigners can shut the hell up! We (America) may not be the brightest at times but at least we shower on a regular basis! America could own the world tomorrow if we really wanted to because we're just THAT amazing! Why do you think so many people are sneaking in illegally?
7.38 YOU'VE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME.
HIDE AND GHOST SEEK, REALLY?
No worries the rest if the world. We will take care of your stuff later. Right now there's a fuckin kid in a fuckin balloon. This shit is for real!!!
how does this text turn into "Fuck you!!" "No fuck YOU!" rant. actually I'm not surprised because It's on all of the threads. You are making yourselves look like idiots.
That text is so right.
10:29 how is that fucking fake? I hate deutschebags that go around tfln calling every text fake even if it is get over it you bitch
Lol NPR what a fuckin joke lol
goddamnit check the fucking house before you assume that little kid's on the balloon!!!! Colorado's supposed to be one of the smart states, not fucking Lousiana! GAH STUPID!!
*throws up hands and storms out*
The kid will be Obamas Balloon Czar by 8am. Watch.
My question is, why were the parents not supervising these kids?
I agree totally. CNN just took 4 hours of my life I will never get back.
Um it's called "hide and GO seek"
yep agreed 1 50 America blows.
Americans are fucking retarded, which I say as an American. Mostly because of religious conservatives. Something like only 37% of the country believes in evolution.
haha watching balloon boy on my blackberry consumed half my math class. gotta love life in colorado.
I bet the kid was grounded.
When I found out the kid wasn't in the balloon, I felt like I had been owned by CNN.
It's only because it was unusual that it was important over 1000 kids does dat in the us from flu alone get over it!
Sadly I live in Colorado.
8:04 WTF does "evolution" have to with anything. I'm guessing you believe in centaurs and fucking mermaids too.
How in the hell did people not realize it was fake to begin with? The weight of the kid would have kept the balloon on the ground.
HHAAHA, IT WAS ALL A PUBLICITY STUNT. WOLF BLITZER TOTALLY GOT THE KID TO CONFESS!
Falcon for a name... Given what he just pulled, this proves the apple CAN fall far from the tree.
Agreed I just saw that story and was like wow sucks for whoever that jackass is... Our countr has no life if we start reporting on fucking balloons
Die niggardly balloon boy diiiie
10:53 does prove a point. its not like we're the ones killing our women for being raped
Balloon boy, im happy for you and imma let you finish, but Anne Frank had the best hiding spot of all time.
fuck all you ignorant patriotic assholes. america is not as great as its hyped up to be, and if you honestly believe it is, then you're products of the government. and guess what? i live here too, i just am open minded enough to realize that, like any country, it has its' flaws.
I thinks it's great how people hate on America when it's probably the best country to live in. So suck my dick ass holes. All you little countries think your hot stuff when America could woop your ass. And even think your cool enough to call America ignorant but news flash.... What you just said was ignorant
In the ways of facebook....
Fake. Child was hiding in his house. SETUP
If you are non USA u dint deserve the iPhone
No he was at his girlfriend robin's house
What is this text talking about. Balloons?
@1:26 Good, we don't want you and your piece of shit attitude here either.
I missed this story since I was working, but it sounds like I didn't miss anything.
stupid fucking kid-in-a-box...
it made news in australia
The boy in the balloon is making me thirsty, I mean , these pretzels are
America runs the fucking world, get over it. We are better than you.
1:26 you need to be careful talking like that. Toby Keith is liable to show up in the middle of the night and shove his guitar up your ass and then try to eat your heart. I've seen it happen before.
americans are fucking idiotsssss
Yeah I'm certain it was the balloon we were watching for and not the child that was alone in the balloon, right.
Hahah wasn't a kid stuck in it? And then they found the lil ass hiding in the attick? Hahahahah
Russia agrees. Dumbest country but really nice, soft toilet paper.
hahaha balloon czar its funny cause it tru
yea 4 32 i bet ur sooooo financially stable...lets see you try to move out of the country, but oh wait. that wouldnt work..because you wouldn't be able to survive in any other place but this shithole..because you can only probably speak the basic english language and dont have the human capacity to learn anything else
This is Hilarious. Lmfao
@5:56.... 2 quotes. "ignorance is bliss." "Laugh and grow fat"
We're the happiest country :P
Did yall ever stop to think, what if the kid wouldve been n there? None of yall know that family, u don't know what their intentions were- they probably didn't have an intention... So until u know for a fact, why don't ya back off a bit? Also, how does this make our country look bad? Y should we b embarrassed... Crazy shit happens all over the world... This isn't the craziest thing, by far.
I live in Colorado...how do you think I feel...
nope 3 35..when i graduate im getting the fuck out of this shithole and away from you losers
I like how there's a huge gap between when texts are submitted to when they actually appear, then something like this appears same-day. And it's not even funny it's just news... Disappointment. Tnfl doesn't even mean texts from last night anymore. Sigh.
Hey great thing about this country is... If don't like us GTFO Americans are not stupid humans in general sometimes can lack common sense. fuck you American hating fuck faces
Its an improvement. We watched for 8 years a dub fuck running the country.
I agree with this text. The kid wasn't even in the balloon! He was found hiding in his house, probably because he released the balloon from its tethers and was afraid he would get in trouble. Meanwhile, in the world of things that matter, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News all interrupted coverage of a speech of Obama to bring us...what amounts to a kid letting go of a balloon and watching it float away.
Haha this kid is my hero
heyyyy &7:31... supposedly his parents made him do it.
when the kid was interviewed and asked why he did this, he replied, "daddy told me to put on a show..."
If I was his parent I'd tear that ass up! wtf? They called out the military? Publicity stunt!!!!
First. BOOM. That just happened
Wouldve been good if a the balloon flew over a couple of trap shooters
"...step three, open the box. And that's how you find him...it's a kid in a box!"
Falcons daddy is a fuckin idiot and should be put in a balloon in tha Rockies. And tha mom.. Well she's Asian..
730 you a piece of shit your fucking lucky I don't know who you are
Actually they watched it for two hours.
Good call. Made me laugh.
yeah, anne frank?
mothaafuckers a champ!
9:49... bin laden wins... we still cant find the fucker and he sends a video every few months.
I spend 3 hours watching CNN instead of studying for a midterm and that little sonofabitch lived.
ah yes....an balloon. well said english muffin
What does that even mean?! What is wrong with you people?
No... half the country is dumb as fuck
8:22 I can't believe I'm the first person to get that reference hahaha that video is hilarious!
Why are all Americans fat and stupid?
As a veteran, I can proudly say that I've defended the right for those of you living in the US and talking down on it to do so. Freedom of speech. That's your choice to say what you want. If I had it my way, however, I'd lynch every single one of you.
Oh and keepin' it classy 917
And there wasn't even a kid in it!!!!!
He was hiding in the fucking attic 4 the whole time!! Wat's wrong with this child?! He's name's fucking falcon!!
half the nation should watch you take it in the face........in the face!
It was a fucking child. There's cause for concern, not stupid.
The Little kid ended up being found hiding in a box in the garage.
Kid made a helium balloon out of Mylar and pretended to get in it and float away wile police and military chased it around for 4 hours
Yeah police "throroughly" searched the house. Fucking attention whores
lmao! I think they finally found the boy too.. haha
634 you must be the dumbest fucker in the dumbest country
One.. you put your kid-in-a-box...
Don't know if this was mentioned, but the story did go international. Wasn't just America.
hell yea, impeach obama
Is it hide'n'seek or hide'n'go seek?
I dig that, 11:16. "Americans are just the loudest idiots." It's easy to hate on us, and it's easy to fight back because the States certainly have the numbers, but other countries are not without their own flaws. (It's just not what we Amerixans usually value. Hell, we think we have the best healthcare, when we're really one of the worst and our citizens get fucking heart surgery in Thailand.)
well, 2:26..TNFL doesn't mean texts from last night anymore because it never was that in the first place. try TFLN. kbyeee.
@ 11:14: I love seashells. I love seashell things. I love things with seashells and seahorses on them.
He was probably jerking off to the news reports
You know the whole world was watching this, right?
hey 12:25 u jaded fuk! u might be givng ur honeat opinion but it honestly shouldnt get u anything in america except a much-needed beat down. my honest opinion is get the fuk out!
I love when people insult America but live there...
Fuck Falcon. Only balloon I'm interested in is Henry Gale's on LOST.
It's now text from last minute may as well be twiite texts lol
I have heard of a Jack in the Box but this is a first for a Jaskass in the Box
LMAO. Agreed and this is FTW
why did this story even get so much coverage?
hahahaha this is brillaint
8:09 - you just proved 8:04's statement to be sooooooooooo true. you dumb fuck.
9:56 Oh I know! We're so amazing, our borders are so unprotected people cam easily sneak
Goddamn, sometimes I hate people from this country. We can be so ignorant.
The worst part is now that kid
But if they shot it down they would have found out if there was a kid in it or not
But ther was a kid and a balloon. Thers plenty of stuff to talk about the kid and the balloon
It would have been great if they shot it down. Perfect example of natural selection
It made headlines here in England, the whole country was laughing at Americans watching an balloon
lmao wtf is wrong with you ppl........ you guys are from the same damn country and still insults eachother.................
Dumb parents too! Apple doesn't fall to far from the tree
THANK YOU!!!!! FUCK!!!
If you don't like it then leave
Yaaaaa what hsppeneddd ????
So I stopped reading about halfway down the page. Here's the thing, it was all a publicity stunt. The parents were trying to launch a new TV series. So they "searched the house" and called the cops. Americans are not stupid for caring if a small child was airborn. I'm not saying they aren't stupid, just not for that.
"Meanwhile, in the world of things that matter, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News all interrupted coverage of a speech of Obama to bring us...what amounts to a kid letting go of a balloon and watching it float away."
10:27...since when does anything about Obama matter?
ahahahaha you are sooooo right!!
My friend was gonna fly to the balloon with a parachute
7:42 I HATE YOU YOU'RE LUCKY YOU DON'T KNOW WHO I AM
They need to make a Southpark episode out of this incident. After all, it took place in CO!
you arent financially stable because youre a douchebag loser. thats why you need an american education!
How did they think a kid got inside of a SEALED helium baloon in the first place?!
bahaha!! i must admit my family was one of those dumbasses watching this on the news.
I'm just curious as to why the fuck there was a balloon in their backyard... Random much?
7:20, ploys like this are against the sanctioned rules of hide'n'go seek , says the 1936 Neunen convention
I'm really ashamed to live in the same neighborhood as the fucking moronic parents! And it really sux that this is what fort Collins is famous for now. Cuz in all honesty this is a fucking kick ass place.... But we unfortunatly attract idiots too! :-(
What balloon ? Details please !
why can no one spell the word definitely?
also...these pretzels are making me thirsty
I agree we don't want you here
no one's stopping you. just go or stop your bitching
Vladimir Putin haha that name NEVER get's old.
I had to deal with right wing, bible thumping, kickback deal making backwoods crooks running the country for 8 years, if you liked that sort of thing just move to appalacia marry your cousin and get a transistor radio so you can listen to rush limbaugh tell you the reason he cant own the rams is not because hes a fucking moron, but that the "far left" is tearing down conservatidm.
Half the world was watching it, made headlines over here!!! :(
Hahaha so called this the second they said his brother was the last one to see him haha didn't stop my prof saying that somebody probably killed him and staged it all haha oh and GO AMERICA
You have diabetes see a doctor
Dude sending a funny text is the whole point of TFLN
341 my case rests! when you graduate.... FROM YOUR AMERICAN EDUCATION... Thennnnn you can get the fuck out! do the math: 1 graduate 1 diploma - 1 dumbshit (whos education obviously hasnt benefited them yet) = 1 less fuckwit America doesnt need.
2 06 (2) im talking about graduating college you stupid peice of shit...dumb ass american
Woot wooy for Colorado!
122:25 and 1:26 for all I care you can go suck a dick and move where ever the fuck you want but why do you want to ruin it for the rest of up you stupid ignorent cock sucking ass wipes
In soviet Russia country fuck you!!!
you're a stupid ignorant motherfucker 1:41 and turn to America because you have no other place you belong. I want to ruin it for the rest of you because you're all fucking loser Americans, the gayest most retarded people in the world. Fucking losers.
This family was on Wife Swap. The mother of Falcon gave the family that she was swapped with a LOT of crap for being overly cautious with their kids. Thought it was kind of ironic...
I thought he was at his friend Eagles house!
That was the dumbest shit ever never thought as a people we would stup so low.
1:26/1:50 "once I graduate" considering your still a high school student and don't contribute to society I'm sure America could give a fuck less what you do
And if you live here and don't support your country, and represent it even though we have dumb fucks ruling it, that's just fucking sad, so you should leave. Btw everyone has a heritage even if they are 'muts' dumbfuck
im not a mut u dipshit im native american so suk my big brown cock!!!
Fuckin balloon boy i hope he fell out and went SPLAT
DAMN ASIANS. Naming their kids Falcon. WTF. ASIANS SUCK.
1:26 americas not good enough for you yet here you are getting your education! keep talking out of your ass dumbshit! hopefully when you graduate you'll be smart enough to know what a dumb fuck you are!
half the nation just spent an hour watching a balloon fly around with what we thought was a 6 year old inside. how does that make us dumb?
4:28 yes!!! I couldn't of said it better!!! The douchers wanted the attention.
well some of us 3 43 you stupid american dont have the financial ability to move out of this shithole yet
hm native american...awesome pocohantus
This is the stupidest fucking country ever. I hate it here. I hate the fact that I was born here and raised here. And dont worry you stupid useless patriotic fucktards, i'm getting the fuck out of here when I graduate and moving to my country of origin, which is ten times better than this shithole.
can someone explain what happened...
In our defense, we thought a human was in it.
BACON IS GOOD FOR ME
lmao i love this so hard
Yeah a balloon that had a fucking KID in it. Seriously, if you didn't care in the first place you wouldn't have watched. But some people do fucking care when it's something like that. It's actually nice to see that there are some people that care about other's lives. Think about it, when you have a 6 year old kid put him in a fucking balloon and we can talk about how stupid you are for watching.
HAHAHAHAHA, so dumb
what a smart little boy.
It's because the real journalists were pushed aside when 24 "news" came to cable. *sigh* We are truly an ignorant society.
This is why I don't watch mainstream news
Stations. NPR all the way!
lol I'm from CO and I thought it was hilarious (probably because I found out after it happened and I didn't waste 4 hours watching the balloon).
Hahaha I was gunna post one about that too. Lol
8:49 made me jizz my pants
What, you couldn't look at that balloon and see it was not capable of lifting anything as heavy as a kid?
haha 8:09 put evolution in quotations like some mythical concept. way to be an idiot
some people should be able to have kids. those parents are two of them.
Get the fuck out then pal.
In a hawaiin shirt and fucked over not ducked over stupid fucking. Iphone
1:45 - I'm American, Germanic blood through and through. Hail Teutonia motherfucker.
THIS GUY IS THE WORLDS BEST HIDE AND GHOST SEEK CAHMPION!
The pretzel conglomeration strikes again!!!!
Ya know Hitler had a ok idea, it would have been a GREAT idea if only he included half Asian/French storm chasing asshats who name their kids Falcon, into his master plan.
9:56 you do realize that you just described Americans by noting the parent's ethnic background right? Read yur history, we're all of immigrant background
4:29 your a dumbass too, Apples chief designer is English, if it wasnt for him the iPhone would look like almost every other piece of crap made in America
I now have a greater desire to build a foil flying thing!
All of you are dumb asses! There might have been a fucking kid in that balloon
that kid needs a fat dick in his ass for hiding
Americans are just the loudest idiots. Russia, you cannot hate on us with Putin still pulling your strings.
Fuck you, you don't like this country get the fuck out
I watched that on the news before work! HAH! Looked like an already popped Stove Top Popcorn! HAHA! Ready to go!
Kid said he had to hide for the show... Publ. Stunt!
I will give you credit on that one!
Don't know, don't care. Kinda have an idea from the info provided here. Still don't care
Sad part is only a fraction were stoned.
Why the heck are we saying Impeach Obama on a text that is talking about the balloon kid. Idiot, go to canada or some shit if you don't like our President. P.S it doesn't look like Obama is getting impeached any time soon! Dumb ass ! I am guessing you are a 17 year old "hard" white red neck. Grow the FUCK UP! Deal with it!
to 10:53, and all the others who are as stupid.... HE COULD NEVER HAVE BEEN IN THERE - THAT BALLOON WOULDT LIFT A MOUSE, HOW FUCKING RETARTED ARE YOU ALL, YOU'D NEED ENOUGH HELIUM TO FILL FOOTBALL STADIUM (WITH A ROOF) TO LIFT A 6YR OLD BOY. i think im done
it would maybe make some sense if any of those things came from the same country...or if those countries didnt now have better healthcare than we do
hey 10:27 you fucking genius obviously CNN MSNBC and FOX didn't cover this because they knew there wasn't a kid in that balloon. At the time everyone thought there was, and it's better to be sure there isn't a little kid floating around in a balloon rather than just write it off as attention whoring.
8:04, they were only half Asian. 8:12, cut back on the Limbaugh (or should i say DIMbaugh)
I don't get it. What happened??
It was a fucking hot air balloon dumbasses, yes a child can ride in one of those
1:26 Fuck You and Your Mother, just because she had you!
I would have been scared shitless to be inside of that thing at 7000 feet. Though it still beats US Airways. Zing.
What happened on the 9th November anyway?
americans are so ethnocentric - totally ignorant
ON THE NEWS THE KID CONFESSED THAT IT WAS ALL FOR THE SHOW!!!
Fuck you it was entertaining
dumbest country... no shit!!! HAHA
Guys, i just figured out were Bin Laden is....
Also thankyou guys so much for being blind patriotic Americans, you make my day. Just to keeep this lively debate going, FUCK YOU AMERICA, EAT MY DICK OR I'LL PISS ON YOUR FLAG AND THEN LATER FUCK YOUR MAMA'S....in the arse!
I love life...
2:33 is the most retarded thing iver ever read.
Did anyone in your country stop and think how much helium would be needed to lift an average 6yr old boy?
Terrorist hunter looking for all those in need of a good ass kickin and a corn Cobb shoved up there ass with a bomb and send them into there own people lol
hey 742, 730 was only half right; you're a fucking idiot!!!
9:05 what do black men and white dick have to do with this thread? i am german too, but i am thoroughly confused by your statement.
Another fake text from TFLN
news this morning said it was staged by the whole family. A family that's been on Wife Swap TWICE. Total publicity stunt. Kid was probably just doing what he was told.
The kid puked on live tv... now THAT'S entertainment.
Lol more than an hr - all for nothing - kinda like obama
Hi, I'm a non-North American country. U may know me from some of my work-The Nazi Party, Socialism, Failed Universal Health Reform, Margret Thatcher....I just thought I would stop by an say hey. Oh an just wanted to throw a shout out to the US, thanks for ya know saving us in every failed attempt we've made at life. Ur the best!
Probably not a good idea to accidentally double post calling people stupid...
The family has already been on wife swap...wouldn't be surprised if this was a publicity stunt.
Thanks for noticing!
11:25, it's people like you who hold the greatness of our country back. It's not a c o m p e t i t i o n - or if it is, that's why we're losing education, science, health care, women's rights, etc to the rest of the world.
this isn't a tfln...this is just someone thinking they sent a hilarious text and wanting everyone else to know it too.
Dad needs the beat that kid's ass!! Hiding in the attic!! Beat his ass!
and to be fair, falcon is an awesome name for a kid.
What was the story in the first place
basically a sibling told the police that their brother jumped into a helium balloon and so police launched a rescue effort to save the boy and the balloon. turns out he was in a box in the attic.
LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO 3:24 !
everyone just shut the fuck up before i jizz on all ya'll
CHIIIILLLLLL and get a sense of humor
@1:36 Yeah, that's really funny. You must be so proud.
UFO= unidentified flying object. I guess every one saw a UFO for 4 fuckin hours
this isn't a tfln...this is just someone thinking they sent a hilarious and wanting everyone else to know it too.
NPR... Heh heh heh.
That's a good one!
Oh, wait, were you serious?
What's this? Mr. Balloons? We got Mr. Balloon-Hands over here... No way. No fucking way.
Are you kidding? Have some respect you jerk. That's what separates us from a rat...as humans we're suppose to care about another human's life, especially an innocent 6 year old who could have been in a very dangerous situation...thankfully he wasn't ever in the ballon to begin with!
What balloon? what kid??
i dont get the pretzel jokes
Americans are stupid as a whole but being able t write that is what makes it great. And the cops r the stupid ones for starting it the will search my car for hours for drugs lol
Hilarious! It's true... But I would define the media as the cause of the stupidity
Reminds of that movie 12 monkeys
The part where they have the story of the kid in a well and it turns out he wasn't in the well and he faked it and that the guy really was from the future and it was only a few months till the world got ducked over by a guy in. A hawiannsgirt with crazy hair.. Ah the classics
Truth! Fucking dumb!
Hey 7:06 your a dumbass we all know your not drunk so stfu
and toby keith is shit...an American, therefore a worthless loser, enough said.
Correction 1:26/1:45 but 1:50 too
I'd much rather watch a kid that might be in a balloon than obama speak any day. I kind of wished that Falcon would have been in the balloon when it landed
^^^^ they were doing a project you motherfucking dumbass bitch.
10:29 why is this fake..? it's definately not.
yea 4 50...lick my bum your inferior peice of twat
Yeah...fuck I did...damn me and my drunken care about society!!!
FUCK YOU YOU GODDAMN IGNORANT EUROPHILE
It's stupid. S t u p i d. Not stoopid Learn to spell!
1:32 and 1:36...fuck you too douche bags. This is 1:26 talking, and America sucks shitty asshole. You're probably some stupid muts who don't even have a heritage. Go fuck a Mexican.
