Gender reveals… probably time to do away with them all together now, eh?
I mean, what is the success rate on them anyway?
Dad can’t hit a baseball and all of the sudden you’re on the front page of every news source, the unathletic idiot. Or mom tosses up a moonshot, it goes 6 feet over your head and explodes off-camera. Now you’re both idiots…
In another example of stupidity from a gender reveal party, a man in Kingston, New Hampshire caused a massive explosion that rattled homes up to 20 miles away after he detonated 80 POUNDS of Tannerite at a local quarry – all to find out that he’s having a boy.
The explosion reportedly knocked pictures off of walls, caused foundation damage to local homes, and scared neighbors who thought the town was being hit by an earthquake.
Authorities say that Tannerite is legal to own and use as an over-the-counter explosive target, and that it’s their belief that the couple had permission to be on the property where the detonation occurred.
But 80 pounds?
For reference, here’s what 80 lbs of Tannerite looks like – blowing up a car.
Police say that the man who caused the explosion has turned himself in and is cooperating, but any charges are still undetermined at this time.
UPDATE: Kingston police say approx. 80 pounds of Tannerite were used at that gender reveal party that caused a massive explosion that shook homes for miles. Man who detonated it has turned himself in to police and is cooperating. Police haven’t decided on charges. @UnionLeader
