    California Fire Caused By Explosive At Gender-Reveal Party

    California fire caused by explosive at gender-reveal party

    El Dorado blaze which has burned 7,000-acres was caused by ‘smoke generating pyrotechnic device’, fire department says

    A fire in California that has burned more than 7,000 acres was caused by a “pyrotechnic device used at a gender reveal party”, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has found.


    In a statement released late on Sunday, the department said: “The fire began at 10:23 am on September 5, 2020 in the El Dorado Ranch Park in Yucaipa,” before spreading north.


    The agency said the fire was caused by a smoke generating pyrotechnic device, used during “a gender reveal party”. The fire started on Saturday morning.


    “With the dry conditions and critical fire weather, it doesn’t take much to start a wildfire. Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be held financially and criminally responsible,” the statement said.

    The fire has since destroyed 7,050 acres. It has prompted the evacuation of 3,000 residents, CBS reported.


    Almost 12,500 firefighters are currently battling 22 major fires across the state, according to Cal Fire. Earlier on Sunday, Cal Fire said nearly 12,500 firefighters were battling 22 major fires in the state.


    Gender reveal parties, at which expectant parents announce the genders of their soon-to-be-born infants, often feature elaborate ways of saying whether the baby is a boy or girl.


    In July 2019, one of the pioneers of the gender-reveal movement said it was time to “re-evaluate” the practice and that her own daughter had begun to explore her gender and defy gender norms.


    In April 2017, an off-duty US border patrol agent, Dennis Dickey, caused $8m of damage to 19,000 hectares (47,000 acres) of Arizona forest when he shot at a target full of blue-coloured explosive as a means of announcing the gender of his unborn child.


    In October 2019, a woman was killed when a home-made device that was meant to discharge coloured powder exploded at a gender reveal party in Iowa.


    California has been dealing with weeks-long wildfires and faced record-high temperatures over the Labor Day weekend. On Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles county, the temperature reached a record high of 121F (49 C), according to the National Weather Service.

    Maybe karma for imposing a 1950s stereotyped gender role on an innocent child?

    Just show 'em your baby booties. They should be able to work out the rest.*

    Or just tell 'em.

    A non story.
    In the past . excited expecting parents to be would hand out cigars and announce "it's a boy"!! now they had a party , what's the big deal? Other than that, I am sure there was a restriction on the use of fireworks, and the parents should have known better, .As it is I am sure they will spend a hefty part of their child's inheritance in fines and defending themselves.

    Gender Reveal party.


    I honestly only first heard of this one or two months ago. And presumed it was some kind of orgy thing.


    Now I know what it is.


    A weird load of crap for Americans.

    I was in the pub having a celebratory drink, and this bloke said to me "What's the occasion?".

    I said "The wife's just had a baby, here, have a cigar".

    He said "Congratulations, is it a boy or a girl?".

    I said "I dunno, all cigars look the same to me".

    Being either male or female is 'queer', says a poster who's screwed 'only' four ladyboys.

    Driver jailed for bestiality

    The camel involved in the case is to be put down in accordance with Islamic law

    Published: October 02, 2005 00:00 By Nasouh Nazzal, Staff Reporter






    A man has been sentenced to three months in jail after pleading guilty to charges of bestiality.
    The camel involved in the case is to be put down in accordance with Islamic law.
    A court official said the Bangladeshi, who worked as a driver, had been spotted going into his employer's barn on a regular basis.
    His employer became suspicious as his duties did not involve him dealing with animals.
    The official said the employer, a UAE national, followed his driver into the barn one day and saw him starting to have sex with a female camel.
    The owner lost his temper and started beating him. He then took him to the police station to press charges.
    The official said the driver confessed to police that he used to have sex with one particular camel.
    The police arrested him and the case was referred to the Public Prosecution.
    The official added the man told the prosecution that he had fallen in love with the camel and had sex with the animal.
    The emirate's Criminal Court sentenced him on Wednesday to three months in jail, to be followed by deportation.
    It also stated that the camel be put down as its meat would now be tainted.
    The animal will be put down at the emirate's slaughterhouse, a representative from the Public Prosecution will be in attendance.

    Yea, except for the fact that the video you're citing is in the UK . . . talk about 'fuct', eh!



    Speaking about the video, the interviewer seems a bit dense . . . when the pregnant woman shows her home video about piercing the ballon and pink confetti explodes out . . . he asks her if she's having another boy.
