    New Rocky Movie - Reactions?

    Quote:Original post by LessBread That's funny! You should have found your own off switch because now you've given me the opportunity to briefly educate you about the politics of Rambo movies. Actually, there are a great many people who are perfectly aware of these things. We just dont have to speak up about them at every possible opportunity, and are content to say things like "Oh, god, please no, spare the children the agony of another Rocky."
  2. Quote:Original post by Spoonbender But even so, how about punishing him for some of the serious things he's done instead? Quick note for this sentiment that keeps cropping up: that ship has sailed. For whatever reason, he wasnt, and yelling about it now doesnt make the kid any less in need of some discipline. Anybody who knows anything about child rearing will tell you that punishments need to be immediate, and obviously a direct consequence of the action that has just been committed, for them to make any developmental sense for the child. In other words, punishing him NOW for the old shit -will not do anything- but confuse the kid, in a developmental sense, and make at best a tepid point about discipline, so theres no point to harping on it. As said, that ship sailed before. Mom now tries a new tactic to get her kid in line. Good for her, because I dont want that little crackhead mugging me in 6 years.

    Gonna fly... I'm a free bird!

    Seems that some duct tape is in order when I first open my Wii.
  4. Quote:Original post by Endar So, he was strangled for 10-15 mins, then got his head violently stomped on. How long did it take the idiots driving the van to notice this poor guy getting killed? I'm sorry, you seem to have confused a prison system with a set of people who give a single shit about the welfare of those within it. At least he died before the anal sex.
  5. On the one side, I have to go with what most people will doubtless say: "Aw come one, just be a PARENT for once." On the other side, sometimes what kids need are a ride in teh backseat of a cruiser and a few minutes of being REALLY scared to make an impression. It might be just what the brat needs, we dont't know, because this is a "hardy har isnt that weird" news blurb. You'll notice the article mentions Mother and Grandmother. I surmise, perhaps incorrectly, that this is a single-mother household. Thats one point already, no matter what you say, towards a stressed parenting environment. Also, take note: "I'm trying to get him some kind of help," Sounds to me like another case of bewildered, young, single mother trying to figure out what the hell it takes to raise a kid right. So, after thinking about it, I say - Hey, looks like she's just trying a new angle - a good scare.

    Tasers and DWB

    Right or wrong, I still maintain that when the time comes for me to be unjustifiably tasered, I will be openly gad to take that rather than a nightsticking. One in a few thousand chance of a stopped heart... Busted teeth, collar bone and arms...... Yep, taser is still the winner. Hooray!
  7. and here I thought the Eagles were getting back together for another tour. Jerk. If you need me, I'll be at the Hotel California.

    Grandma's Boy

    That movie is among the 95% of all movies, wherein I watch the commercial, ask myself if it looks like it will stimulate my mind in any meaningful way, recieve the answer "no", and promptly ignore it. Lo and behold, "pot smoking" is integral to the plot. Not good so far on the stimulation scale. Can you tell me why I should watch it?

    the "New Toy" Thread

    My fiancee called and told me that she would be waiting in line to get at the new shipment of Wii's, on my behalf, for christmas, against our better judgement, simply because she knows I would like one. I picked a good one, guys.

    Bloomington, IL

    It's pretty much an Illinois thing. I come from Joliet, a large town of over 120,000 people, and theres STILL nothing to do, unless youre idea of a good social time starts and ends at bowling and drinking. Although, there are some extreme sports parks and such. But, in general, IL is boring. I read, learn, develop hobbies. Most of my personal time is alone-time, so I try to spend it in worthwhile ways(no tv).

    What the hell is with Bittorrent

    I experience the same problems when useing utorrent. I havent completely solved it, but search around the options for things like "max connections" and play with setting them lower... Even when downloading a torrent with, say, 12 peers and a few seeds, my client was registering over a hundred connections and choking my internet. Not sure how to fix it correctly, but look for any way to choke your clients command over your system.

    How do you know when you have food poisoning?

    Drink fluids, eat yogurt and relax. If youre not 2 years olf or 75 years old, youre gonna be fine. Sometimes its as simple as eating food that is far worse for you than what you normally eat. If you generally eat pretty healthy, and then go to mcdonalds, your guts will revolt. Its toxic food.
  14. Quote:Original post by azurexen attraction = love. BZZ. Attraction=love in the minds of young people who havent experienced enough of either to tell the difference. Hence why you might hear a lot of cynical statements like "love is only for the beautiful people" or something, or might draw, from observation, conclusions like cars and money having anything to do with love. A little maturity, a little experience, teaches people that, although not everyone. There's plenty of people who chase perfect bodies and fat wallets their entire lives, and will get drunk and cry over not finding "love" on the weekends. They never figure that part out.

    *blink* There is a place in this country, which you can come from, wherein upon your arrival in -Illinois-, you are THANKFUL for the road system? The road system that had all of its money sucked into the wallets of politicians for years, instead of upgrades and repairs? How bad ARE the roads in PA, man?
