OK.....got it.

So......she acted like a baby and made it public and he is going to discorage this behavior by by acting like a baby and making it public. Awsome.....I'm sure she's going to take a lesson away from this.
You may question his methods but I bet his daughter is gonna think twice about asking for that puppy next Christmas.

Context is helpful. He had previously attempted to correct the behavior by removing the laptop for 3 months. Upon restoring the laptop she blocked her parents from her account and then resumed the behavior that got her in trouble.

The daughter seems to have taken much for granted. The father says on his FB page she lost 3 smart phones which he had replaced. It would be difficult to say she showed a level of care equal to appreciating what she has been given.

I will concede if his goal was to also embarrass his daughter he probably got her more sympathy among her friends.

I don't think anyone is questioning that the daughter needs to be disciplined, just questioning the means by which he did it. He says that his daughter doesn't know the value of a dollar, Is blowing away a laptop really the best way to teach her? Seems to me he's showing the same level of disdain that he's accusing her of.

OK, Here is my two cents worth.

Was shooting the computer a little sensationalistic? Yup. Was it a last resort effort to get the attention of a spoiled little brat? probably was. Do I agree with his reaction? No, but .....

This hits way too close to home for Teresa and I. Children in general are growing up with way too few of the values most grownups learned when they were young and "knew everything."
Too many kids today are growing up with two hands reaching out looking for someone to put something into both of them instead of using one hand for giving and one hand for taking. That's the way it is supposed to work. My thinking in this situation is it's more the blame of improper parenting than kids rebelling against society. We rebelled as teens ourselves, but we knew the consequences. Kids now-a-days say, " If you touch me, I will go to the police and scream abuse." This is the monster we, as adults, have created.

I am telling you , people, this problem is way out of line. The next generation scares the hell out of me. Those who are appaled at his reaction, don't have a clue of what's happening out there in the real world of parenting teens in today's world. Situations like this are happening in every city in America, bar none. And it's getting worse.

So, in retrospect, is this guy my hero? No, stooping to "their" level does nothing to fix the problem, but trust me, it gets "their" attention.

There's my two cents worth, agree or not, I have the right to spend it as I may.

Back to the "laugh your ass off" part of this thread. Guess this is football related, but oh well, suck it!

What team logos might look like if Peyton Manning and his giant forehead played for them.

posted 02/10/2012

Though it remains unclear which teams are even interested in signing Peyton Manning (who you may know from being the brother of Eli Manning), an anonymous user at SomethingAwful took the time to speculate by incorporating the Colts star's 25’ circus sideshow of a forehead into the logos of his potential NFL suitors. Here are some of our favorties:


No danger of this head getting caught in a plastic soda topper.




To real Redskins, this scalp would be worth at least two regular scalps.


Would a viking really even need a horn helmet with a dome like this?


Hope they may "Cheeseheads" in XXXXXXL.



Eye of the tiger, forehead of the hammerhead shark.


Ready to break some fucking car windshilds!


Aww. Nothing is sadder than a pirate whose ship is the short bus.


King of the 'special' jungle.


Once upon a midnight dreary, a mutant Raven was tapping on my chamber door.



If eagles really looked like this we would have hunted them to extinction years ago.

The 23 worst human names in sports history.
posted 02/10/2012

Not everyone can have parents who love and respect them, just ask UNC Charlotte center Ivana Mandic, who we feel should seriously consider jumping on the bandwagon and changing her name to either "Cincodos" or at the very least "Metta World Mandic." In any event, here's our list of 22 other athletes whose parents hate them.


Yoshie Takeshita — Japanese human name, German porn name.


Prapawadee Jaroenrattanatarakoon — It's like a cat walked on a keyboard and her parents said: "YES! That's the name!"


Misty Hyman — Gold medal athlete, certificate of participation name.



Desintee Hooker — Hooker! Get it? Like the rugby position!


DeWanna Bonner — Ironically, we Donwanna Bonner.



Karen Cockburn — Few people can say their last names are also a symptom of gonorrhea.




Ron Tugnutt — It's like his parents looked for baby name ideas on Urban Dictionary.



Sally Mangina — Something tells us she'd prefer to have a Sally Penis.




Johnny Dickshot — Like Prince, he eventually changed his name to a symbol. (This: 8===D~~)




Chubby Cox — From what we hear, it's not the Chubbyness of the Cox, but how you use it.



Dick Pole — Redundant.



Dean Windass — Or "Windarse", as he's known in the UK.




Danny Shittu — Incidentally "SHITT-U" is also the nickname of Arizona State University.



JJ Putz — His parents named him this because they knew he'd one day grow that stupid soul patch.



Lucious Pusey — ....and his brother Sloppy-Roast-Beef-Looking.



Pete LaCock — "It's French! Leave me alone!"



Rusty Kuntz — AKA the K-word.




Jenni Asserholt — Thing is, Asserholt isn't nearly as stupid as spelling Jenny with an "I."



Dick Trickle — Moving too fast to waste time on the "follow-up jiggle."



Harry Colon — "No, no it's colon like the punctuation mark. I swear!"



Irina Slutskaya — We've met her so trust us when we say: the name is misleading.


Capt. Jack Glasscock — This in actually an improvement over when he was Private Jack Glasscock.

Should I be concerned that both my First name and Surname are included amongst the sports people with worst human names in sports!?

He did that, for 3 months. As soon as she got it back she messed up.

so shoot it? what problem did that solve?

I'm not a parenting expert - but alot of studies show that if you don't have a pretty firm grasp on discipline by the time kids are 5-6 you are facing an uphill battle.
