I Think Someone Watches Too Many Movie Previews   2 comments

Interesting side note to the “balloon boy” story: apparently, Richard Heene (father of Falcon) is an end-of-the-worlder.

The lawyer for Robert Thomas, an associate of Richard Heene who says he helped the latter develop various ideas for a TV show, said she thought Heene had become obsessed with a quest for TV fame.  Maybe not for its own sake, she said, but so that he could make a lot of money in a hurry in order to prepare for the upcoming end of the world.  Heene “believes the world is going to end in 2012,” said Thomas’s attorney, Linda Lee.  “Because of that, he wanted to make money quickly, become rich enough to build a bunker or something underground, where he can be safe from the sun exploding.”

Mr. Heene, a quick note: if the sun explodes, burying yourself in the crust of the earth is going to protect you precisely not in the slightest.  This guy had the wrong idea, trying to get on “reality TV”.  He’s a natural Internet Nut.

  1. My god, this story just gets better and better.

  2. Maybe he just needed the bunker in order to house a Manhattan project geared towards developing FTL travel?
