Confluence of Crazy

While browsing randomly around a site about celebrity boobies I found this, about the nutball father of that poor balloon kid:

Since the incident, Robert Thomas, a former assistant of Richard Heene’s, gave an interview to Gawker that revealed Falcon’s dad was planning to use a UFO-like weather balloon to generate publicity for a reality show which he would then use to warn the masses about lizard people. I’m not even joking:

But he was motivated by theories I thought were far-fetched. Like Reptilians — the idea there are alien beings that walk among us and are shape shifters, able to resemble human beings and running the upper echelon of our government. Somehow a secret government has covered all this up since the U.S. was established, and the only way to get the truth out there was to use the mainstream media to raise Richard to a status of celebrity, so he could communicate with the masses.
As the weeks progressed, his theories got more and more extreme and paranoid. A lot of it surrounded 2012, and the possibility of there being an apocalyptic moment. Richard likes to talk a lot about the possibility of the Sun erupting in a large-scale solar flare that wipes out the Earth. It got to the point where he was really pressing me, saying we’re running out of time, we’re running out of time, the end of the world is coming. And we have to take necessary precautions to make sure that we’re not among the majority that’s going to be killed.

Sounds like he’s a student of Icke. I didn’t realize there were degrees of separation between Alex Jones-style conspiratorial lunacy and “Balloon Boy,” but it’s a helluva trivia question.
