    When Your Baby's Gender Turns Deadly

    Wow. You just can't make this shit up. Really? Why does everything have to be so over the top? WTF is the matter with an old fashion announcement or a Tweet?

    Australian gender reveal party goes wrong as car bursts into flames

    (CNN)A gender reveal party on Australia's Gold Coast took a dramatic turn as a car used to spew blue smoke suddenly ignited.

    The Queensland Police Service released footage of the incident, which took place on April 18 last year, to warn about the dangers of 'burnouts,' an increasingly popular feature of gender reveal parties in Australia. On several occasions over the past year, gender reveal 'burnouts' - in which cars emit billowing clouds of pink or blue smoke - have resulted in flaming vehicles and arrests.

    In the latest drone video released by police, the big reveal initially goes as planned, with celebrating guests filming as the car drives down a road, engulfed in blue smoke. After it comes to a stop, however, the car bursts into flames, and the driver and guests are forced to abandon it. It sits in the middle of the road on fire, amid plumes of smoke that is now black.

    A 29-year-old man was subsequently convicted of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, a spokesperson for the Queensland Police Service told CNN.

    Dangerous gender reveal parties aren't isolated to Australia. In November last year, the US Forest Service released a video of an April 2017 party in Arizona, which sparked a wildfire that burned almost 47,000 acres of land and caused more than $8 million in damage.

    Expectant father Dennis Dickey, an off-duty US Border Patrol agent, shot a target reading "Boy," which he had packed with the highly explosive substance Tannerite. The target emitted a blue cloud of smoke, but also ignited the surrounding brush. The flames spread to the Coronado National Forest, becoming the destructive Sawmill Fire.

    I did notice they had "gender reveal" mortars and rockets at the firework shop when I was there a few weeks back.

    I thought we were all genderless now. Or at least until you personally decide what genderishness you want to be. Labeling a child, especially before birth, should be a crime.

    I'm amazed we didn't invent gender reveal burnouts in America first. We are slipping.

    When Your Baby's Gender Turns Deadly

    Wooo weeee!!! If revealin’ a gender involves shootin’ stuff, burning rubber AND fireworks then y’all hold my beer while I rethink my decision to not have kids!!

    I saw gender reveal clay pigeons and was a bit confused at first. “If you’re a man, the clay dust is blue, you are a man, right?” How do it know?

    Hallmark should sell "No one gives a shit about your baby's gender, but thanks for the party!" cards for these.

    I can't imagine why I'd give a fuck about what gender someone else's baby was going to be. I'd didn't give a fuck what my own kids gender was before they were born. Either was fine with me. OK maybe I wouldn't have been cool with none of the above. For that matter what's with engagement parties? I guess they're fine, as long as I don't have to bring a present.

    KQ--you have a lawn? And kids in your neighborhood to chase off it?

    Perhaps the dad's rubber broke, so he needs to burn some.

    My fiancé’s kind of uncle wanted to throw us an engagement party. I was skeptical. Turned out it was a fucking blast. Good food, good drinks and just the company we preferred with non of the planning or crazy aunts +1. And no stress about wedding or planning. We just showed up, hung out with friends and had a great time and spent no money. Not sure why that would be a problem. Don’t think anyone brought a gift and not sure why anyone would think they have to.

    Well I suppose I could have chosen the word "disaster" rather than "deadly" but since you asked:

    dead·ly
    /ˈdedlē/

    adjective
    1. causing or able to cause death.
