'nother one down

A dad-to-be in upstate New York was killed when a device he was building for a gender reveal party exploded, state police said Monday. 

Christopher Pekny, 28, was working on the device for his child’s gender reveal party in the Catskills town of Liberty when it blew up just before noon on Sunday, cops said.

  2. At some point they are going to have to open a whole new sub category in the Darwin awards. But, in this case, he obviously spread his genes before the stupidity kicked in.

    1. Exactly. It is letting a bunch of people who couldn't give a shit less that your soon to be child is either mae or female. Who does this shit?

    2. Its usually a device to explode and throw out pink or blue streamers or glitter to announce what gender the new baby is. As opposed to just telling people or sending out baby announcments.

      Its also used by some people to announce the gender the child will be raised as; as opposed to its actual biological gender.

  4. Upstate?
    See that is the problem with this state. More than 75% of this state is above where that town is. Yet these bastards think that anything above Poughkeepsie is pretty much Canada. Hence, our part of the state is inconsequential.
    I hate those flatlanders, so very much.

    1. My first wife’s brother lived in Neversink, just outside of Liberty. Never realized that the north had just as many hillbillies and rednecks as the South until I visited.

  5. Liberty?
    Did his twisty side locks get tangled up in the detonation device

  6. My first year or so in the Army when somebody said he was from "upstate New York," I thought that meant Albany or Buffalo. I was surprised to learn it meant any place outside NYC. Talk about arrogance on the part of the NYC people and inferiority for the upstaters.

  7. At least damages were small. The El Dorado Fire in California was started by a gender reveal device and burned 23,000 acres.

  8. In a moment of clarity he realized what he was *actually doing* and "unintentionally" crossed wires.

  9. "Gender reveal" parties are just another way to suck presents from family & friends for the new baby. As-if showers weren't enough of a ploy!

  10. Good! Fuck him! One less of these gender reveal assholes is a good thing.

  11. My girlfriend's niece and her husband did one of those gender reveals, for what was then their upcoming child, a little over a year ago. I had never heard of such a thing and jokingly asked what the hell. I don't get what the big deal is but whatever floats their boat...
