I never quite understand why people need to get up other people's asses about what they eat. I get this all the time because I have a really sensitive stomach and I find that if I don't eat certain grains (mainly wheat, oats, and barley) or dairy products, I don't have horrible, debilitating stomach cramps,… » 7/15/14 5:03pm 7/15/14 5:03pm

Abso-fucking-lutely. This is what pisses me off about the "kids are too spoiled/kids shouldn't be policed" dichotomy. There's such a wide spectrum here, because kids aren't just puppies to be housebroken, or little adults that you can reason with perfectly. If my son wants his green sippy cup instead of his blue one,… » 7/15/14 3:30pm 7/15/14 3:30pm

That's what pisses me off about this story—the group should've called the police in the first place. Leaving your crying kids in a hot car for a haircut is straight up child endangerment, not forgetfulness. So this group just wanted to feel self-righteous and superior. » 7/15/14 2:59pm 7/15/14 2:59pm

Yeah, man. The fact that he had a history of violence and was only allowed visitation with his own kids under supervision by a psychologist—but was STILL able to legally buy a gun—has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that he went on a violent rampage and shot two adults and five children. Abso-fucking-lutely… » 7/11/14 4:51pm 7/11/14 4:51pm

That age is tough. They're starting to test their limits but they don't really respond to "discipline" in the traditional sense. At that age, it's all about redirection, but we did put him on one-minute timeouts if he kicked or hit the dogs. Around his second birthday, he figured out what timeouts meant and that he'd… » 7/09/14 11:27pm 7/09/14 11:27pm

Do you really believe that it's just ignorance talking when someone expresses concern that a device that's meant to prevent unplanned pregnancies could potentially be hacked—especially in a political climate in which birth control is virtually synonymous with whoredom? AND considering how long Heartbleed went… » 7/07/14 3:26pm 7/07/14 3:26pm

Wow, way to contradict your first paragraph. If we're in a group insurance plan together and you have diabetes, and I decide that you aren't eating healthy enough, I don't get to turn around and say that you don't get to have insulin treatments because it's my opinion that you eat like a total slut. » 7/07/14 2:34pm 7/07/14 2:34pm
