Many of you may remember the tragic and recent story about the little kid in colorado who supposedly floated away on a hommade balloon. There was an ATS thread on it but I can't find it.

Apparently the whole thing was a HOAX to drum up publicity for the dad!

Sheriff Calls Balloon Boy a "Hoax," Specifies Criminal Charges

And more info:
Balloon dad never shy about his bizarre stunts

From the latter link:

Appearing on the ABC reality TV show "Wife Swap," he told of once passing out in a fast-food restaurant and hearing aliens speak to him. He boasted of his plans to build a flying saucer covered in aluminum foil and send it into a tornado. He pulled his children around a hockey rink on a hovercraft-like device and took them on UFO-hunting expeditions.

My only question at this point is... what is this guy's ATS moniker?!?
